Product Description

As the steward of Willowgrove Hall, Nathaniel Stanton is dedicated to serving those around him. Nothing escapes his notice-including the beautiful new lady's companion. He is certain the lovely Miss Faire is hiding something, and he determines to uncover it. But Nathaniel has a secret of his own: he is the illegitimate son of Willowgrove's former master. Falling in love was not part of his plans . . . until he meets Cecily Faire.

When Willowgrove's mistress dies, everything changes. Fear of exposure forces Cecily to leave under the cover of darkness, embarking on a journey to finally find her long-lost sister. When the will is read, Nathaniel's inheritance makes him question his future plans. Cecily and Nathaniel are forced to make decisions that will change the course of their lives. Is their love strong enough to survive?

Publisher's Description

Her secret cloaks her in isolation and loneliness. His secret traps him in a life that is not his own.

Darbury, England, 1819

Cecily Faire carries the shame of her past wherever she treads, knowing one slip of the tongue could expose her disgrace. But soon after becoming a lady’s companion at Willowgrove Hall, Cecily finds herself face-to-face with a man well-acquainted with the past she’s desperately hidden for years.

Nathaniel Stanton has a secret of his own—one that has haunted him for years and tied him to his father’s position as steward of Willowgrove Hall. To protect his family, Nathaniel dares not breathe a word of the truth. But as long as the shadow looms over him, he’ll never be free to find his own way in the world. He’ll never be free to fall in love.

When the secrets swirling within Willowgrove Hall come to light, Cecily and Nathaniel must confront a painful choice: Will they continue running from the past . . . or will they stand together and fight for a future without the suffocating weight of secrets long kept?

    This review was written for A Lady at Willowgrove Hall - eBook.
    A Lady at Willowgrove Hall concludes new author Sarah Ladds Whispers on the Moors series, Regency Romances set in a fictional county in the North of England. The last two I heard as audiobooks, so this was my first proper read. There is little real connection with the characters or events with the first two books in the series, which might seem daring for the last novel in a trilogy, or for fans wishing to hear more of the characters from the last books, but it seemed to work well enough.

    The story is based around Cecily Faire, a hurting young lady harbouring a secret that she fears could ruin her, securing a position as a companion to the elderly owner of Willowgrove Hall. When she arrives she discovers a face from her past, and Nathanial Stanton, the steward who harbours a secret of his own. The setting is common for Regency Era stories, and though the secrets of the main characters are known to the audience from the outset, their impact on the characters lives and those around them works well as the central part of the plot.

    Although ostensibly Christian fiction, there is little real religious content, or at least less that the first book. However, there are important messages about forgiveness, honesty, and the destructive influence of bitterness and resentment on peoples lives. So it could be classified as clean romance with the Christian flavour, perhaps.

    The writing style was generally good, with some beautifully descriptive passages of gardens and the landscape.

    My only complaints were that the story did seem rather slow and lagging in places, and some inconsistency in the use of language. In some places, for instance, the characters used Americanisms that seemed rather out of place in an early nineteenth century British setting- but in other places the correct British idioms or terms were used. Also, there seemed to be some confusion of the name of the fictional county of Wiltonshire and the main town within in- which was also called the same.

    I feel it bears mention that whilst English counties may be named after the principal town or city within them, that town does not have the same name as the county, and they never have names ending in 'Shire'.

    The Romance was sweet, though some passages were a little clichd, but generally its a good, light read if you want a cosy, easy to follow, edifying story.

    I received a copy of this book from Netgalley for review, I was not required to write a positive one and all opinions expressed are my own.

    I love all three books in this series. You did a great job Sarah. I found it hard to put the books

    down. Hope you will think about adding a couple more books to this series. I sure was happy

    to see Nathaniel and Cecily get together and Cecily and her twin Leah reunited. I especially loved

    the third book.

    Sixteen-year-old Cecily Faire is sent away from home to Rosemere School for Young Ladies when her blacksmith father finds her about to elope with Andrew Moreton, the scion of Aradelle Park. Six years later, she hasnt heard from either her father or her twin sister, who she suspects is now living in Manchester. Cecily is given the opportunity to take employment as a ladys maid at Willowgrave Hall, where she meets Nathaniel Stanton, the young steward, and is reintroduced to Andrew Moreton, who she finds is the heir to Willowgrave and is now engaged to be married.

    I enjoyed the first two books in this series (The Heiress of Winterwood and The Headmistress of Rosemere), and while A Lady at Willowgrave Hall is good, I dont think its as good as the first two. The plot, while not completely predictable, isnt as original as the first two books, I didnt think the characters had as much depth, the Christian elements werent as well integrated, and the ending was a little too neat (there were a couple of changes of heart towards the end that I found more convenient than convincing).

    However, Ill be interested to read the next book from Sarah Ladd, as I do enjoy her writing, and shes still one of the top authors writing Christian historical romance set in Regency England (the other is Julie Klassen).

    Thanks to Thomas Nelson and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.

    Sarah E. Ladd in her new book A Lady at Willowgrove Hall Book Three in the Whispers On The Moors Series published by Thomas Nelson takes us into the life of Cecily Faire.

    From the back cover: Her secret cloaks her in isolation and loneliness. His secret traps him in a life that is not his own.

    Darbury, England, 1819

    Cecily Faire carries the shame of her past wherever she treads, knowing one slip of the tongue could expose her disgrace. But soon after becoming a ladys companion at Willowgrove Hall, Cecily finds herself face-to-face with a man well-acquainted with the past shes desperately hidden for years.

    Nathaniel Stanton has a secret of his ownone that has haunted him for years and tied him to his fathers position as steward of Willowgrove Hall. To protect his family, Nathaniel dares not breathe a word of the truth. But as long as the shadow looms over him, hell never be free to find his own way in the world. Hell never be free to fall in love.

    When the secrets swirling within Willowgrove Hall come to light, Cecily and Nathaniel must confront a painful choice: Will they continue running from the past . . . or will they stand together and fight for a future without the suffocating weight of secrets long kept?

    History, England and Romance now there is a recipe for a terrific novel and Ms. Ladd cooks the story to perfection. Cecily and Nathaniel are two of the best characters that I have read about in a long time. Each of them has a secret. Each secret has them locked into the past, afraid of the present and unable to move into the future. They cannot accept each others love unless they somehow break free of the torment of their individual secret. You wouldnt think that this would be a page-turner but it is. You fall in love with these two and you so want them to break free and embrace all that God has in store for them you just do not know how they can do it. Thats the beauty of the story watching to see how His plan for them unfolds. Great characters, great plot with plenty of twists and turns equals a great read.

    Sarah Ladd is a delightful author of British Regency romances. A Lady at Willowgrove Hall is her latest book -- and a great addition to your library. When you open the cover, you'll travel back to 1819 Darbury, England, and two people each carrying a dark secret...ones they can't expose. But unless they do, they can't find love. Sarah has the amazing ability to put me right in the middle of the time period. I feel like I'm there, experiencing the world as it was in the early nineteenth century. And even though the time is different, the struggles the characters battle are not that different from what we fight today...a secret that could harm others if it comes to light. A youthful mistake that could mar our future. If you love historicals, England, or Jane Austen, you have to try this book. If you love all three, then you will adore this story.
