Governess Of Penwythe Hall
In the first of a new series from beloved Regency romance author, Sarah Ladd, Delia, a governess to five recently orphaned children, would risk anything to protect them . . . even her heart.
After being blamed for her husband’s death, Delia Lambourne wants to disappear. Alone and shunned, she sets aside her dream of opening a small school and accepts the position of a governess. For several years she cares for five children, but when both parents die and leave the children orphans, Delia is determined to honor her late employer’s last request and stay with the children as they move to their uncle’s home, despite the mystery surrounding their inheritance.
Landowner Nicholas Trethewey’s focus is razor sharp. In a county where people are starving, he is determined to help his tenants modernize their farming techniques and revive the surrounding orchards to rejuvenate the once-flourishing cider industry. Once he marries his fiance, the daughter of a powerful landowner, there will be no limit to what he can accomplish. But when he receives word that he’s been named guardian to his deceased brother’s five children, his carefully laid plans shatter.
Determined to comfort the grieving children and give them a sense of normalcy, Delia will do what is necessary to see that the children’s needs are met-even if it means standing up to the new guardian. As she spends more time with Mr. Trethewey, however, she begins to understand him more. When questions over the children’s inheritance arise, arguments create a rift in the budding friendship.
Despite their differences, Delia and Nicholas come together to fight for their relationship and their family. While learning the true meaning of family and love, the couple must lean on their faith, their wits, and each other to overcome the secrets from their past and solve the mysteries surrounding the children’s father’s legacy.

Mothers And Daughters Of The Bible Speak$26.99Add to cart
God always keeps His promises, but not always in the way we expect….
“Have faith” is a phrase we hear all the time. But what does it actually look like to live it out? In The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak, Shannon Bream examines the lives of biblical women to see how God’s plans can turn our worlds upside down. She tells the story of Jochebed, a mother who took enormous risks to protect her son, Moses, from Pharaoh. Could Jochebed have imagined that God’s actual design for her son involved flight into exile and danger? And yet this was all part of the master plan to deliver Israel from slavery. Another biblical mother, Rebekah, made terrible choices in an attempt to ensure her son’s place in history. And a daughter, Michal, struggled to keep her faithless father, Saul, from sin, while battling pride in herself.
Through these stories, Shannon explains the intimate connection between faith and family–and how God’s unexpected agenda can redefine the way we think about family. Not all of these mothers and daughters in the Bible were paragons of virtue. Like us, they were human beings who faltered and struggled to do their best. While some heard God’s voice, others chose their own paths. Through the lens of their imperfections, we can see how God used their stories to bring about His divine plans. He’s still doing the same work in our lives today.
The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak shows that faith is more often a twisting road than a straight line. Yet, as the stories of biblical families attest, at the end of these journeys lies greater peace and joy than we could ever imagine.
