A Refuge at Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky

     I have currently been studying about conditions during WWI and it was interesting to read a book from the perspective of someone who was helping out during the war.  I would be hard to give up what you are accustomed to, to live somewhere else and help out with children who have lost everything.
      Having had a pen pal at one time, I can imagine how the letters between Penny and Alex went as they got to know each other in a not so great time in their lives or history.  Many great stories have come out of wartime romances and those letters are something to cherish.  I have seen footage of what many of the soldiers had to go though and can only image the fear felt knowing what Alex was going into.
     This is a great book as it not only gives you a taste of history, but puts it in a human context.

"I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review."
