Book Review: "A Lady at Willowgrove Hall" by Sarah E. Ladd
Cecily Faire is starting a new position as a lady's companion to the mistress of Willowgrove Hall. She has been carrying a secret with her for the past 5 years and fears it being exposed.
Nathaniel Stanton is the steward of Willowgrove Hall and carries his own secret. His secret could cause ruin to more than himself. As he gets to know Cecily, he is drawn to her, but to fall in love would be to share his secret and he isn't sure he can trust Cecily since she has her own secret.
I was drawn into this story and didn't want to put it down. I really liked the characters and felt for them. I had a few suspicions about how things might turn out, but I was wrong! So she was able to keep me entertained to the very end of the book. I was glad that they made peace with their pasts and with God.
"A Lady at Willowgrove Hall" is the 3rd in the whispers on the Moors series by Sarah Ladd. Since I realized it was the 3rd of a series, I checked the first 2 books out of the library so I could read them in order. They are tied together, but not in a such a large way that you couldn't read them independently of each other. It is mostly just a passing mention of a character from the previous book, without them making much of an appearance (if at all). I am still glad to have read the first 2 books, as I enjoyed Sarah Ladd's writing.
