I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.A Lady at Willowgrove Hall (Whispers on the Moors, #3) by Sarah E. Ladd
Published by Thomas Nelson on October 7th 2014
Her secret cloaks her in isolation and loneliness. His secret traps him in a life that is not his own.
Darbury, England, 1819
Cecily Faire carries the shame of her past wherever she treads, knowing one slip of the tongue could expose her disgrace. But soon after becoming a 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 for years and tied him to his father’s position as steward of Willowgrove Hall. 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 fight for a future without the suffocating weight of secrets long kept?
This is the third in it’s series(I swear this is only a coincidence….I have no idea why I keep jumping into series’ on the third one lol)
Anyway when the book starts, Cecily is already to run off with her fathers bosses son, Andrew. Her father finds out is about ready to beat him up, he manages to run and cecily is dropped off at a school for ladies and hasnt see her father or tween sister since. She gets a job a ladies friend only to find out that the lady is Andrews aunt.
On his fathers death bed Nathaniel finds out his father isn’t his father. His father is lady steward but his biological father was lady husband…..the secret has been kept so as not to shame either family although wanted to raise him as his own
As Cecily learns her new role as a ladies companian, and searches for her long list twin,!she and Nathaniel start falling for each other but neither thinks it’ll work out because of things in there past
The story is about forgiveness and how no matter what’s in our past god has forgiven us. Our characters learn that and also learn to let go and forgive in return
