Just when you think that authors have exhausted a theme and there is no way that they can writer something unique, someone like Sarah Ladd comes along and shakes it up.
When I started reading The Heiress of Winterwood I thought I would have a cute book that was much like many other marriage of connivance books I had read. Half-way through the book, the book was nothing like what I thought it would be. Instead, I was drawn into a story with well-developed characters, amazing settings, and a plot that took many twists and turns.
Amelia was a very strong woman and I love that she is willing to do so much to keep a promise to a friend. One thing that I have realized is that in our culture today, we don't value keeping our promises. Amelia makes the hard decision that she will propose marriage to a stranger rather than go back on that promise. With that said, the one thing I didn't like about the story is I felt she was also willing to break any other commitments she had made in order to keep her promise.
I liked Graham as well. I loved how Sarah Ladd lead him through the grief of losing his wife, before any serious romance developed between him and Amelia. Graham was a strong hero with all the gentlemanly qualities that I love when reading a period book.
I recommend this book for those who love period dramas, plots that twists and turns, and sweet romance.
I was given this book by the publisher. No Amazon review, positive or otherwise, was required—all opinions are my own.
The Heiress of Winterwood by Sarah Ladd seemed to fit right into that regency genre. It had the feel of a Heyer novel with it's twists to the plot and bit of adventure to go along with the romance. I admit the characters weren't as well developed as Austen or Heyer were able to portray in their novels. I would have liked to know some of those characters a bit more. I may have felt more for them when they got into trouble if they weren't such cardboard characters.
Thomas Nelson is the publisher of this book so you know it is a Christian novel. The scriptures used throughout were, to me, a nice addition. Amelia turned to the Psalms a lot in her distress. It made me want to revisit the Psalms again. I wish Graham's character had been a little more filled out. We could have gotten more of a glimpse of what he went through to change from the wild sailor of his youth to the man of character that he is portrayed to be in this book.
The book is worth a read. A very engaging plot that will keep you turning the pages (or swiping the screen on your ereader).
The story was good and had a couple of interesting plot twists. I like the frustrating reality of a woman's place in society.
It was too similar to other books in the sense that I knew right away at the very beginning that Capt. was going to take Amelia as his bride. I also knew right away at the beginning the book that her fiancé was the rogue. All you had to do now was read and see how the author was going to bring all this about.
