Sweeter Than Birdsong Blog Tour

In this second in the award-winning Saddler's Legacy series, Rosslyn Elliott has written a stirring novel of hope and faith inspired by real historical people and events. With Ben Hanby, a genius composer, Kate Winter, one of the first female college graduates in America, and John Parker, an ex-slave who risked his life time and again to help fugitive slaves, Sweeter than Birdsong is full of real heroes to inspire us. "I hope readers will find a renewed sense of strength in their own lives," says Elliott, "knowing that change is possible, and our efforts matter. I want them to remember these unique, brave people in history who left us a shining example of what it means to live out one's beliefs with passion and commitment."



My Thoughts on Sweeter than Birdsong:
I was a big fan of Rosslyn Elliott's first book in the Saddler's Legacy Series.  What I am most taken with in the Saddler's Legacy series is that the author bases her books on real people.  It makes the story so much fuller to know that these events actually happened in real life.  I loved the main character, Kate.  It was interesting to read about a young woman who is painfully shy and not some "headstrong abnormal for the time period girl."  Although her personality is not the norm- it is also not the norm for Christian fiction.

I loved that the Hanby's are continuing through the series- I loved reading about them in the first book, and it was a joy to see how their lives progressed after that book ended.  Rosslyn Elliot is an incredibly gifted writer and I look forward to reading anything she writes in the future.  She has an incredible way of writing characters- they aren't perfect and you really "feel" for them.  You will want to pick up this book- it is a great second book in an oustanding series!

  1. Thank you so much for this encouraging review! This is one of those "make my whole week" type of reactions. I really appreciate the time you took to read the novel. If you haven't already done so, I would be grateful if you posted this review on Amazon. Beginning authors face a very challenging situation now, because in this economy, many readers are reluctant to take a chance on a new writer. Positive reviews help them feel more comfortable with the risk.
