About This Book:
What if the title, the estate, the life of security and splendor… what if it isn’t enough?
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.

I have never seen Downton Abbey, but I hear that fans of the show will like the book for that reason. I enjoyed this book on it’s own merits without the show! This second book in the series, had me enjoying hearing the next piece of this regency story. Her pushy and annoying Aunt really was getting to me though. I don’t think I would have done well with that. Well, maybe when I was 18, I would have. I don’t know.
This book was another great regency read from this author, and one you will enjoy if you like books from that era. It is like a modern Jane Austen novel. =)
