The Weaver’s Daughter

About the Book

Summer 1801

Amberdale, West Riding, Yorkshire, England

Alarm’s menacing sting pricked Kate Dearborne’s consciousness and hurried her steps.

I absolutely adore when an author uses personification well. I have experienced the awful sting of alarm before, and it does actually make your steps quicken. It also makes your blood pressure rise, your heart thump out of your chest, and your palms sweat as you begin to worry like crazy…or maybe that’s just me! LOL!

I’m very excited to begin The Weaver’s Daughter. I have read and loved all of Sarah Ladd’s novels, and I have heard nothing but good things about this story. Can’t wait for my weekend to get here so I can have some reading time!


NOW IT IS YOUR TURN! GRAB THE BOOK YOU ARE CURRENTLY READING, OPEN TO CHAPTER ONE, AND POST THE FIRST SENTENCE (OR SECOND SENTENCE) IN THE COMMENTS BELOW. THEN HEAD ON OVER TO HOARDING BOOKS TO SEE ALL OF THE FLF PAGES THIS WEEK (JUST CLICK ON THE FLF BUTTON BELOW).

    Rise in blood pressure, heart thumping… sounds like me when reading a good suspense lol
    The book I’m sharing on my blog is Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate, but the book I’ll share here is the one I am currently reading called Chateau of Secrets by Melanie Dobson: “Candlelight flickered on the medieval walls as Gisele Duchant stepped into the warmth of the nave.” Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂

    It certainly can feel like a physical sting at times!

    I’m featuring ‘No Less Days’ by Amanda G. Stevens on my blog today, but right now I’m reading ‘Presumption and Partiality’ by Rebekah Jones–a Pride & Prejudice retelling set in 1930s Arizona!

    The sun beat down cheerfully on that last day of August in the year 1932.

    Have a great weekend 🙂

    Lovely cover, and yes, great description!

    I’m featuring As Bright as Heaven on my blog today, but I’ll share the first line from another on my TBR pile here, Quo Vadis: “Petronius woke only about midday, and as usual greatly wearied.”

    This was another winner from Sarah Ladd (I listened to it as my first audio book and am now hooked on audio books).

    My TBR pile includes The Theory of Happily Ever After by Kristin Billerbeck. The first line: “Life is filled with irony.”

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    I’m sure you’ll love the story! Have a wonderful weekend 🙂
    Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Becky Wade’s Falling for You. I’ll share with you here the first line from a book I recently read and enjoyed “Amongst the Roses” by Meghan M. Gorecki
    “Papa’s Home!” A nameless shiver of dread worked its way up Margaret Bryant’s spine, causing her fingers to shake as she checked the chatelaine watch at her waist.”

    Happy Friday! What a gorgeous cover! I can’t wait to read it!!

    My FLF comes from a book I’m going to be reading shortly, The Good Daughter by Diane Chamberlain…….

    No one wanted to work with the man in the wheelchair . “There’s something strange about that guy,” one of my fellow students warned me in the hall outside the PT ward. “If they try to assign you to him, say no.”

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!📚😀

    Oh, I love your description! I’m hoping to read Sarah Ladd’s book soon.

    I’m featuring “Beneath a Prairie Moon” by Kim Vogel Sawyer on the blog today, but I’m going to share about the book I’m currently reading called “The Story Peddler” by Lindsay A. Franklin.

    Colored ribbons of light poured from my fingers. One strand broke free and soared above the crowd’s head, glowing golden in the afternoon sun.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading! 🙂

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Miss Wilton’s Waltz by Josi S. Kilpack, which will be released May 1st:

    “As a vicar’s daughter, Lenora knew that doing the right thing was not always easy, in fact it was rarely so.”

    My first lines come from Shutdown Player by Jami Davenport.

    “Praying had never done Stephanie Clarke any good, but she did it anyway.”

    I’m featuring lines from Victoria Danann’s Witch Wants Forever on my blog if you’d like to stop by.

    I’m sharing from my current read, The Backcountry Brides Romance Collection from Barbour Books, on my blog today. So here is the first line from the prologue of a book I plan to read soon, The Lost Castle by Kristy Cambron:

    “Crumbling walls were rare, beautiful things.”

    Have a great weekend!
