Summary:

Travel back to Regency England and the Industrial Revolution with Sarah Ladd as she weaves the tale of a woman torn between her father's stubborn hold on the past and her dreams for the fast-approaching future ... Kate Hathaway comes from a long line ofhandloom weavers. With the Industrial Revolution in full swing, Yorkshire's textile industry is changing, but Kate's father, a successful but feared clothier, rejects technological advances. With the aid of fellow artisans, he will do anything to keep outsiders-and mechanical looms-out of their small village of Ambledale. With his military days behind him, Nicholas Stockton returns home to England and expects to take his place in the family business-a textile mill in Ambledale. But when his grandfather dies suddenly and leaves the struggling mill entirely in his care, Nicholas is confronted with the monumental task of righting his grandfather's wrongs, especially when it comes to the manner in which the mill workers have been treated. Kate is wary of thehandsome man now running the Stockton Mill, but after spending time with him in various social settings and watching him advocate for the less fortunate, she warms to him. Nicholas, too, has been warned that the Hathaways are a dangerous family, but afterwitnessing Kate's kindness, his opinion changes. As her father becomes increasingly desperate, Kate faces the impossible choice: preserve her father's legacy and sacrifice her own dreams, or put her fate in the hands of a man she barely knows and fight for the future she has come to believe in. With courage and God's guidance, Kate steps into the future and discovers a love she never knew possible.
