The Thief of Lanwyn Manor

Sarah E. Ladd. Thomas Nelson, $15.99 trade paper (352p) ISBN 978-0-7852-2318-4
Set in Cornwall, England, in the early 1800s, Ladd’s sweeping inspirational romance, second in the Cornwall Novels series (after The Governness of Penwythe Hall), brims with triumph and tragedy. Many young men have gone off to serve in India while others have found work in the mines. Orphaned 19-year-old Julia Twethewey has come to stay with her uncle in the mining town of Goldweth, both to act as companion to her pregnant cousin, Jane, and to recover from a broken heart. Life at Lanwyn Manor, however, is not all it seems. Isaac Blake oversees the family mine owned by his twin brother, Matthew. As the second-born twin, Isaac’s hardly a catch for any marriage-minded lady, as he has no claim to the family business, but he and Julia seem to connect on an elemental level. Matthew, however, sees Julia as his way into profiting from her uncle’s mine. Ladd laces the drama with deep faith elements and fine details of the Regency era, which provide depth beyond the tension of the romance. Fans of Julie Klassen will love this.
