Heiress of Winterwood: FANTASTIC Regency Debut

Heiress of Winterwood

Julie Klassen convinced me that I loved Regency novels (those set in England during the 1810s), and Sarah Ladd’s debut novel The Heiress of Winterwood is a wonderfully compelling addition to this timeperiod. I was swept into the story from the earliest pages. The plot tightened as it proceeded until it practically spiraled to an ending I literally could not put down. The characters are compelling and richly drawn. The setting is one that makes me long to hop on a place to England and explore a castle or two and Liverpool. And the romance is absolutely perfect. Add in a wonderful spiritual thread that had me nodding as the heroine and hero discover more of God’s character and nature and the book left me wanting more when I reached the end. I cannot wait for the next book!


Pride goes before the fall . . . but what comes after?

Darbury, England, 1814

Amelia Barrett gave her word. Keeping it could cost her everything. An heiress to an estate nestled in the English moors, defies family expectations and promises to raise her dying friend’s baby. She’ll risk everything to keep her word—even to the point of proposing to the child’s father—a sea captain she’s never met.

When the child vanishes with little more than an ominous ransom note hinting at her whereabouts, Amelia and Graham are driven to test the boundaries of their love for this little one.

Amelia’s detailed plans would normally see her through any trial, but now, desperate and shaken, she’s forced to examine her soul and face her one weakness: pride.

Graham’s strength and self-control have served him well and earned him much respect, but chasing perfection has kept him a prisoner of his own discipline. And away from the family he has sworn to love and protect.

Both must learn to have faith and relinquish control so they can embrace the future ahead of them.
