A Refuge at Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky

I am beginning to love reading books about WWI and this was a great one to read. It was fun to read how Penny and Alex meet and then get to know each other. Some of the historical bits were great also. I loved learning a little about the Zeppelins and other things with planes at that part of time. There was a little suspense in the story and a lot of romance. It was nice to see the difference in living in London or in the country. It was smart for people to send the children into the country if they could. This was a wonderful edition to the Highland Hall series. I received a copy of this book from Bloggingforbooks for a fair and honest opinion.  The Great War shakes the world of a spirited young woman and the brave British pilot she loves, taking her from London to her family s magnificent country estate, and sending him into the war-torn skies over France. Penny Ramsey has always considered Highland Hall her home, but when Britain becomes involved in World War One she travels to London to assist her sister Kate with the eight orphan children she and her husband Jon have taken into their home. Doing her part for the war effort takes priority over Penny s dreams of romance until she meets Alex Goodwin, a Royal Naval Air Service pilot in training. Alex is determined to prove his worth and do his part to defend his country. Knowing he is heading off for the dangerous assignment of chasing Zeppelins across the front line in France, he feels it s unwise to form any romantic attachments. But he can t help admiring the pretty, warmhearted Penny and wondering what it would be like to find her waiting when he returns home from the war. As Penny writes to Alex, their friendship blossoms, and she becomes his tie to home and normalcy as he faces the hardships war. But being an RNAS pilot means confronting the enemy, and the fallout form those experiences push Alex beyond Penny s reach. Can God mend the brokenness left by the losses of war? Will faith and forgiveness bring them together again?”
