Review of Heiress of Winterwood by Sarah Ladd

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.

My Review:
This story was okay.  It was well written and that helped a lot.  It is the story of Amelia, who has promised to raise her best friend's baby after her best friend dies after childbirth.  The child's father is away at sea.  Meanwhile, Amielia is betrothed to another man of her uncle's choosing, but her betrothed has told her that Lucy, the baby, cannot stay with them after they are married.  When Graham Sterling, Lucy's father, comes home, Ameilia has an offer for him, but will he take her up on this offer, which would be a solution to both of their problems.  He decides to take her offer, but when a tragedy strikes, will both Amelia and Graham realize that there is more to their bargain that they thought.  Lucy was a very strong character.  She had the best interest of Lucy in mind at all times.  Finally, Graham and Ameilia both realize they need to rely on GOD to get them through their problems.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honet review.
