Her secret cloaks her in isolation and loneliness.
His secret traps him in a life that is not his own.

Cecily Faire carries the shame of her past wherever she treads, knowing one slip of the tongue could strip away everything she holds dear. But soon after accepting the position of lady’s companion at Willowgrove Hall, Cecily finds herself face-to-face with a man well-acquainted with the past she’s desperately hidden for years.

Nathaniel Stanton has a secret of his own – one that has haunted him from birth and tied him to his father’s position as steward of Willowgrove. To protect his family, Nathaniel dares not breath a word of the truth. But as long as the shadow looms over him, he’ll never be free to find his own way in the world. He’ll never be free to fall in love.

When the secrets swirling within Willowgrove Hall come to light, Cecily and Nathaniel must confront a painful choice: Will they continue running from the past . . . or will they stand together and build a future without the suffocating weight of secrets long suffered?

I absolutely loved Sarah Ladd's debut novel, The Heiress of Winterwood (reviewed here, and I enjoyed this novel as well. Ladd brings the Regency period to life with her sweeping scenes, her portrayal of the social mores of the era, and her appealing characters. Cecily's experiences broke my heart and her strength and compassion for her new employer engendered my admiration. Likewise, Nathaniel's strong commitment to his family and his forbearance regarding his station in life made him a worthy hero and one that I cheered for. Don't miss this engaging story, a must for your fall reading list!
