Home for Christmas

Sanctuary Island, #4

“A Refuge at Highland Hall” is book three in Carrie Turansky’s Edwardian Brides series. After reading this I will definitely be reading the first two books. Set in England during World War I, this novel gives a glimpse of what it was like for the aristocracy and commoner alike during the conflict. The story is very compelling because Penny and Alex both support the war effort and in doing that put their interests in the background. Their correspondence develops into true romantic feelings for them, but dangers of the war will not permit them to act on these feelings until an unfortunate accident leads them to each other. I very much enjoyed this book set in English wartime.

Book Blurb for Home for Christmas

Celebrate Christmas on Sanctuary Island, where the love light gleams. There will be snow and mistletoe...and two lonely hearts yearning for love, family, and above all, home.

Magazine columnist Libby Leeds has made a name for herself sharing heartwarming stories from her perfect life on Sanctuary Island. There's just one minor detail she's left out: she hasn't set foot on the island since her childhood. Orphaned and heartbroken, she departed years ago and never looked back-except in her fictional columns. Now a wounded war hero is returning to Sanctuary Island, and Libby's editor insists she cover the story by taking the long road back...


Army Ranger Owen Shepard is a tall, handsome single father, and now a media sensation. He wants to reconnect with his daughter, Caitlin, and make up for lost time by giving her a Christmas to remember. When "America's Favorite Homemaker" Libby Leeds offers her help, he jumps at the chance. But the sweet, reclusive writer is more intriguing, and more tempting, than Owen could have imagined. Soon, Owen and Caitlin are spending their holiday with Libby, decorating trees, making gingerbread houses, and warming up by the fire. It's the closest Libby has come to love and family since she was a child-but until she and Owen admit what is in their hearts, the home they are creating together will be only in their dreams.
