Henry Stockton, heir to the Stockton fortune, returns home from three years at war seeking refuge from his haunting memories. Determined to bury the past, he embraces his grandfather's plans to modernize the family's wool mill, ignoring the grumblings from local weavers. When tragedy strikes shortly after his arrival, Henry must sort truth from suspicion if he is to protect his family's livelihood and legacy.
Henry has been warned about the Dearborne family. Kate, too, has been advised to stay far away from the Stocktons, but chance meetings continue to bring her to Henry's side, blurring the jagged lines between loyalty, justice, and truth. Kate ultimately finds herself with a powerful decision that will forever affect her village's future. As unlikely adversaries, Henry and Kate must come together to find a way to create peace for their families, their village, and their souls-even if it means risking their hearts in the process.

JordannReneeAge: 25-34Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5A captivating story!April 24, 2018JordannReneeAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Weavers Daughter, by Sarah E. Ladd, is a Regency Romance novel. Its beautiful cover gives a glimpse into the exceptional story that lies within.
The novel follows Kate Dearborne and Henry Stockton in a story about two families who have been at odds for many years. When the two join forces what follows is a story filled with passion, mystery, intrigue, and of course romance.
One of the things that I loved most about this novel is the knowledge that you gain regarding the weaving industry in 1812. All though The Weavers Daughter is a fictional story, the author masterfully weaves history into the plot, making you feel as though you were in the midst of it all.
If you love historical fiction novels, especially those that take place during the Regency era, then The Weavers Daughter is one of those books that will captivate you until the very end!

PrincessMGBuffalo MOAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Lovely Regency-Era StoryApril 23, 2018PrincessMGBuffalo MOAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Wow! This was quite a story! Sarah wove a beautiful tale of love, betrayal, forgiveness and so much more into "The Weaver's Daughter." This was unlike any story I have read before with the town of Amberdale locked in a bitter dispute between weavers and mill owners. I literally wasn't sure what would happen next or what the ending would be, but the story was delightful and kept me entertained and enthralled until the very end. Sarah is a can't miss author in regency Christian Fiction and this book is no exception. If you like regency stories, check this one out!

SuzieNashville, TNAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5History, Suspense, and Romance!April 23, 2018SuzieNashville, TNAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love that Sarah E. Ladd writes Regency fiction thats more middle class than nobility. In The Weavers Daughter, she explores some peoples resistance to progress as the mill owners and weavers butt heads.
Caught between the two groups, Kate Dearbornes love for her father (a weaver) and her brother (who left weaving for the mill) causes strain. The return of Henry Stocktona man the entire community believed deadcreates even more tension in the town.
With rising tensions, attacks on innocent victims, a murder, and some serious chemistry and attraction between Henry and Kate, a rival for Henrys attention and more, there is plenty to keep this story interesting and entertaining. Kates devotion to her father is tested and she has to decide whether to remain loyal or do the right thing.
Ladds portrayal of 1800s England comes to life within the pages. Action scenes are timed just right with the more introspective scenes. And for those who are here for the romance, theres gobs of that, too.

Jamie3 Stars Out Of 5For historical fiction and romance fans!April 19, 2018JamieQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 03.5
I remember when Sarah E. Ladd released her debut novel and Ive been a fan ever since then. Her latest release takes you again back to England, with a story of family, changing times and of course, love.
I really appreciated the tension of change and community Ladd looked at. Was there one right answer? How did these communities deal with industrial change that took jobs away from people, but also sought to move industries forward and make them more efficient? I think of the ways life has changed during my lifetime, growing up in such a technological world, and that while it has changed in very different ways, we can see some of the same effect changes have made on industries today. What an interesting and scary time that was for England.
I also really appreciated that the ending was fitting and accurate. A satisfying ending to an entertaining read. If you enjoy historical romances with family and loyalties tested, be sure to snag a copy of The Weavers Daughter.

pattistep4 Stars Out Of 5Loved this regency romance in a different settingApril 19, 2018pattistepQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was looking forward to to reading this latest book by Sarah Ladd. I was not disappointed. This is not the usual setting for a Regency story, as its set among the merchant class. The social and economic conflict between the mill owners and the weavers drives this storyline. It also sets the stage for the seemingly impossible romance between Kate, a weavers daughter, and Henry, the owner of a mill. I love Ms. Ladds writing style. Everything she writes, especially the dialogue, perfectly fits the time period. Not everything is pretty in this story, but the conflict and drama make for very interesting reading.
I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher. I was not required to give a positive review. This is my honest opinion about this book.
