Dawn at Emberwilde (Treasures of Surrey #2) by Sarah Ladd, Book Review

Book Summary:

Isabel Creston never dared to dream that love could be hers. Now, at the edge of a forest filled with dark secrets, she faces a fateful choice between love and duty.

For as long as she can remember, beautiful and free-spirited Isabel has strained against the rules and rigidity of the Fellsworth School in the rolling English countryside. No longer a student, Isabel set her sights on a steady yet unexciting role as a teacher at the school, a safe yet stifling establishment that would provide her a steady environment to care for her younger sister Lizzie, who was left in her care after her father’s death.

The unexpected arrival of a striking stranger with news of unknown relatives turns Isabel’s small, predictable world upside down, sweeping her and her young charge into a labyrinth of intrigue and hidden motives.

At her new family’s invitation, Isabel and Lizzie relocate to Emberwilde, a sprawling estate adjacent to a vast, mysterious wood rife with mysterious rumors and ominous folklore—along with whispers of something far more sinister. And perhaps even more startling, two handsome men begin pursuing Isabel, forcing her to learn the delicate dance between attraction, the intricate rules of courtship, and the hopes of her heart.

At Emberwilde, Isabel will discover that the key to unlocking the mystery of her past may also open the door to her future and security. But first she must find it—in the depths of Emberwilde Forest.

My Review:

Dawn at Emberwilde by Sarah Ladd

Ladd sets the stage, introduces her cast of characters and draws the reader into the beautiful story and life of Isabel Creston. I could see Emberwilde Forest, Mr. Galloway and Mr. Bradford. The opulence of the estate and the fabric of the gowns. The details made this book a come-to-life experience for me. I was taken with the mystery of the forest, the true character of Mr. Bradford and more importantly, what Isabel herself would ultimately decide her future would be. A wonderful read full of emotion and love, Dawn at Emberwilde is definitely a book to recommend to your book loving friends!
Happy Reading!!!
