"A Refuge at Highland Hall" by Carrie Turansky is the third novel in the Highland series. In this book, Penny Ramsey is living with her sister Kate and her brother-in-law and their 7 foster children. She soon meets Alex, a pilot fighting in World War I. The couple begins a letter writing courtship. When bombs get too close to home for the London family, they move to Highland Hall, the childhood home of Penny and Kate. Highland is an estate home with servants and tenants. The house is overflowing with the pregnant (two women), the elderly, the orphans and the wounded. Personally, I thought there might be too many characters. They seemed to trip over each other and sometimes had to remind myself of which person I was reading about. The storyline moves at a quick pace. It is a war/love story so there is a lot going on. Though I have not read the first two novels in the series, I had no trouble following. The author does a good job of weaving the back story into the present for easy flow. This is definitely a women's novel and a good sweet romance. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from www.bloggingforbooks.com .
