Daughter Highland HallHi Friends

As an author of historical fiction I want to help readers step back in time and bring my chosen time period to life. One way I try to do this is by including the fashions, hairstyles, and jewelry of the era. I want my descriptions to help readers “see” my characters and sense a connection with them.

My next book, The Daughter of Highland Hall, follows the Ramsey family as they travel to London in 1912 for the social season. The heroine of this story is Katherine (Kate) Ramsey, a wealthy young debutante who is looking forward to coming out into society and hopefully receiving a marriage proposal while she is in London for her first season.

Edwardian HairstylesResearching the clothes and jewelry Kate might have worn for the different events she would attend and how she would’ve fixed her hair was fun research! I learned young women spent hours each day dressing, changing, and preparing for the next event. It’s a good thing these wealthy young women often had a lady’s maids to help them because they never would’ve been able to do it all themselves!

Lady Mary of Downton AbbeyPinterest has been a great place to research Edwardian fashions, jewelry, and hairstyles. I have created several boards with images that I can refer to and that my readers can enjoy.

Would you like to see more photos of Edwardian hairstyles, jewelry, or fashions? Click on over to my Pinterest pages and take a look.

jeweled combThe Daughter of Highland Hall is available for pre-order and will be released October 7th. Until then I hope you’ll enjoy reading The Governess of Highland Hall or one of my other books listed here.

Happy Reading!
