Sweeter Than Birdsong is book two in The Saddler Legacy. I must admit it took me a while to get into this book (who knows, maybe it was me--I often read in drips and drabs because of my busy schedule), but once I was hooked the characters, story and amazing writing captivated me.
It's a wonderful read . . . if you like history, romance and vivid writing. The series is a work of fiction but is inspired by a real family--the Hanby family, who are to this day the most celebrated citizens of Westerville, Ohio.
Last year I read Rosslyn's debut novel, Fairer Than Morning, and was hooked on her writing. I'm a fan who can't wait for her next book.
Rosslyn writes fabulous fiction. I marvel as I read. One of the things I love about her books is that I get a history lesson while I'm carried along on a fictional ride about people who are not cookie-cutter images of who we might expect them to be. Rosslyn does her homework, creating real people, situations and story.
Rosslyn is on my list of favorite authors. If you'd like a good read and want to learn more about American history make sure to read her books.
I recommend that you begin with the first book in The Saddler's Legacy, Fairer Than Morning, another fabulous story. However, you don't have to begin with book one because each book stands on its own.
If you like a good read and want to learn more about American history make sure to read Rosslyn's books.
