About the Book

Goodreads | Amazon
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 breathe 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?

I have not read either of the previous novels in Sarah E. Ladd’s Whispers on the Moors series, but in no way did that hinder my enjoyment of reading A Lady at Willowgrove Hall. (In fact, now I can’t wait to pick up The Heiress of Winterwood and The Headmistress of Rosemere.) I love a good Regency-era novel and this new one by Ladd is certainly a fantastic one. Within well-detailed scenery and situations, both Cecily Faire and Nathaniel Stanton come to life with genuineness and realism as each deals with the secrets of the past in order to face and embrace the future. The story is sweet, charming and heartwarming, so naturally, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I recommend A Lady at Willowgrove Hall for fans of Regency-era novels.
