Lovelier Than Daylight is the third book in Rosslyn Elliott's series The Saddler's Legacy. I have had the privilege of reading each of the books in this series. The series is based on the real Hanby Family and this book is based on the Westerville Whiskey War of 1875. The stories are fiction but have historically accurate information in them. I have enjoyed this series from the beginning and Lovelier Than Daylight added to that enjoyment. This is a beautiful story that looks at some intense issues like drinking, domestic abuse, infidelity, and the affects these things have on families especially the children during 1875. This story grabbed me from the start and held me until the end. Lovelier Than Daylight is about Susanna Hanby who is staying in Westerville, Ohio to attend college, the college her family has been part of for many, many years. She is staying with her Aunt Ann and Uncle Will, who are characters who have been a part of this series from the start. On her trip Susanna wants to visit her sister and her children, Susanna finds out that her sister is gone and the children have been put in orphanages. This book takes readers through the struggles of the Hanby's as they try to keep the children together and with family. Susanna is willing to give up school to take care of these children.

Lovelier Than Daylight introduces some new characters and reacquaints readers with some old friends. My favorite characters in this story would have to be Will and Ann Hanby and Johann Giere. The love and strength of these characters have left me with such a good feeling. Rosslyn Elliott writes a beautiful story about this incredible family and the length someone will go for someone they love.

Lovelier than Daylight by Rosslyn Elliot is a well written story that was a neat mix of romance, intrigue, truth and fiction. It is the third book in the The Saddler Legacy Series, but it is not imperative that you read the other two first in order to enjoy this novel. The plot line was interesting and held my attention throughout. The plot started quickly, but then went into a lull as more background information was given about the situation and characters. However, after a few chapters I was captured by the storyline and the characters, and I read well into the night in order to finish the novel. The plot contained a good mesh of themes such as love, overcoming prejudice, suspense, and intrigue. I was completely satisfied with the ending, and I enjoyed how the novel alternated between the perspective of Susanna and Johann.

The characters were well developed, realistic, and captured my affection. Susanna was a character that had her share of both strengths and flaws. She started out extremely prejudiced against Johann and his trade, but the words of Johann, his family, and her aunt caused her to have a better understanding of what God can do with any business and any people. Johann was a truly admirable character whom I really liked. He was kind, compassionate, gentle, and he trusted God and His leading even when he felt like his heart was leading him somewhere else. The supporting characters of Will and Ann Hanby were exceptional, and I was convicted over and over by their wise words.

Overall, I truly enjoyed Lovelier than Daylight, and I would highly recommend that anyone who enjoys historical fiction/romance read the Saddler Legacy Series.

Author Rosslyn Elliott continues to enthrall fans of inspirational historical romance with "Lovelier Than Daylight", the third entry in her "Saddler's Legacy" series. Once again returning to Westerville, Ohio and the Hanby family, the author blends real-life people and events with a compelling story line. When Susanna Hanby heads off to college in 1875, she has no idea of the life-changing events which will soon come to pass. Discovering that her sister Rachel has vanished, she is even more distraught to learn that Rachel's six children have been placed in orphanages. Rachel's alcoholic husband, George Leeds, has allowed all this to happen, and Susanna is determined to discover the truths he tries to hide. Johann Giere is rich, successful and the heir to a thriving German-American brewery in Columbus, Ohio. His family loyalty is conflicted by his desire for a career in journalism and his wish to head East to New York. Westerville is an important center for the temperance movement, and attempts to infuse the area with alcoholic beverages are met with angry rejection which erupts into escalating violence. As Johann begins his work as supplier to a new saloon in Westerville, he and the anti-alcohol Susanna often spar with each other. Despite their obvious differences, an underlying attraction begins to grow. When Johann offers her a way to help Rachel's children, Susanna must look deep into her heart and open her mind to accept a new understanding of what has really occurred. Can she trust her heart and the safety of her family to Johann? Will the truth of Rachel's disappearance ever be revealed? The tumultuous events that actually took place in Westerville, Ohio were called "The Whiskey War", and Rosslyn Elliott has brought to light a fascinating period in American history. I highly recommend the "Saddler's Legacy" series for those who love history, romance, and inspiring human stories.
