Blog Tour: Song of My Heart (Review)

Kim Vogel Sawyer's newest release weaves together a story featuring a young woman devoted to her family and a young man who is convinced that his life's calling is to enter the ministry - even while he serves as a sheriff.

The story, set in the small town of Goldtree, Kansas, dives into Sadie's life and what happened when her work turns out to be something different than she expected. It also explores Thad's desire to be a minister and if it is truly a calling from God or a desire fueled by guilt.

This is a good, simple read. If you like historical novels set during the "old west" time period, then you will enjoy this book. Vogel Sawyer's words create vivid pictures of life in Kansas in the late 1800s.

Song of My Heart is a well written novel with several layers. The problems faced by the characters may be set in the 1890s, but in reality, the issues translate to 2012 with ease - especially when Thad struggles with his calling into the ministry and Sadie makes employment choices in order to support her family.

In all, I give this novel a three out of five. If you are looking for a nice read for Spring Break or a vacation, then this will fit the bill.

About The Book:
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.

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?
