This the story of Penny and Alex.
Carrie Turansky has done a grand job of researching and writing about the Great War.

**I received a complimentary copy for an honest review.
Meanwhile love is blossoming between Penny Ramsey and Alex Goodwin an old friend of Penny's sister Kate's husband and Lady Julia Ramsey, Sir William's wife. Love also blossoms among the servants as Lydia finds herself attracted to Marius Ritter, an Englishman, born and raised but of German descent. Marius has been incarcerated at a nearby internment camp.
The story is fast paced and very well written. The characters are complex and I found myself disappearing into the story and losing track of time.The characters lived their faith and freely discussed G-d with one another. Their love of Christ was quite evident, but natural, not forced or preachy.
I felt as though I could stop by Highland Hall and find the Ramsey's in residence ready to receive guests and going about their lives. But there is a bittersweet side to A Refuge at Highland Hall, it is the final story in the series and I will miss visiting the family.
I was given this book by the author in exchange for my honest opinion. All thoughts are entirely my own.
I’m going to warn you right now that this whole review will contain nothing more than me telling you HOW AWESOME this book is. Because it is one of the best books I have read in a while.
I have often called Carrie Turansky’s Edwardian Brides series my ‘clean, Christian Downton Abbey.’ They are like Downton Abbey in that they include peeks into many people’s lives. However, we are never distracted away from the main plot, and every story becomes important to us so that we don’t mind moving from one to another. It is less dramatic than Downton Abbey, too, but it has the same … I don’t know. Beautiful vintage feel, perhaps?
The plot was AMAZING. I was so miserable when it ended, yet it was perfectly resolved. Although I think Julia should have had more children …
None of the characters got more or less screen-time than they deserved. I loved Penny to death (she was just such an awesome person) and Alex was cool, too. I like to see Lydia’s story resolved. Of course, every minute I spent with Julia and William was excellent. I just love Julia … she’s by far one of my favorite book characters. I want more of these guys!
The Christianity was inspiring and yet not too much. I think any Christian would vastly enjoy this book.😀
I was absolutely transported away to the era. I read far less about WW1 than I’d like to, as it isn’t as … I don’t know, modern-feeling as WW2 (yes, I did just call WW2 modern …), yet it is still a major event.
A few words for Carrie Turansky: THIS CAN’T BE THE END!!! I NEED MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This third novel had more of a focus on WWI than the prior novels. I especially enjoyed how the author wove in aspects of the war experienced by airmen (stress, pressure, failure, etc.) as well as the experiences of the common Londoner (knitting for soldiers and air raids as examples).
The entire series was delightful.
