Audio Spotlight & Giveaway: A Stranger at Fellsworth by Sarah Ladd, Treasures of Surrey Book 3



Today, I'm happy to share a special audioclip of Sarah E. Ladd's latest release, the third book in the Treasures of Surrey series, A Stranger at Fellsworth. First, here's a bit about Sarah and A Stranger at Fellsworth before we jump into the audioclip.  Check it out and you can't wait to get your hands on this book! (And don't forget the giveaway!!)


Sarah E. Ladd has always loved the Regency period — the clothes, the music, the literature and the art.

A college trip to England and Scotland confirmed her interest in the time period and gave her idea of what life would’ve looked like in era.

 It wasn’t until 2010 that Ladd began writing seriously. Shortly after, Ladd released the first book in the Whispers on the Moors series.

Book one of the series, The Heiress of Winterwood, was the recipient of the 2011 Association of Christian Fiction Writers Genesis Award for historical romance. Ladd also has more than ten years of marketing experience. She holds degrees in public relations and marketing and lives in Indiana with her family and spunky Golden Retriever.

Her NEW series, Treasures of Surrey, includes The Curiosity Keeper, Dawn at Emberwidle and her just released, A Stranger at Fellsworth.

Title:  A Stranger at Fellsworth
Series: Treasures of Surrey
Author: Sarah E. Ladd
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date:  May 16, 2017
Genre: Historical Fiction

Could losing everything be the best thing to happen to Annabelle Thorley?

In the fallout of her deceased father’s financial ruin, Annabelle’s prospects are looking bleak. Her fiancé has called off their betrothal, and now she remains at the mercy of her controlling and often cruel brother. Annabelle soon faces the fact that her only hope for a better life is to do the unthinkable and run away to Fellsworth, the home of her long-estranged aunt and uncle, where a teaching position awaits her. Working for a wage for the first time in her life forces Annabelle to adapt to often unpleasant situations as friendships and roles she’s taken for granted are called into question.

Owen Locke is unswerving in his commitments. As a widower and father, he is fiercely protective of his only daughter. As an industrious gamekeeper, he is intent on keeping poachers at bay even though his ambition has always been to eventually purchase land that he can call his own. When a chance encounter introduces him to the lovely Annabelle Thorley, his steady life is shaken. For the first time since his wife’s tragic death, Owen begins to dream of a second chance at love.

As Owen and Annabelle grow closer, ominous forces threaten the peace they thought they’d found. Poachers, mysterious strangers, and murderers converge at Fellsworth, forcing Annabelle and Owen to a test of fortitude and bravery to stop the shadow of the past from ruining their hopes for the future.

  1. Dawn at Emberwilde is the only one I have. I enjoy historical fiction for a change of pace every now and then. Some of the best ones I've read are by Jody Hedlund.

  5. I've read most of Sarah Ladd's books and loved them. I haven't read this one yet, but I'm looking forward to it. The audio clip is wonderful. I have a hard time listening to audio books, though. I get too distracted.

    1. Hahah. Winnie. I was like that too! The only "chore" I can do while listening is ironing, but it does take me double the time to iron! Now, just during commuting time.

  6. I haven't read any of Sarah's books yet, but this one sounds very interesting and I plan on reading it even if I don't win. I do have several of her books on my TBR list, though. My favorite historical romance author is Lauraine Snelling. She started me on the path to historical, christian romance. Thanks for the giveaway and good luck everyone.

  7. The audio sounds pretty good I had listened to it the other day Sarah's FB party yesterday. I have not read any of Sarah's books yet but I do have one on my to be read list "The Headmistress of Rosemere". And as far as my favorite historical writer it would have to Julie Klassen( because she writes really close to Jane Austen with mystery mixed in).

      And I totally agree about the narrator's voice! That accent, perfect for this story.

  15. I think I've only read one of the earlier books by Sarah. I do read historical fiction - I've enjoyed Cathy Gohlke's and Kristy Cambron's books. For some reason, WW II books intrigue me.

    1. I still haven't had the pleasure of reading Cathy's, but LOVE Kristy's books, at least the ones I've read. Lately, I've been on this WWII book craze too.. heheh

  20. I have read all of Sarah's books so far and can't wait to read this one! I can't say I had a favorite because I truly have loved the plots and characters in each one (thus why I have read all her books). The audio clip was fun, and I think the British accent was a great touch. Honestly I still like reading books more though so audio books aren't really my thing, even though so many people out there prefer them.

  21. Thanks for being a part of the tour! I loved getting to hear a bit of the audiobook.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Okay, I must be weird. I don't much care for the audiobooks, lol. I think that I'd rather read at my own tempo and create my own voices for the characters.

    I haven't read any of Sarah's books yet, but many of them are in my TBR pile!

    1. I was like that too with the audiobook, but it grows on you, especially with a great narrator!

  23. I don't know how I missed this post. I don't usually listen to audio books. I absorb more when I actually read. The narrator is very good, though.

  24. Never have listened to an audio clip of a book before, interesting. Have not read thi one yet have read several and will read this one.

  25. I haven't read Sarah's books and I look forward to reading this book. I enjoy the historical biblical fiction books by Connilyn Cossette and I also enjoy Regina Jennings.
