About The Heiress of WinterwoodPride goes before the fall . . . but what comes after?
Darbury, England, 1814
Amelia Barrett gave her word. Keeping it could cost her everything. An 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 at 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 have faith and relinquish control so they can embrace the future ahead of them.
My thoughts on The Heiress of WinterwoodOne of my favorite book genres is historical fiction. I also enjoy mysteries and romance novels, too. The Heiress of Winterwood combines all 3 into an exciting fast paced book, filled with mystery and a growing romance. It is not often that I am unable to put a book down, but this is one of those books and I finished it in one sitting. I especially loved Amelia's love and dedication to her beloved friend and to Lucy, her friend's daughter. I also enjoyed watching as Graham moved through his grief and grew along the way.
I recommend The Heiress of Winterwood to anyone who enjoys a quick, and exciting book, particularly one that is historical in nature and contains lots of mystery and a touch of romance.
