Cecily Faire is setting out on her own. After being disowned five years ago over a failed romance Cecily has been making a life for herself without the support of a family, but of friends who have helped to tame her impulsive character and mold her into lady. Little does she know what awaits her at her new post at Willowgrove Hall. Secrets run rampant and everyone is loathe to unveil any of them, even Cecily herself; for her own secrets could be her undoing.
The third installment of the Whispers on the Moors brings us a story of betrayal, forgiveness and the long-term effects bad decisions can have on many lives. A Lady at Willowgrove Hall wasn’t as fast-paced as book two nor quite as interesting. While just about every character did have secrets that were gradually revealed and the backstories explained I felt that the story was very slow. The writing was solid, true, but it was very descriptive – some thing a lot of people like, but I’m not very fond of. Sarah Ladd can paint a very vivid picture of the surroundings so readers will have no trouble picturing things as they happen. In the end if you are considering this book I say go for it.
