Irishniff5 Stars Out Of 5Worth The ReadAugust 14, 2018IrishniffQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Sarah Ladd's historical romantic suspense is definitely worth the read. From the beginning, I was drawn in and invested in these memorable characters. The idea that Amelia, the heroine, would go against society's unwritten rules and her family to demonstrate such kindness to a child paints a beautiful picture of sacrificial love. As Amelia chooses to love, she is surrounded by a small community who supports her. What a great example for our world today. As the mystery unfolds, Amelia learns lessons about herself and her faith. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough and I didn't want this story to end. The Heiress of Winterwood is a good choice for book club discussion. It is also a great gift idea for young adult readers. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher. All opinions in this review are my own.
MagisterMichiganAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great start to seriesJune 21, 2017MagisterMichiganAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a wonderfully winsome story about two head-strong characters whose lives intersect because they both loved the same woman and her motherless child. Heiress Amelia Barrett has cared for 9 month old Lucy since her friend Katherine's untimely death. Widowed naval Captain Graham Sterling returns to meet his daughter, and finds he may be getting a package deal.
This romance is interwoven with details of deceit and greed from several quarters. But the faithfulness of good friends like the Hammonds and Sulters help these confused and sometimes self-centered young neighbors find their way. I also like the redemptive side stories of their strained relationships with brother William and cousin Helena. I would have liked to know more about Mrs. Dunne. A bit of violence toward the end will keep your pulse racing even more than the chaste kisses and looks between Graham and Amelia. Another good regency romance from the pen of Sarah Ladd; part of a series, but may be read as a stand-alone novel.

LalaAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Debut!September 7, 2014LalaAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I loved Sarah's debut novel! The Heiress of Winterwood was such an unexpected good read because I felt it wasn't your typical Regency romance novel! There was much depth that brought the story to life in an unforgettable way since it wasn't just about two people falling in love!
From the very beginning I was hooked to the story and it only kept getting better! The intricacies of what was happening in the family had me thoroughly engaged as well as the interactions with the residents of two brothers at Eastmore Hall! Amelia's passion was so strongly felt through the pages as well as Graham's!
The characters and story were awesome, but the Gospel message was truly powerful! More times then once I have been in that same similar state with God as Amelia in struggling to trust Him with certain things in my life! I am grateful that Sarah made such a heroine who was not only believable in this aspect, but also easily relatable! Everything surrounding this novel had trust in God at the center of it as well as the truth that He will never leave us or forsake us!
I am eagerly looking forward to more novels by this author because she writes a not so typical romance mixed in with drama, action, and surprisingly mystery! I highly recommend this novel to any Regency era lovers!
