Review:Song of My Heart By Kim Vogel Sawyer

Times are hard right now for most of us. As I'm sure they have been a lot in times gone by. As they were in 1895 for the Sadie Wagner's family. With her step father becoming hurt due to a mining accident there was no one to take care of her and her family. So Sadie's parents begrudgingly promised her if a job opening were to ever become available then she would be more than welcome to try her hand at it to help her family financially. Well Sadie asked the Lord to help with this and he did send her a job or two by the way of her cousin Sid. The only thing was it was in Kansas. Sadie lived in Indiana. But Sadie decided with her parents permission to give it a shot. 
Meanwhile, a man by the name of Thad McKay came into town for a job also. Only his job is to start investigating a bootlegging operation that the Mayor suspects is going on in town.
I think the most refreshing thing about this book is the innocence of Sadie.  I really liked the book. Here is an excerpt from the book.....
Thad is immediately drawn to the lovely young singer who preforms in Asa Baxter's unusual opera house. But when he hears her practicing bawdy tunes, he wonders if she's far less innocent than she seems. And when Sadie appears to be part of the very crimes Thad has come to investigate, is there any hope the love blossoming between them will survive?
