Mini Review: “The Heiress of Winterwood” by Sarah Ladd (Empty Shelf #3)

My third read for 2014 was The Heiress of Winterwood (the first book in her Whispers on the Moors series) by Sarah Ladd.

Mini Review: "The Heiress of Winterwood" by Sarah Ladd (Empty Shelf #3)

Here’s a mini review:

Set in the lovely Regency Era in England, Amelia Barret and Captain Graham Sterling (don’t you just love that name!) find their paths intertwining over their mutual love of baby Lucy Sterling. Captain Sterling’s deceased wife, Katherine, relied on Amelia’s care as her dying wish evoked a promise from Amelia to always care for her daughter Lucy. As Amelia strives to find her way as the future heiress of the Winterwood Estate and to keep her promise to Katherine, her pending marriage to Mr. Littleton hangs in the balance as she encounters Captain Sterling on his return from the sea.

The story is a delightful tale with bits of mystery, conflict, and romance as the characters find themselves depending on God’s strength for their futures. I really enjoyed the way Sarah portrayed the strictures and propriety of the Regency Era – with a bit of glamour and nostalgia.

Find out more about Sarah and her newest release, The Headmistress of Rosemere (my next read) at her website.

Thank you to Amber at Seasons of Humility and Juju at Tales of Whimsy for the mini review idea!
