THE LIGHT AT WYNDCLIFF by Sarah E. Ladd - A Reader's Opinion
A Reader's Opinion
Atmospheric, mysterious, and romantic, Sarah E. Ladd's The Light at Wyndcliff, delivers a soothing escape with interesting characters and a beautiful setting.
Sweeping across the wild coast, the third book in Ladd's Cornwall series offers a slow-build to a tender romance between Liam and Evelyn, but she doesn't stop there. There is a nice little mystery of events mixed in to create an engaging tale that draws the reader in and captures the heart. Her settings are depicted so well that I walked along the beach, stood on the cliffs, witnessed a shipwreck, and even ventured into the village right alongside the characters.
Readers of heartfelt historical romance will enjoy Ladd's ability to transport them to another time and place. I can always count on Ladd to to deliver a wonderful story, and she never disappoints. The Cornwall series, with its crisp writing and sweet romance is sure to delight the discerning reader.
The Light at Wyndcliff
A Cornwall Novel
Perfect for fans of Poldark and Bridgerton, this Regency romance evokes the captivating worlds and delightful dramas as treacherous to navigate as the rocky English shores.
Cornwall, England, 1820
Raised on the sprawling and rugged Wyndcliff Estate near the dangerous coast of South Cornwall, Evelyn Bray lives with her grandfather, a once-wealthy man now reduced to the post of steward. Evelyn is still grieving her father’s death and her mother’s abandonment when a passing ship is dashed against the rocks.
Liam Twethewey is a mere two and twenty when he inherits Wyndcliff Estate from his great uncle. His optimistic plans to employ the estate’s tenants meets unexpected resistance, and rumors of smuggling and illegal activity challenge his newfound authority.
Brought together by troubling questions surrounding the shipwreck, Evelyn and Liam uncover even darker mysteries shrouding the estate. But as they untangle truth from deception, their loyalties separate them—and their budding love might not be strong enough to overcome the distance.
