More About The Weaver's Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd

Kate's loyalties bind her to the past. Henry's loyalties compel him to strive for a better future.

In a landscape torn between tradition and vision, can two souls find the strength to overcome their preconceptions?

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 hoping to find a refuge from his haunting memories. Determined to bury the past, he embraces his grandfather's goals to modernize his family's wool mill, regardless of the grumblings from the local weavers. When tragedy strikes shortly after his arrival, Henry must sort out the truth from suspicion if he is to protect his family's livelihood and legacy.

Henry has been warned about the Dearborne family. Kate, too, has been advised to stay far away from the Stocktons, but chance meetings continue to bring her to Henry's side, blurring the jagged lines between loyalty, justice, and truth. Kate ultimately finds herself with the powerful decision that will forever affect her village's future. Born on opposite sides of the conflict, Henry and Kate must come together to find a way to create peace for their families, and their village, and their souls--even if it means risking their hearts in the process.

Romance: Hot off the presses

A Swedish journalist finds danger and romance in High Risk by Simona Ahrnstedt. Reporter Ambra Vinter’s latest assignment takes her back to the small town north of Stockholm where she grew up as a neglected foster child. Unsettled by her return during the dark Swedish winter, she strikes up a conversation with an attractive man in a hotel bar. Ex-special forces operative Tom Lexington enjoys the encounter, but he’s nursing a broken heart. As time passes, however, he spends more time with Ambra. Love seems possible, but there are obstacles in the way: their pasts, an old flame and the risks Ambra takes as she attempts to unmask a child abuser. This intense tale tackles other social subjects as well, including cyberbullying and misogyny. Readers will root for these characters as they grapple with moral questions and how far they’re willing to go to right terrible wrongs. Sexy, sophisticated and set in an alluring locale, High Risk offers plenty of grit and suspense.

The wheels of progress threaten new love in the kisses-only historical romance The Weaver’s Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd. Textile manufacturing is changing in early 19th-century Yorkshire, England. Henry Stockton returns from war with scars without and within, but he’s determined to support his grandfather in his dream to modernize the family’s wool mill. The changes infuriate the area’s weavers, who feel the mechanization threatens their traditions and their livelihoods. Lines are drawn in the village, and Henry finds himself on the opposing side from the lovely Kate Dearborne. Kate’s father forbids the tentative friendship between the pair, but as the conflict heats up between village factions, Kate must reach out to the man her father considers an enemy. Loyalty, love and forgiveness all have their place in this story, which is rich with historical detail. Readers will sympathize with the characters’ inner struggles as they face the difficulties that come when a way of life must transform.

A wandering woman lands in the small town of Laurel Springs, Texas, in Mornings on Main by Jodi Thomas. Raised by a rootless, constantly traveling father, Jillian James has followed in his footsteps, making no friends and hardly any memories. But in Laurel Springs, she takes a temp job at a quilting store that puts her in close contact with elderly owner Eugenia, her grandson Connor and his rebellious teen daughter, Sunnie. They are all better for it, but Jillian is still determined to move on. She always does, after all. But Connor’s roots run deep; he’s both the newspaper publisher and mayor of Laurel Springs, with a child and a beloved older relative in town. So as he and Jillian gently explore their connection, their fledgling romance can only be bittersweet as its end date looms. Mornings on Main is a tissue-worthy book to treasure.
