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.

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.
vjonesSt Paul, MNAge: 45-54Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Great historical fiction choiceApril 17, 2018vjonesSt Paul, MNAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1The Weavers daughter is a fantastic choice for those who like historical fiction. This book had my attention throughout and was really enjoyable. This was the second book I have read by Sarah Ladd. And I am completely hooked.
This is a story of two families and two industries at odds for generations. The tension increases throughout the story. While the weavers clung to tradition, the mills were switching to modern technology. There did not seem to be a logical solution to solving this dilemma. Emotions were high and no room for compromise on either side. And of course in the middle of the conflict are two young people from different sides who seem to be drawn to each other. The Weavers Daughter is about tradition, embracing change, family loyalty, and love in the midst of difficult circumstances. I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review
T. Robertson4 Stars Out Of 5Cultures clash in this regency romanceApril 17, 2018T. RobertsonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5While the story is set in the Regency era in England, there are still nuggets of truth that apply today. Misunderstanding and Prejudice can easily destroy not only families but entire towns. With progress, comes change. Change can be very difficult. Especially when you are a weaver and factories are starting to take over.
For me, the story started out a bit slow, but before I knew it the characters had walked their way into my heart and I found myself not only talking to the characters but also holding my breath and rapidly turning pages to find out what would happen next.
I enjoyed the character growth, with both Kate and Henry. Watching them as they began to understand the role they played in not only their respective family, and in the community, but also in the future.
Fans of Elizabeth Gaskells North & South are sure to be delighted with this latest story from Sarah! I give this story 4-stars. I look forward to reading more from Sarah in the future.
