About The Heiress of Winterwood

Amelia Barrett gave her word. Keeping it could cost her everything.

Darbury, England, 1814

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 to 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 accept God’s sovereignty and relinquish control so they can grasp the future He has for planned for them.

My Thoughts On The Heiress of Winterwood

As it has been a crazy busy week I just got started with The Heiress of Winterwood a couple of days ago.  It’s been a few stolen moments here and a few stolen moments there but I am over half way through.  The Heiress of Winterwood is proving to be a good read with Amelia and Graham’s characters really drawing me into the book.

You are quickly drawn into the plot with the loss of Amelia’s friend and how she becomes the mother of her friend’s child.  Graham is a likeable character who has sworn to protect his child and as the book unfolds you see this happening at any cost.

With the typical plot of an heiress having to marry before a birthday that is fast approaching or she will lose her inheritance you know that a strong willed character is going to emerge who will go against the odds.  Amelia doesn’t prove us wrong with the path that she chooses as she learns about her fiances true side and becomes more aware of the side of Graham we can all fall in love with.

The Heiress of Winterwood is a great read that can be read quickly for a day on the beach or in short stints watching the kids at the park as the weather is warming up.  It was easy to get lost within the pages of The Heiress of Winterwood and I can’t wait to pass it onto my cousin who is always next in line for historical fiction.
