Molly McKenzie's peaceful world is shattered one summer evening in 1935 when gangsters kill her parents while robbing their country store. Hod Dolan, the federal agent sent to investigate the crime, suggests a plan to use Molly as bait to trap the gunmen. While Hod knows the plan threatens all of their lives, he doesn't know that protecting Molly will endanger his heart. Drawn to the lovely young woman at first sight, Hod finds himself falling deeply in love with her. Molly, however, is still struggling to deal with the violent death of her parents and is wary of loving a man whose occupation is fraught with danger. Bound together by their mutual determination to bring her parents' killers to justice, the two begin to forge a relationship, but neither of them knows yet of another threat to their lives that is darker, more sinister, and much closer to home.
With Song is the second in a trilogy by Garlock that began with her bestselling novel, With Hope. Set in the rural Midwest during the dangerous and fascinating 1930s, these novels offer an intriguing look at life during the Dust Bowl years--and they ring with authenticity. Hod and Molly are strong, honorable, and courageous characters whose story is balanced by colorful secondary characters and a well-developed plot, making Garlock's latest offering a satisfying read. --Lois Faye Dyer
