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."
This is a Historical Novel, and while it's a good book, it does take a bit of reading to get into it, I felt as though it started a little slow. Based on a true story, makes you slip into the reality of the story quite easily, and the suspense makes it a little juicy! If you enjoy Historical settings, I think you'll enjoy this book.
