CFBA Tour Song of My Heart by Kim Sawyer

is introducing
Song of My Heart
Bethany House (February 1, 2012)
Kim Vogel Sawyer


Kim Vogel Sawyer is the author of fifteen novels, including several CBA and ECPA bestsellers. Her books have won the ACFW Book of the Year Award, the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence, and the Inspirational Readers Choice Award. Kim is active in her church, where she leads women's fellowship and participates in both voice and bell choirs. In her spare time, she enjoys drama, quilting, and calligraphy. Kim and her husband, Don, reside in central Kansas, and have three daughters and numerous grandchildren.


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 at the request of the town council. The town has been plagued by bootlegging operations, and Thad believes he can find the culprit. After he earns enough money doing sheriff work, he wants to use it to pay for his training to become a minister.

Thad is immediately attracted to the beautiful singer who performs in Asa Baxter's unusual opera house, but when he hears her practicing bawdy tunes, he begins to wonder if she's far less innocent than she seems. And when Sadie appears to be part of the very crimes he's come to investigate, is there any hope the love blossoming between them will survive?

MY REVIEW-I have long been a fan of Kim Vogel Sawyer. Her books are wonderfully vibrant and alive. They are fascinating historical novels that I really enjoy. This one is no different! My favorite series is the one dealing with the orphans but these are quite good. I especially like how she weaves the scenery and history into the story. Song of My Heart deals with a young lady who is trying to help her family. The step-father is down after a mine accident and the mother is trying her best to care for her family and make money at the same time. When a cousin offers to get a job for the daughter in a different state, she joyfully travels to help out her family. And at this point, it gets very interesting. Enter in a gaggle of wonderful characters and you have a book teeming with witty dialogue and a plot you won't soon forget. A book to pick up and read again and again!!
