    If a book has the ability to be a time machine, a portal to another time and place - then Sarah E Ladds latest historical offering offers no less than to immerse one in a time long ago and in a culture far different than our own.

    A Stranger at Fellsworth tells the tale of Annabelle - a young socialite whom the world seems to be at her beckoning when scandal threatens to destroy it all. Orphaned with only a rather repugnant brother as her ward - she is expected to marry a man far her senior and less than savoury in his manner.

    Annabelle decides to abandon her home and along with her maid, flee to her uncles estate and the school which her is superintendent. She finds an unexpected ally whom she literally bumps into but then when their paths cross at the opportune time when Annabelle needs a means of escape, he becomes her only option to remove herself from her brothers plotting ways.

    That ally - Owen Locke has secrets of his own. Tragedy and scandal follow him as well but there is nothing he wouldnt do for his young daughter. When Annabelle is made a teacher at the school where she attends - more bonds will be created.

    With the threat of poachers weighing heavy over the estate of Fellsworth and its neighbours - Owen and Annabelle may need each other more than they can ever guess as the danger maybe closer than home than they could ever have guessed.

    I read this book in almost one sitting - it had suspense aplenty and just the right amount of tension to make it un-put-down-able.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher via The Fiction Guild, and was not required to post a positive review. The opinions expressed are my own.

    A Clean, Historical Romance.

    Another wonderful story by Sarah E. Ladd. Miss Annabelle Thorley is being forced to marry a man against her will. After being rescued from a purse snatcher by Owen Locke, she enlists his help in escaping her brother's wrath when she refuses to marry the man he chose.

    Owen takes Annabelle to her aunt and uncle in Fellsworth, where she becomes an under teacher at the Fellsworth School. Owen and Annabelle get to know each other and he determines to keep Annabelle safe from her brother. Will he succeed and lose his heart in the process?

    I truly enjoyed this book and found it came together very nicely. The characters were well developed and we even got to see a little more of the superintendent of the school in this book. If you like clean, historical romances, this is just the ticket. Enjoy!

    Nice Finish to Series

    Stranger at Fellsworth was a nice finish to this series. With Sarah Ladd, there isn't always a predictable ending, which I like, and her storylines are somwhat different. I liked Owen's integrity and Annabelle's search for a better life, rocky though it was.

    This book was a page-turner, although I liked the first two books in series a bit more. The only common thread in the series is Fellsworth, and the ocassional appearance of the couple who run the school - each of the books could be stand-alone quite easily.

    The message from this book is that doing the right and best thing is not always the easiest, but it pays to stay the course.

    good historical romance

    Another good historical book by Sarah Ladd. This one was a little different in that there is a change of class with one of the characters. It took me a little longer to get into this one than the 2nd one of this series. (I really liked the 2nd one a lot.) There is some suspense, and a little mystery. :) It is a simpler pl0t, maybe... I guess I found a few things to be kind of unbelievable. Overall, though, it was a good story. If you like historical romance, you'll probably like this one. :)

    4.5 stars- This is another stellar story by Sarah E. Ladd. I have really enjoyed this series- the stories have all been intriguing and the covers are gorgeous. Annabelle and Owen are both very likable characters. Owen is my new hero- Annabelle didn't stand a chance of not falling in love with him. Annabelle was also a strong character, navigating an entirely new world from the one she had grown up in. It is hard to imagine what life for a pampered rich girl in Regency England must have been like, and how completely foreign it would be to have everything suddenly taken away from you. She handled things better than I think I would have.

    I also really liked Annabelle's uncle. He was a strict but loving influence on Annabelle and the youth under his care and guidance. He helped restore Annabelle's faith in people and God. This story had romance and mystery and a lot of heart. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it to a friend. This was a great finish to a great series. I look forward to seeing what Sarah's next series will be.
