Heiress of Winterwood (#01 in Whispers On The Moors Series)

Sarah E Ladd
Also Available In

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 kind of book! [It] grabbed my attention from the first lines and I eagerly returned to its pages." -Julie Klassen, Best-Selling, Award-Winning Author

"If you are a fan of Jane Austen and Jane Eyre, you will love Sarah E. Ladd's debut." -USAToday.com

Sweet Regency Romance
4 stars By Hannah, Aug 11 2016
I really enjoyed this story. It had intrigue, laughs, history and characters I loved getting to know. I especially loved the main character's determination to keep her promise, no matter what, and the journey it took her on as she discovered not just romance but faith. A really sweet regency romance. Looking forward to reading more by this author.

An excellent first book in a new series
4 stars By sarah, Apr 05 2014
This book has it all, drama, romance and a dash of adventure! It follows a young woman's quest to continue to care for a baby entrusted to her despite obstacles threatening to tear them apart. Set in the early1800s, it is an intriguing storyline.

There is a focus on trusting God and prayer being a weapon when the most difficult circumstances arise for the main characters. Since we often turn to prayer as a last resort or after a difficult circumstance, it was encouraging these people did not. The author gently reminds us that God wishes us to turn to Him first thing in all situations.  Yet this was done subtly, and naturally.

The love grew naturally between the main characters. It didn't feel forced or rushed, and I appreciated the way the author examined the many differences in lifestyle between them, keeping with the important societal norms of the 1800s. The story included several twists and turns keeping my attention to the very end. I am about to start reading the second book in this series. I recommend it for fans of historical romance.

Thoroughly Entertaining
4 stars By Karen, Jan 02 2014
The Heiress of Winterwood is a highly entertaining novel, and I enjoyed it from start to finish!  I was also really glad to find that there is another book in the series.  The author maintains the attention of the reader really well, and I didn't find there were any lulls in the story.  A definite keeper, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys period romance novels.

Solid Christian Regency Debut
4 stars By Iola, Apr 18 2013
Amelia Barrett is the heiress of the Winterwood estate, but must marry before her twenty-fourth birthday in order to inherit. She is engaged to Edward Littleton, but he has a condition to marriage: she must give up Lucy, the nine-month-old daughter of her best friend, who died shortly after giving birth. But Amelia has a plan...

Captain Graham Sterling has just returned to his home of Darbury in England, and has met his baby daughter for the first time, having been at sea fighting the Americans for over a year. He is still mourning the loss of his beloved Katharine when Amelia makes him an unusual offer: to care for Lucy as her own daughter, if he will only marry her to secure her inheritance. However, her current fianc - not to mention her guardians - won't like this development. 

The best stories are the ones that are original, somewhat unpredictable and end up being better than expected. The Heiress of Winterwood certainly fits that description as both Amelia and Graham face obstacles from both their families which turn what could have been a predictable Regency romance into a fast-paced and exciting romantic suspense with some unexpected twists.
