Heiress of Winterwood *review

My Thoughts:

I sat and read this book in one sitting!! I was caught in from the beginning. I love estates and books filled with old English styles and homes. I only wished we could have had some secret passageways! 
The determination and strength from Amelia is just phenomenal.. much modeled after God's unending love for us. Beautiful story of love beyond what we can imagine. Amelia chooses her promise to a friend to raise that friend's daughter over her fiance and the desires of her family. Her love for this adopted daughter is as strong a bond as one of her own child. Amelia is a witty, fun character with a sense of wisdom and strength that only God can provide.

 About the Book

Darbury, England, 1814
Amelia Barrett gave her word. Keeping it could cost her everything.
Amelia Barrett, heiress to an estate nestled in the English moors, defies family expectations and promises to raise her dying friend's baby. She'll risk everything to keep her word-even to the point of proposing to the child's father-a sea captain she's never met.
When the child vanishes with little more than an ominous ransom note hinting at her whereabouts, Amelia and Graham are driven to test the boundaries of their love for this little one.
Amelia's detailed plans would normally see her through any trial, but now, desperate and shaken, she's forced to examine her soul and face her one weakness: pride.
Graham's strength and self-control have served him well and earned him much respect, but chasing perfection has kept him a prisoner of his own discipline. And away from the family he has sworn to love and protect.
Both must learn to have faith and relinquish control so they can embrace the future ahead of them.
