Welcome to the Blog Tour for A Lady at Willowgrove Hall by Sarah E. Ladd

About The Book:
Her secret cloaks her in isolation and loneliness.

His secret traps him in a life that is not his own.

Cecily Faire carries the shame of her past wherever she treads, knowing one slip of the tongue could strip away everything she holds dear. But soon after accepting the position of 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 from birth and tied him to his father's position as steward of Willowgrove. To protect his family, Nathaniel dares not breath 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 build a future without the suffocating weight of secrets long suffered?

My Thoughts:
As with the other books in this series, I was immediately hooked. Sarah really has a way of drawing you into the story and making the characters all come to life. I have to admit I was instantly smitten with Nathaniel's character and could even imagine in my mind how he looked (very handsome!) This time period and genre is definitely one of my favorites to read - all of the chivalry and etiquette and proper manners just fascinate me. Cecily and Nathaniel both carried secrets and had hardships to overcome but they did so with dignity and strength (which is a testament to the way things were in those times). A Lady at Willowgrove Hall is a wonderful read and I highly recommend the entire Whispers On The Moors series by Sarah E. Ladd.
