    Lovely and Enticing!

    "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.

    Keeps your interest

    This novel is set within the time period of the Indusrial Revolution in Yorkshire, England. Henry Stockton is coming home to the village of Amberdale after serving as a soldier for three years. The sights, sounds, and actions of war has caused him to have nightmares and flashbacks, but he must fight it and begin working with his grandfather in his textile mill. It's a very volatile time with new machinery being invented that will improve efficiency but also cause many to lose their jobs. Kate Dearborne works as a weaver with her father, but he is not willing to progress and is clinging to the old ways. Millers vs Weavers is beginning to start a war in their village with threats of damage to the mills. Henry just thought he was back from the war! I enjoyed getting to know each character and their personalities, some good, some questionable. The story moved right along with action and danger within the pages. New friendships were formed while old ones died away. Loyalty is questioned as pride and bitterness take root. And yes, there is romance too! The author described the time period perfectly to where I could picture myself there among the turmoil. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through the Fiction Guild but was not required to write a review.

    well written and very appealing

    The Dearbornes are weavers; the Stocktons are mill owners. Competing in the textile industry, differing philosophies and strong feelings have left the families enemies. When Henry Stockon returns from war, he finds himself different; he still wants to run his family's business to the best of his capabilities, but he also finds himself at odds with some of his grandfather's sentiments Kate Dearborne has worked her whole life to learn about weaving, trying to please her father, and her loyalty lies with him. But as Henry shows himself to be different than her grandfather, and her father shows himself to be more prideful and stubborn than she realized, Kate starts to question where her loyalty truly lies. This book started a little slowly for me, likely because I know nothing about the textile business and the competition between weavers and mill owners, but it quickly picked up. Kate's struggle to be loyal to a father who never quite manages to see her value while at the same time being drawn to Henry and his willingness to listen to her views was such a compelling plot line and made her such a great character. Henry, hurting from the war and his actions in it, is in a position to open to learning more about others, a position perhaps he wouldn't have been in without the war, which was a beautifully subtle message about how God can make horrible things work for our good. The historical setting was so interesting--the textile aspect that at first seemed a little dull to me became really fascinating as Henry and Kate shared their views and showed how there weren't any easy answers to figure out what would most benefit their village. There were intriguing supporting characters as well; I really liked Kate's brother Charles especially. Well written and really appealing. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
