"STORIES MAKE US MORE ALIVE, MORE HUMAN, MORE COURAGEOUS, MORE LOVING." —MADELEINE L'ENGLE
The Weaver's Daughter
BY SARAH E. LADD
Henry Stockton has been warned about the Dearborne family. Kate Dearborne, too, has been advised to stay far away from the Stocktons, but chance meetings bring them together, blurring the lines between loyalty and love in Regency England.
“A story of betrayal, love, and redemption, all beautifully rendered in rural England.” —Elizabeth Camden
Loyalty has been at the heart of the Dearborne family for as long as Kate can remember, but a war is brewing in their small village, one that has the power to rip families asunder–including her own. As misguided actions are brought to light, she learns how deep her father’s pride and bitterness run, and she begins to wonder if her loyalty is well-placed.
Henry Stockton, heir to the Stockton fortune, returns home from three years at war seeking refuge from his haunting memories. Determined to bury the past, he embraces his grandfather’s plans to modernize the family’s wool mill, ignoring the grumblings from local weavers. When tragedy strikes shortly after his arrival, Henry must sort truth from suspicion if he is to protect his family’s livelihood and legacy.
As unlikely adversaries, Henry and Kate must come together to find a way to create peace for their families, their village, and their souls—even if it means risking their hearts in the process.
