As promised last Wednesday, today I’m back to give you some information on the other book I received from the Thomas Nelson and Zondervan Fiction Guild last month. This week’s book is The Weaver’s Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd.
The description from Amazon states:
Kate’s loyalties bind her to the past. Henry’s loyalties compel him to strive for a better future. In a landscape torn between tradition and vision, can two souls find the strength to overcome their preconceptions? Loyalty has been at the heart of the Dearborne family for as long as Kate can remember, but a war is brewing in their small village, one that has the power to rip families asunder — including her own. As misguided actions are brought to light, she learns how deep her father’s pride and bitterness run, and she begins to wonder if her loyalty is well-placed.Henry Stockton, heir to the Stockton fortune, returns home from three years at war hoping to find a refuge from his haunting memories. Determined to bury the past, he embraces his grandfather’s goals to modernize his family’s wool mill, regardless of the grumblings from the local weavers. When tragedy strikes shortly after his arrival, Henry must sort out the truth from suspicion if he is to protect his family’s livelihood and legacy.Henry has been warned about the Dearborne family. Kate, too, has been advised to stay far away from the Stocktons, but chance meetings continue to bring her to Henry’s side, blurring the jagged lines between loyalty, justice, and truth. Kate ultimately finds herself with the powerful decision that will forever affect her village’s future. As unlikely adversaries, Henry and Kate must come together to find a way to create peace for their families, and their village, and their souls – even if it means risking their hearts in the process.
I personally really like the era that Sarah Ladd’s novels are set in, being a fan of period drama and Jane Austen/Regency era literature, and Ladd does a good job of mixing history, romance, and occasionally mystery into her books. For some it may be an acquired taste, but fans of historical fiction should definitely check Sarah Ladd’s books out!
You can find Sarah at all of these places!
