In case you haven’t noticed, I love reading-especially historical fiction. My very favorite is when books are in a series–I love stories that are linked and chances to get to know the characters and their lives beyond just the one book. Plus it gives you something to look forward to when you have to draw to the end of a story! So when I read and reviewed Fairer Than Morning I have been looking forward to this book ever since!
Rosslyn Elliott has really come into her own in this book! Although I loved the depth and intrigue of the first book in the series, I wasn’t overly thrilled with other parts as I mentioned in my review. In this book I found nothing to quibble about! She kept the deep and complex characters, wove an intricate and unique storyline, and kept just the right amount of realism and detail. I enjoyed the complexities in the relationships shown, especially those between Kate and her mother. It was also fun to see the characters from the first book as older adults with children coming into their own.
Yet again I’m left satisfied but can’t wait to read the next book in the series!

In this second in the award-winning Saddler’s Legacy series, Rosslyn Elliott has written a stirring novel of hope and faith inspired by real historical people and events. With Ben Hanby, a genius composer, Kate Winter, one of the first female college graduates in America, and John Parker, an ex-slave who risked his life time and again to help fugitive slaves, Sweeter than Birdsong is full of real heroes to inspire us. “I hope readers will find a renewed sense of strength in their own lives,” says Elliott, “knowing that change is possible, and our efforts matter. I want them to remember these unique, brave people in history who left us a shining example of what it means to live out one’s beliefs with passion and commitment.”
