A Lady at Willowgrove Hall

A Lady at Willowgrove Hall
Whispers On The Moors Book 3
Sarah E. Ladd
Cecily has a very shameful past. She's given the opportunity of a lifetime when she gets the chance to become an elderly woman's companion at Willowgrove Hall. This job could change her future as long as she doesn't run into anyone who knows her past. When she arrives abruptly and too early at her destination she encounters Nathaniel, the steward at Willowgrove. Nathaniel has his own dark secrets, but can't help being attracted to Cecily. They must both learn to shed their past before they can learn to love and move toward their future.

The author did a great job of creating drama, tension, and friendships within the story. The story and characters felt authentic to not only the time period, but also to the plot. The romance was more subtle, but still sweet. The secondary characters, especially Nathaniel's family were integral to the story. I loved the visuals that the author created as well. This is book three, but works well as a stand-alone since I didn't once feel like I was missing something from the story by not having read the first two books. But the story was good enough that I now want to go back and read them.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
