The Weaver's Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd

35560583The Weaver's Daughter

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:
The Weaver's Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd is a page turning, intense plot with tight writing. This is a book that has mystery written all over it, with in depth characters and a very engaging plot. This book kept me on edge and had me until the last page. 
I couldn't get enough of Kate Deaborne and Henry Stockton. The tension between both of these characters, the build up and the forbidden romance. Great book!  Kate is a woman who has a mind of her own, but also believes in honoring, however she has been pushed and pulled by her father, friends and brother. Has she been been pulled apart? 
Henry is a surprise to everyone when he comes back into town. However, when he arrives home, things aren't like they used to be and neither are the people. He has changed a lot too. Will he be the threat to the weavers success for his own families legacy? 
The book transitions smoothly and will keep your attention. The setting is excellent with descriptions that will keep you wrapped up in the novel. 
I thought Molly was an interesting character too and I will not mention or give spoilers on who she is, but you'll have to grab a copy to find out about her. Sin and judgement are definitely a theme in this book, but so is forgiveness and salvation, which makes this book a page turner. Overall, I give this book 4/5 stars and a favorable review was not required.
