Darbury, England, 1814
Amelia Barrett gave her word. Keeping it could cost her everything.
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 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 About The Book:
This is the first book by Sarah Ladd that I have read.  The Heiress of Winterwood is book one in her Whispers on the Moors series.  With this first installment, Sarah has gained a devoted fan in myself.  She writes with such description that I could almost smell and could picture vividly the subject matter at the time.  Sarah allows you to be involved in the story through each character's point of view.  The story is one filled with struggles in faith, romance, danger, greed and heart pounding emotion.  Sarah has really written a historical fiction novel that really has it all including tension filled action.  You won't want to miss this one!  I can't wait for the rest of this series.  What a joy to have discovered Ms Ladd and her gift!
