The Governess of Highland Hall

Carrie Turansky. Multnomah, $14.99 trade paper (320p) ISBN 978-1-60142-496-9
Downton Abbey collides with The Sound of Music in Turansky's romance set against life in the early 20th century British countryside. Julia Foster is the daughter of missionaries, and a missionary herself, recently returned from twelve years in India due to her father's ill health. To support her family, she takes a position as governess at Highland Hall, home of widowed Sir William Ramsey; his disabled sister, Sarah; his two young children; and two female cousins. Julia must balance connecting with her four charges, combating resentment from all fronts, and living a godly life guided by prayer and faith, all while struggling with her growing affections for the master of the house. At times heavy-handed with Scripture and religious reference, this charming plot has elements of intrigue and passion blended with the allure of post-Victorian era sensibilities. Beautifully developed secondary characters add light and joy to the well-written narrative tapestry woven of struggle, challenge, heartache and triumph. Agent: Steve Laube, The Steve Laube Agency.
