Darbury, England, 1814. 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.

Read it in one sitting! I would recommend this to others.

I usually don't like Christian historical fiction, but this one wasn't bad. I hadn't read anything of Ladd's before so I was happy that for once I could get through a Christian book. Also, I really dislike male POV in this genre, but Ladd did a pretty good job. I found the climax a bit too drawn out, and also, the romance wasn't quite built up enough. However, I liked the characters and the plot. Overall, I recommend it for people who like Christian historical fiction because it is one of the better ones out there.
