When she turns 24, Amelia Barrett will inherit Winterwood, an estate on the English moors. The catch is that she must be married by then. Her aunt and uncle find a match for her, but Amelia fears he is not quite the man her relatives think he is. Since her fiancÚ refuses to let Amelia fulfill a promise to a dying friend that she would care for her baby, Ameilia rebels and proposes to the baby's father, a sea captain she's never met. Their love is tested when tragedy strikes. VERDICT Ladd's charming Regency debut is enhanced with rich detail and well-defined characters. It should be enjoyed by fans of Gilbert Morris.[Page 69].
