Waiting on Wednesday #130: The Daughter of Highland Hall

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're
eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Daughter of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky
Multnomah Books-October 7, 2014

About the Book
Strong-willed and beautiful, debutante Katherine Ramsey feels ready to take the London social season by storm, and she must. Her family estate, Highland Hall, has been passed to older male cousin Sir William Ramsey, and her only means of securing her future is to make a strong debut and find a proper husband. With her all-knowing and meddling aunt as a guide, Katherine is certain to attract suitors at the lavish gatherings, sparkling with Great Britain’s elite. 

When a shocking family scandal sidelines Katherine, forcing her out of the social spotlight, she keeps a low profile, volunteering with the poor in London’s East End. Here Katherine feels free from her predictable future, and even more so as a friendship with medical student Jonathan Foster deepens and her faith in God grows. But when Katherine is courted anew by a man of wealth and position, dreams of the life she always thought she wanted surface again. Torn between tradition and the stirrings in her heart for a different path, she must decide whom she can trust and love—and if she will choose a life serving others over one where she is served. 

Why I Want It
I enjoyed the first book in this series and while Katherine was far from my favorite character I am excited to see how she grows in this one! Also, isn't that cover gorgeous?!

I like strong-willed female characters so this one is right up my alley, plus its historical. I haven't been reading much historical fiction lately so I want to give this one a go. Thanks for sharing :)

Happy Hump Day!
