Product Description

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. As unlikely adversaries, 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.

Review

''Ladd continues to write refreshing Regency romance with a spotlight on the working-class countryside life as opposed to the ballrooms and bustle of London. . . the Romeo-and-Juliet-esque romance between Kate and Henry is perfectly paced and dimensional. . .'' -- RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 stars, TOP PICK

''A strong choice for fans of historical fiction, especially lovers of Elizabeth Gaskell''s North and South. It will also appeal to admirers of Kristy Cambron and Tracie Peterson.'' -- Library Journal

''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.'' -- BookPage

"He''s back! Henry Stockton''s back from the grave!"

Kate Dearborne has already seen the local ghost with her own eyes; the Stockton Mill owner''s grandson was apparently never killed in the war, for Henry Stockton has returned to Amberdale to join his family''s thriving business, and while unbeknownst to her father, Kate; through no fault of her own, has just become reacquainted with the imposing local figure.

Returning home after serving his country, Henry Stockton mistakenly believes that he is arriving back to the same peaceful community that he left behind; however, nothing could be further from the truth. His grandfather''s iron clad business tactics have hardened his approach to profit, stirring wide discontent between the local weavers and those who have chosen to step forward and become employed by Stockton Mill. One man has truly crossed the line; Charles Dearborne, son of a formidable weaver. But it''s the beautiful weaver''s daughter that strikes the eye of Henry Stockton; in spite of their differences, and it in spite of his business partner''s alluring daughter; who makes it quite clear that she wants to become Mrs. Henry Stockton.

As tensions rise and the stakes become higher, will Kate and Henry rise to the occasion, or will they fall back on conventionality and destroy any chance of happiness between them? For, "they were two people fighting the same battle on different sides of the war".

Enjoy Sarah Ladd''s melodic style, as she demonstrates her own knowledge of weaving; using the power of words to fabricate a beautiful story.

Henry''s loyalty is to his family and to the family business. But after going to war and seeing death and destruction he comes back a changed man. He isn''t interested in making money for the sake of making money. He is more interested in helping people make a living.

Kate''s loyalty is to her family and to the weavers whom she lives and works among. But being a woman she is relegated to the task of the dye house and working with the material. She is not allowed to participate in the discussions and business end of things that the men are.

In a twist of fate Henry and Kate are thrown together by chance in a way that speaks of Romeo and Juliet, or Darcy and Elizabeth. They come from two different worlds. They come from opposite sides of an age old rivalry. Throw in the fact that this is in a time in England when women are not allowed to have opinions and you face some real tension.

But Henry falls in love with Kate, but how will he win her heart. Kate''s father is in turmoil with Henry and his father and pretty much demands his daughter remain loyal to him and the weavers and thus stay away from Henry and the millers.

The story is very well developed. The historical and cultural aspects of the story are well researched and written in a way to help you see both sides of the issue and actually appreciate both sides, even while seeing the tensions.

Will love win out? Will weavers and millers learn to work with each other to further each vocations livelihood?

Will the beginnings of the industrial revolution cause a community to flounder into poverty?

I trust you will enjoy this book as much as I did.

As you might guess from my screen name the title of this book caught my eye immediately and it didn''t disappoint. This is a very well written, engaging story set in Britain''s Industrial Revolution when those who had done work by hand for generations were being replaced by machines. But unless that sounds too dry, there''s at it''s heart a story of a romance that was, unlike so many books of this genre, very believable.. The only reason I didn''t give it five stars, and this is being really picky here, was there was a lot of talk about "gig mills" - in fact much of the story revolved around the delivery of them - and even though I''ve woven for many a year I had no idea what those were, didn''t find anything online, and a brief description was given only by around the middle of the book. Overall though I really enjoyed this, and will look for more books by this author.

Henry was declared dead in the war yet he shows up, alive and changed. His grandfather, the stodgy old mill owner, doesn''t exactly welcome him home warmly. Instead he puts the young man to work and expects him to do as he says. Henry sees that things have changed, not necessarily for the better.
Kate is the first person to encounter Henry, she is a bit gruff but the two develop a strained relationship over time. Kate was different from other women. She was strong and believed things could change for the better. I liked her!
I enjoyed the drama and was quite surprised a time or two! I was sad about the state of things between the weavers and the mill owners. I don''t give spoilers so I must not say anything else.
I do highly recommend this book.

I always enjoy Sarah Ladd''s books, but this one especially so. The well-developed, realistic characters immediately grabbed my interest, and I found the plot a satisfying one, all fleshed out by tidbits of history of the time. The story moved along well, and I found myself quite engrossed in this tale of loyalty, struggle, and change. I constantly found myself wishing that the wonderful lineup of characters could tell their stories more in depth in a series... I will probably read this one again!

I love the historical element of the weavers vs. the mill owners and workers as the industrial period is introduced in England. While the main male character has just returned from war, his family and the family of the main female character are warring as well. The main romance develops into a sweet, satisfying relationship while other suitors lose out. I listened to the book on MP3 CD and enjoyed the book immensely!

The main characters come from two different (and rival) worlds, and to see them not only struggling with that, but to address it in a way you can see and understand the situations from all angles, that is what I love about Ladd''s writing.
