Book description: Sadie Wagner has always been devoted to her family. So when her stepfather is injured and can't work, she decides to leave home and accept a position as a clerk at the mercantile in Goldtree, Kansas. Goldtree also offers the opportunity to use her God-given singing talent-though the promised opera house is far different from what she imagined. With her family needing every cent she can provide, Sadie will do anything to keep her job.
Thad McKane comes to Goldtree to investigate reports of a boot-legging operation. Once he earns enough money from the sheriff work, he plans to use it to pay for his training to become a minister.
Thad is immediately drawn to the lovely young singer who performs in Asa Baxter's unusual opera house. but when he hears her practicing bawdy tunes, he wonders if she's far less innocent than she seems. And when Sadie appears to be part of the very crimes Thad has come to investigate, is there any hope the love blossoming between them will survive?
My review: I enjoyed reading Song of My Heart by Kim Vogel Sawyer. The plot was a bit unusual for the time period but written in such a way that made it seem plausible. I especially enjoyed the two sisters and loved the humor that they added to the story. This is an easy book to read with no surprise twists. If you are looking for a little bit of humor, a little bit of suspense, and a few life lessons, then this is a book you will enjoy. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
