Publisher's Description

Could losing everything be the best thing to happen to Annabelle Thorley?

In the fallout of her deceased father’s financial ruin, Annabelle’s prospects are looking bleak. Her fiancé has called off their betrothal, and now she remains at the mercy of her controlling and often cruel brother. Annabelle soon faces the fact that her only hope for a better life is to do the unthinkable and run away to Fellsworth, where her estranged uncle serves as the school’s superintendent. Upon arrival, Annabelle learns that she must shed her life of high society and work for her wages for the first time in her life.

Owen Locke is unswerving in his commitments. As a widower and father, he is fiercely protective of his only daughter. As an industrious gamekeeper, he is intent on keeping poachers at bay even though his ambition has always been to purchase land he can call his own. When a chance encounter introduces him to Annabelle Thorley, his steady life is shaken. For the first time since his wife’s death, Owen begins to consider a second chance at love.

As Owen and Annabelle grow closer, ominous forces threaten the peace they thought they’d found. Poachers, mysterious strangers, and murderers converge at Fellsworth, forcing Annabelle and Owen to a test of fortitude and bravery to stop the shadow of the past from ruining their hopes for the future.

Editorial Reviews

'Ladd’s third Regency outing (after Dawn at Emberwilde and The Curiosity Keeper) can easily stand on its own, but readers who enjoy this book will want to devour the trilogy.'
“This novel reads well and fast; its vivid imagery and likeable characters fill the pages. The well-crafted metaphors and tight sequences make for an absorbing read. Though set around the Regency period, the style is fresh and the voice genuine. The spiritual aspect of the novel does not overpower; it is woven into the plot and provides a graceful way to unite the beliefs and morals of Annabelle and Owen Locke. I want to read more in the series.'
'With betrayals, murders, and criminal activity disrupting the peace at Fellsworth, Ladd fills the pages with as much intrigue as romance. Inspirational references are limited to a few mentions of prayers. A well-crafted story for fans of Regency novels.'
'Once again, Ladd delights readers with a skillfully plotted, suspenseful page-turner. . . Like all superior novelists, Ladd doesn’t default to pat endings, offering even her villains a potential happily-ever-after by putting her faith (not to mention the characters’ and the readers’) in God’s abiding mercy.'

    This is a novel with that rare quality of writing where I don't have to particularly like the actual story, though luckily I did. And very much so. Tightly plotted and a compulsive read, I found myself staying up late, needing to know what was around the corner for Annabelle and Owen. These are characters that really grew on me quickly, and though I enjoyed reading it right to the end, I was a bit sorry to have to let them go.

    Everyone and everything is not necessarily what they seem in this story. One character in particular was almost morbidly fascinating in this respect, and I quite perversely enjoyed having her true nature come to the fore.

    Atmosphere is again very strongly established, with the setting enhancing the gothic feel of the narrative and almost feeling like another character, much as in the previous Treasures of Surrey novel.

    In hindsight, thoughts of du Maurier and Bronte surface around certain elements of this novel. However, while reading this and Dawn at Emberwilde, I remained immersed in the world that Ladd has created and I would happily return.

    I voluntarily received a finished copy for review through Thomas Nelson and Zondervan's Fiction Guild. All opinions expressed are my own.

    I really enjoyed the historical time period and the beautiful setting of the story . The story moves at a quick pace which I really liked. Annabelle was a great character. I loved her spunkiness and determination. After finding out that the family is in financial trouble, her brother schemes to get her married off. I was shocked at how violent her brother was towards her. I would have slapped him back and had him thrown out of the house.

    I loved the school that Annabelle decides to teach at and bringing her friend with her was a great idea. Margaret has been with her for awhile so there was no way Annabelle was leaving her behind to live on the streets. The school is interesting and at times very strict. A chance encounter with Owen Locke will prove to benefit Annabelle during the story. I loved the intrigue in the story and learned a bit about poaching. The author does a great job of bringing characters to life with vivid details and raw emotions. I loved how some characters were not as trustworthy as readers first think. Who will betray Annabelle ? Will her brother find out where she has gone. Can Owen keep Annabelle safe? These are some of the questions that keep the story so action packed and hard to put down. I applaud the author for a story that held my attention and at times made me really think about true friendship. Learning to trust is not easy and Annabelle will have to decide who she can rely on.

    I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Guild. The review is my own opinion.

    Stranger at Fellsworth by Sarah Ladd

    This book was sent to me by The Fiction Guild in exchange for my honest review. No financial compensation was received, and opinions expressed are my own.

    I truly enjoyed this beautifully written novel. I have actually not read a book by Sarah Ladd that I wasnt fully engaged in and didnt end up loving. I find her style of writing to be just descriptive enough to draw you in without being so wordy as to be boring, a challenge sometimes for those who write historical fiction in this time period. One of the things I really appreciate about Ladds writing is the nod to the darkness and romance inherent in Regency-era novels, while still being relatable and accessible to modern readers. I found the relationships in the story developed naturally and enjoyed the growth in each character. I also found the plot twists unexpected and unpredictable. In all, Id highly recommend this beautiful book for anyone who is a fan of historical Christian fiction, especially those who are also fans of Austen, Bronte and the like but don't want to wrestle with the more archaic language in the books written by those amazing ladies.

    Sqqqqquuuueeeeaaaaalllll alert! A scrumptious Regency with sinister overtones and a despicable villain -- well, more than one -- to thwart! The kind of story that will curl your toes in rapturous delight while sending delicious shivers of trepidation up your spine.

    As heroes go, Owen rates right up there. He might not be a traditional high society gentleman but he certainly has more gentlemanly manners than the men Annabelle has been associating with. And Owen has a strong sense of right and wrong, not to mention a protective streak where damsels in distress come into play -- especially where Annabelle is concerned.

    Annabelle's world has been turned upside down and hiding away at her uncle's school seems the safest place to be...only there are more mysteries in Surrey than in London and somehow Annabelle becomes entangled in them all.

    Impeccable pacing -- subtle nuances that might just be clues are scattered throughout the story and I was furiously trying to put the pieces together before Owen and Annabelle did. Depth and detail in all the characters, not just the hero and heroine, bring this story to life in the manner of a classic BBC drama.

    There's a glorious inspirational thread -- subtle but powerful all the same -- woven into the story. Though Annabelle's mother died when she was a young girl, she leaves a legacy of faith behind. A faith that sustains her daughter until she develops a faith of her own. There's a tangible link between Annabelle and her mother that is both bittersweet and joyful and it made me think about the kind of impact I can make on my loved ones. A great spiritual takeaway to ponder long after the last page has been read.

    Exciting, uplifting -- full of adventure and romance -- a perfect mix for a Regency read.
