Eighteen-year-old Katherine Ramsey travels to London with her family to make her debut into society and hopefully find her future husband. Her overbearing aunt insists she must secure a proposal from a wealthy young man who is in line to inherit his father’s title and estate.
But Katherine questions her aunt’s plans when she gets to know Jonathan Foster, a handsome medical student and strong Christian who is determined to protect the poor and vulnerable in London’s East End. When a family scandal puts a damper on Katherine’s hopes for the season, she has time to volunteer with Jonathan, caring for children in one of London’s poorest areas, and romance blossoms.
Katherine’s faith grows and she begins to envision a different future with Jonathan. But when Katherine’s work in the East End puts her in danger, Jonathan distances himself from Katherine to protect her. A wealthy suitor reappears, and Katherine must choose which path to follow.
Warning: This is a second book in a series so spoiler alert!
Do you need something to read, something to take your mind off waiting for the final season of Downton Abbey? Then let the Edwardian Bride series be that thing you need. I really think Turansky has done it again, creating a world and characters you’ll fall in love with.
This second book is all about Katherine, in the first book The Governess Of Highland Hall she is introduced. She mean and doesn’t really care about anything but being in the highest light. In the second she done a total 180 she is kind and thoughtful, and I really liked that, but at the same I didn’t. Her past deeds are hardly ever mentioned in this book. It’s like it never happened.
The story continues as Julia’s brother enters into the picture. From this it’s kind of predictable, the man falls in love, the girl kind of has feeling then falls in love. But they never say a word to each other. This is the most predictable sort of romance story line.
Aside from that how Turansky tells the story has stayed the same. Every couple of pages it shifts characters like it will be Katherine, to Jon, then Julia and William. I like that she continued the flow of the first, but the main character was different. I’m excited to see where these characters go and see what happens as the series continues.
