Sadie Wagner is devoted to her family and determined to help them in any way she can, especially since her step-father’s accident has left the family is desperate financial straits. Jobs for women aren’t easy to find in 1895 and when her cousin finds a place for her in a mercantile it seems like an answer to prayer. As an added bonus, there is a new music hall opening up and she may be able to use her singing gift to help even more, but she quickly finds out that everything is not quite what it seems.
“Song of My Heart” was a nice light read, perfect for a rainy afternoon or a long plane flight (which is where I read it.) The characters aren’t new (innocent girl, deceptive bully of a bad guy, rejected suitor) but they are well-written and engaging. The mercantile owners were my special favorites. The setting is well done, you can almost feel the dry, dusty Kansas air as you’re reading.
This is the kind of nice, light, well-written romance that you can pass on to your teenage daughter without blushing. I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys the romance genre and maybe even a few who don’t!
