Book Review: The Heiress of Winterwood



About The Heiress of Winterwood: 

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

Darbury, England, 1814

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.

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.

My Opinion
I am usually more of a fan of American historical fiction rather than European or English historical fiction but The Heiress of Winterwood really made me think twice about that!

I was emotionally drawn into this book from the prologue and it held me captive throughout the whole book! Sarah Ladd may be a new author but she definitely doesn't write like it! She has an amazing writing style that draws you into the story and holds you captive!

If you are a fan of Jane Austen, Downton Abbey, or other English books or just like a good book, then pick up a copy of The Heiress of Winterwood and be prepared to want more in the series that is to come soon!

Buy It: You can purchase The Heiress of Winterwood for $11.71 from Amazon.com
