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

Review: The Heiress of Winterwood (Whispers on the Moors #1)

User Review  - Kellyn Roth - Goodreads

3.5 stars This was a decent novel, but not worth a second read. The plot was rushed, but it was still a pretty good book. Just ... there should have been more of it. I felt like it wasn't well ... Read full review
