"Shadows of Ladenbrooke Manor by Melanie Dobson is a
beautiful and touching novel filled with family drama, mystery, and
romance. You'll be swept away to the English countryside as you
follow the interwoven stories of three women in one family who
discover the healing power of love and forgiveness. Engaging from
beginning to end!"--Carrie Turansky, award-winning author of The
Daughter of Highland Hall and A Refuge at Highland Hall
"Meticulously researched and beautifully written. Dobson paints two British families, shadowed by lies and betrayals, whose stories intertwine across generations, each desperate for forgiveness and the hope of new life. Riveting and thought provoking, Shadows of Ladenbrooke Manor was impossible to put down."
--Cathy Gohlke, Christy Award-winning author of Secrets She Kept and Saving Amelie
An old, cherished house is like the human heart, we keep treasures safely tucked within: some conquests we proudly display, some treasures we put behind glass, some secrets we hide from sight, our own and others'. In Shadows of Ladenbrook Manor, Ms. Dobson skillfully plaits the complex strands of life: golden and dark, truth and deception, love and loss into an engaging, multi-generational story of heartache and ultimate, unexpected redemption. Any reader might both lose and find herself between the covers of this compelling novel.--Sandra Byrd, author of Mist of Midnight
