The Heiress of Winterwood by Sarah E. Ladd
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I absolutely fell in love with the cover of this book. I was so drawn to it and I knew it was a book I simply had to read.
This story was absolutely fantastic; I can’t rave enough about it. I think it is the best book that I have read this year which is an amazing honor for me to bestow on an author that is new to me as I can be a pretty tough critic.
This story was suspenseful and romantic and yet it appealed to my motherly nature. The characters were realistic and loveable (well, most of them) and the ending had me on the edge of my seat. I did not see that one coming at all! I’m practically antsy wanting to know how it will all tie together in the next installment! If this book is any indication of future works by this author then she certainly will earn her place as a favorite on my bookshelf!
Amelia Barrett gave her word. Keeping it could cost her everything.
Amelia Barrett, 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.
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.
