LifeWay’s Novelist of the Month: Sarah Ladd

Get to know a rising author One of my favorite new authors over the last couple of years has been Sarah Ladd.  She is bringing excellent novels set in Regency England to our market.  If you're a fan of Julie Klassen or even our beloved Jane Austen, you'll certainly want to check out Sarah's books. Her newest one, The Curiosity Keeper, is on it's way to LifeWay this week.  "It is not just a ruby, as you say. It is large as a quail’s egg, still untouched and unpolished.
