About the Book
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 seeking 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 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.

My Thoughts

This story, in my opinion, is very reminiscent of North and South. Granted I have only seen the movie once. But all the weavers and mills and rivalry...*Sigh*...I do love this time period. 1801, England. Can I have a time machine, please? Just to visit...you know, for a few days. This story also has threads of Romeo & Juliet as well...At least in terms of the rivalry...Don't worry...there is a happy ending to this story.

This story is such a moving example of LOVE conquering all. Overcoming offense. Breaking down the barriers of differences. A well-written story with wonderful characters. Definitely one of my favorite books by Sarah E. Ladd. I look forward to more stories like this one.

I received a complimentary copy of The Weaver's Daughter from the publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.
