A Writer's Review of “A Lady at Willowgrove Hall” by Sarah E. Ladd

{More about A Lady at Willowgrove Hall }

Her secret cloaks her in 
isolation and loneliness.
His secret traps him in a life 
that is not his own.

Cecily Faire carries the shame of her past wherever she treads, knowing one slip of the tongue could strip away everything she holds dear. But soon after accepting the position of lady’s companion at Willowgrove Hall, Cecily finds herself face-to-face with a man well-acquainted with the past she’s desperately hidden for years.

Nathaniel Stanton has a secret of his own–one that has haunted him from birth and tied him to his father’s position as steward of Willowgrove. To protect his family, Nathaniel dares not breath a word of the truth. But as long as the shadow looms over him, he’ll never be free to find his own way in the world. He’ll never be free to fall in love.

When the secrets swirling within Willowgrove Hall come to light, Cecily and Nathaniel must confront a painful choice: Will they continue running from the past . . . or will they stand together and build a future without the suffocating weight of secrets long suffered?

{My Review}

Sarah Ladd's third book was a great ending to a debut series

Sarah, as always, writes with precision and passion. The characters were as vivid as expected, and the setting of Willowgrove Hall that she's drawn with her words was just as any avid regency reader could wish. I loved the hero and heroine, and how their secrets, and actions regarding them, so believable

And can I mention the cover? I've loved all of Sarah's covers, but this one, with the stone wall and inner garden is my favorite!  

A Lady at Willowgrove Hall by Sarah Ladd released October 2014. It currently has a rating of 4.18 out of 5 stars (from 152 ratings) on Goodreads.
