Tension grows thick between the millers and the weavers in the quaint English

 village of Amberdale. New ways threaten old ones and livelihoods are at stake. 

Progress must trump tradition, but at what cost?

KATE DEARBORNE is as loyal as they come. Committed to her father and her community of weavers, she sees it as her duty to remain enemies with the heir to the Stockton fortune. It's the only way to preserve her family's way of life.

HENRY STOCKTON returns from war only to find that he must fight a battle of a different nature. Henry's grandfather seeks to update the family's successful wool mill which will replace the need for so many weavers. Despite threats and suspicious activity blamed on the weavers, it's Henry's duty to come alongside his grandfather for the sake of their own legacy. 

If only Kate and Henry would stop running into each other. Chance meetings threaten to break down barriers and leave them questioning if things are really as they seem. Amidst unexpected tragedy, betrayal, truth, and lies, will Kate and Henry be able to come together to bring peace once and for all?

My Thoughts

I admit it. I totally judged this book by its cover. Beautiful, isn't it? Okay, so I judged it by the author, too. I've read several other books by Sarah E. Ladd and have loved them all. 

I'm such a sucker for regency romance. The Weaver's Daughter is set during the early Industrial Revolution and gives a glimpse into what life might have been like for a small village. It's a heartwarming story of two people fighting to preserve their families' legacies. 

Feisty Kate and noble Henry are characters hard not to love. I found myself empathetic toward both of their plights, yet longing for a way for both to win. There's just enough mystery and tension to keep the pages turning until the very end. 

Book Rating: 5 Stars!
