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 role as a teacher at the school, a safe yet stifling establishment that would enable her to care for her younger sister Lizzie, who was left in her care after her father’s death.
The unexpected arrival of a 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 rumors and ominous folklore—along with whispers of something far more sinister. 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.

Dawn at Emberwilde by Sara E. Ladd is a delightful historical, faith based romance that was a very relaxing read. I spent a lovely rainy afternoon delving into this book and thoroughly enjoyed it. 

It has an engaging, well developed plot with intriguing characters and moves at a steady pace with a few twists and surprises throughout the story. 

I came away from reading Dawn at Emberwilde relaxed, smiling and with that warm feeling inside of having read a really good romance!

4 Stars!

Thank you to Thomas Nelson and Netgalley for the gift of this book in exchange for an honest review.
