Darbury, England, 1814. Amelia Barrett, heiress to an estate nestled in the English moors, defies family expectations and promises to raise her dying friend’s baby. She'll risk everything to keep her word - even to the point of proposing to the child’s father, Graham, a sea captain she’s never met.

When the child vanishes with little more than an ominous ransom note hinting to her whereabouts, Amelia and Graham are driven to test the boundaries of their love for this little one.

Amelia’s detailed plans normally see her through any trial, but now, desperate and shaken, she’s forced to examine her soul and face her one weakness: pride. Graham’s strength and self-control have served him well and earned him much respect, but chasing perfection has kept him a prisoner of his own discipline - and away from the family he has sworn to love and protect.

In The Heiress of Winterwood, the first book in author Sarah Ladd's Whispers on the Moors series, both must learn to accept God’s sovereignty and relinquish control so that they can grasp the future He has for planned for them.

The Heiress of Winterwood (Whispers On The Moors)

Book Summary: Amelia Barrett gave her word. Keeping it could cost her everything.
Darbury, England, 1814
Amelia Barrett, heiress to an estate nestled in the English moors, defies family expectations and promises to raise her dying friend’s baby. She'll risk everything to keep her word—even to the point of proposing to the child’s father—a sea captain she’s never met. When the child vanishes with little more than an ominous ransom note hinting to her whereabouts, Amelia and Graham are driven to test the boundaries of their love for this little one. Amelia’s detailed plans would normally see her through any trial, but now, desperate and shaken, she’s forced to examine her soul and face her one weakness: pride. Graham’s strength and self-control have served him well and earned him much respect, but chasing perfection has kept him a prisoner of his own discipline. And away from the family he has sworn to love and protect. Both must learn to accept God’s sovereignty and relinquish control so they can grasp the future He has for planned for them.

Review: I really enjoyed this book. This is my first book written by Sarah Ladd but it will not be my last. The entire story was captivating. I loved Amelia and Graham they were great and very realistic. Many of the events were realistic but also not difficult to predict. The dialog and secondary characters were unknown which easily made everyone suspect. All of which merged perfectly with events as they unfolded for the characters. It was not difficult to figure out who was the kidnapper but the extent that this person went to acquire money was startling. I liked the resolution to events that were very realistic and yet the very end left so many more questions than answers. I felt let down because there were some loose ends that I wanted to see resolved. I am hoping that some of these things get resolved in the next book in this series………. Over all this was a thrilling read with dynamic characters.
I would like to thank Book Sneeze and Thomas Nelson for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

I Savored This Book by Maureen on 5/1/13

I savored this book, and it read so fast. You feel like you were with Amelia Barrett and living in Winterwood. England is at War with America and it is the year 1812.
Captain Graham Sterling is home, while his ship is being repaired, and has made his way to Winterwood for the first glimpse of his daughter Lucy. His wife died right after her birth, and Amelia promised to take care of the little one. She will do anything to keep her promise. Going as far as breaking her engagement to Edward, and proposing to Graham.
You get the feeling that God is in control here, and the things that happen are not accidents. Although, it will keep you page turning, and put your heart in your throat. How can there be such a ruthless man?
Who will Amelia end up with? She needs to marry or lose her estate to some distant cousin. I did have some unanswered questions at the end of this book. Her relationship with her Aunt and Uncle, and cousin Helena has been damaged, and I wondered if they can repair it...of course with God's help all is possible.

I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Group, and was not required to give a positive review.
