Fiction. Romance. Christian Fiction. Historical Fiction. HTML:

In Regency England, one letter will alter a young woman's fate when it summons her to Briarton Park??an ancient estate that holds the secrets of her past and the keys to her future.

Cassandra Hale grew up knowing little about her parentage, and she had made peace with the fact that she never would. But her world shifts when a shocking deathbed confession reveals a two-year-old letter from Mr. Clark, the master of Briarton Park, with hints to her family's identity. Stung by betrayal, Cassandra travels to the village of Anston only to learn Mr. Clark has since passed away.

James Warrington is a widower and the new master of Briarton Park, where he lives with his two young daughters, his sister, and his mother-in-law. When Cassandra appears at his doorstep with a letter from the previous owner and then proceeds to assist his family in an unexpected way, he is honor bound to help uncover the answers she seeks.

The more time Cassandra spends in Anston, the more she begins to suspect not everything??or everyone??is as they seem. As details emerge, the danger surrounding her intensifies. Using wit and intuition, she must navigate the treacherous landscapes between truth and rumor and between loyalty and deception if she is to uncover the realities of her past and find the place her heart can finally call home.

Sarah Ladd's latest Regency romance, first in the new Houses of Yorkshire series, combines mystery and intrigue with the best of historical storytelling.

Praise for The Letter from Briarton Park:

"The swoon-worthy romance of Jane Austen meets the suspense of Charlotte Bronte in Sarah Ladd's enthralling The Letter from Briarton Park. As Cassandra navigates the mystery of her own life, it is absolutely clear that family??either of blood or heart??are where she, and we, ultimately find our home." ??Joy Callaway, international bestselling author of The Fifth Avenue Artists Society and The Greenbrier Resort

    I really enjoyed this book! I loved the main character, Cassandra and found myself cheering her on throughout the book. There was secrets, elements of danger and romance!
    Cassandra has grown up at a girl's school knowing nothing about her parents. At the deathbed of her mentor she is given a letter that eludes to her parentage. She embarks on a journey to find a Mr Clark only to find out that he has passed away. Through many twists and turns she finds the truth and true love! A must read! ( )

    I enjoyed this book for the most part. Other than Cassandra and James getting together in the end, I didn't think it was as predictable as other reviewers. The book is classified as "Christian Fiction," but other than the characters attending church and doing charity work, it was light in that area. ( )

    There was some gothic vibes, but really this was a Regency romance that focused on uncovering family secrets and trying to find a place in the world. Cassandra Hale grew up never knowing her parents, but knowing that she was valued as a pupil and then a teacher in her girl's school. When her mentor confesses on her deathbed that she knew who her parents were and had withheld a letter with information to her past, Cassandra is incensed. How could she hide that from her?! The letter is from Briarton Park and states that the sender would like to talk about her past. When Cassandra arrives she discovers that the sender of the letter and owner of the estate has been dead for two years. But at least she knows she is closer to answers. The Vicar of the town is most attentive to her and wants to help her uncover her past, as is the current occupant of Briarton Park, a widower with two beautiful children. Is romance on the horizon and if so, with whom? A solid inspirational read. ( )

    A young woman named Cassandra is shocked when she receives a letter hinting at her true identity. She travels to an estate named Briarton Park in order to speak to the letter's author and find out the truth about her parentage. She finds few answers as the writer of the letter is deceased but she does get some clues as to people she may be able to talk to for more information. Since she is without a position she decides to stay in the area and continue her search. She also makes the acquaintance of James Warrington, the new tenant of Briarton Park as well as the local Vicar. As events unfold past mysteries and current problems come to light, romances develop, and family relationships are mended.
    This was a delightful read for those who enjoy Regency romance, especially if they appreciate a dash of mystery. ( )

    The Letter From Briarton Park was a light, easy historical mystery. This book was a mix between some light romance, family secrets, and a murder mystery, and while I enjoyed it, I did find it predictable and felt that really nothing new happened in this book.

    Cassandra was a fairly strong woman and I enjoyed her search for her family's identity. She was a bit trusting of others, believing they all had her best interests at heart, but her sheltered upbringing hadn't really taught her how to be wary of people. James was a lonely widower with a deep sense of family and I liked how he interacted with his daughters and his sister. He had nothing but patience with his demanding mother-in-law as well. I did feel like all of the characters were stereotypical, including the antagonists, and I while I enjoyed them, I didn't feel particularly empathetic towards any of them and I didn't really notice any development in them throughout the story. They just were.

    The plot was fairly predictable, with Cassandra discovering a letter written to her with information about her family. It was fairly easy to figure out what that information was and who her father was, but I did think the search was interesting. I like this kind of intrigue so that part of the story was something I enjoyed, even if the story was more about telling and explaining than about figuring it out. And while I really liked James, I didn't really buy into their relationship as the chemistry simply wasn't there. You can't build a relationship simply on shared experiences over a secret and that's what I felt this was. To be honest, I kind of liked the mom-in-law as she seemed to see clearly the situation that actually existed during this time period.

    Verdict
    The Letter from Briarton Park was a fairly predictable read. I did enjoy the mystery, but thought the characters were a bit shallow and one-dimensional. There were hints of Gothic overtones, but the plot focused more around Mr. North and James and their pursuit of Cassandra as well as the mystery of Cassandra's parentage without going too deeply into any of it, so it felt fairly superficial. I did like the author's writing style, so I will try another book in the future; if you are looking for a light, fluffy read, you may enjoy this one. ( )
