The Heiress of Winterwood
Sarah E. Ladd
The Heiress of Winterwood was, in my opinion, a good debut for author Sarah Ladd. It didn’t quite meet my expectations (which were very high :) but I still enjoyed it none the less. I really was pleased at the author’s writing style, because it was engaging but not incredibly modern; there was a slight formality that comes with the time period.
I also found the characters intriguing. There were several times that Amelia did annoy me a little: I understood her love for little Lucy, but sometimes, especially near the end, I wish she would just listen to Graham and stop running headlong into danger! I was actually quite interested in Graham's brother, William- he seemed like nothing more than a ne'er do well drunk, but he really surprised me there at the end, and I hope that he'll be included in upcoming books.
I can’t say that the plot itself was entirely my favorite, but I am perfectly willing to read more books by this author, and I cannot wait to see the next books in the Whispers on the Moors series as they come out!
I received this book for free from Booksneeze.com in exchange for my honest review.
