A Stranger at Fellsworth is the third book in the Treasures of Surrey series, by Sarah E. Ladd. You won’t feel lost if you have not read the previous two books.
This is a nicely paced, clean regency romance with a nice suspenseful touch and underlying themes of the importance of faith and forgiveness.
Several unanswered questions might exist in her life at the present, but one thing she knew for certain: she would not be wearing the green gown to the Baldwins’ ball. ~excerpt
As with many of Ms. Ladd’s characters, Annabelle Thorley is multi-layered and holds strength and bravery she didn’t realize she had. By disguising her true identity, she discovers who she really is.
This is a lovely, moving read, with a mixture of characters you’ll love and those you won’t, and a stimulating 1819 historical England setting. As someone who doesn’t normally read regency romance, I can say this held my interest and inspired me to read more in this genre.
It was highly improper for her, a lady, to speak with a strange man on the street, regardless of the service he provided. But she had to at least know something about him.. ~excerpt
I love the cover art, the storyline, and Ms. Ladd’s writing style.

First Line (Chapter One): Annabelle gasped at the sight that met her eye as she passed the parlor door.
