The Heiress of Winterwood by Sarah E. Ladd
The Heiress of Winterwood tells the story of Amelia Barrett, a young lady who must marry soon in order to inherit her deceases father's estate. However, she has also made a promise to her friend who died during childbirth to raise the child, Lucy. When Lucy's father returns from overseas, Lucy finds herself torn between her fiance and the child's father.
As far as Christian fiction goes, this was a hit for me. Although definitely a romance, there was a bit of suspense and mystery. The storyline was well written and held my attention the entire time. Although God played a role in this novel, it did not feel preachy as some Christian fiction can. That being said, it was rather predictable. All in all, I would recommend this book to a friend. I will also be checking my local library to see if they have any other books by Ms. Ladd.
