Song of My Heart By: Kim Vogel Sawyer

    Sadie Wagner has moved to Goldtree for prospective employment.  Her Papa, who was in a mining accident and unable to work, cannot support their family of eight.  Sadie being the eldest of her siblings must take on the responsibility of being the sole bread winner for her family.

    Thad McKane was called to Goldtree to serve as a lawman in the tiny town.  But he doesn't plan on being sheriff for long.  Nope.  As soon as he figures out who is behind the illegal bootlegging scheme in Goldtree, Kansas he will use his wages to learn how to become a minister and clear his name of its sour reputation.

    You don't come across to many stories that can suck you in, entirely mind and body, like Song of My Heart.  Kim Vogel Sawyer can only be described as nothing less than talented.  I was transported to Goldtree, Kansas, the year 1895.  My ears ached from the double blast of screeching voices coming from the Baxter twins every time they spoke.  I could literally smell the succulent aromas of comfort food wafting out from Cora's Diner, all the while feeling the grittiness of dust and dirt as it floated in the wind, behind wagons and pedestrians alike, throughout town.

    Song of My Heart is a must read.  It touches your soul.  I give it a solid 9 out of 10 stars.  One point shy of perfect because the beginning had a slow start.  This is the second novel I've read from Mrs. Sawyer and neither were a disappointment!

I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

  1. What a fantastic review! I haven't read this one- but it sounds like a HF that shouldn't be missed. I enjoyed your honest review and like knowing that the beginning is slow, but then things will pick up! Thanks for sharing. :)
