#TuesdayTreasure: Special Guest Post by Sarah Ladd

Good Morning Friends and Welcome!

Today I'm very pleased to bring you a guest post by best selling author, Sarah Ladd.....

Thank you for inviting me to share a “Tuesday Treasure”!

I am a writer, so it probably comes as no surprise that I LOVE BOOKS! I enjoy my e-reader, don’t get me wrong, but there is nothing quite like holding a physical book in your hands.

I have been gathering and collecting books as long as I can remember, so I thought I would take this opportunity to share a little bit about one particular book that I treasure — my copy of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women.
This book belonged to my mother, and she passed it along to me when I was in elementary school. As you can see from the picture, it is worn and the spine is a little torn, but these are signs of a book that has been read many times over, and it makes me treasure this book all the more. This copy of Little Women is the very first “grown up” book I remember reading — I read it for the first time while on a family vacation, and it affected me in a way that no book ever really has. I devoured it, every single page, and have read it several times over. 
Just looking at this book brings a smile to my face, but this book has a secret — it is illustrated! Throughout the book there are both color and black and white illustrations by the artist Louis Jambor. As a child, the graphics captured my imagination and brought the story to life all the more.  

This particular book was published in 1947 by Grosset & Dunlap Publishers, and it is part of their Illustration Junior Library collection.

Thank you for letting me share my “Tuesday Treasure” with you.  What is YOUR book treasure?

Sarah E. Ladd has always loved the Regency period — the clothes, the music, the literature and the art. A college trip to England and Scotland confirmed her interest in the time period and gave her idea of what life would’ve looked like in that era. However, it wasn’t until 2010 that she started writing seriously. Her latest release, A Lady at Willowgrove Hall is the third and final release in the Whispers on the Moors series. To keep up with Sarah E.
