From the Back Cover
Sadie Wagner has always been devoted to her family. So when her stepfather is injured and can't work, she decides to leave home and accept a position as a clerk at the mercantile in Goldtree, Kansas. Goldtree also offers the opportunity to use her God-given singing talent--though the promised opera house is far different from what she imagined. With her family needing every cent she can provide, Sadie will do anything to keep her job.
Thad McKane comes to Goldtree to investigate reports of a bootlegging operation. Once he earns enough money from the sheriff work, he plans to use it to pay for his training to become a minister.
Thad is immediately drawn to the lovely young singer who performs 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?

Top Customer Reviews
Sadie Wagner came across as a very sweet tempered, gentle, loving girl. Within the first chapter, I was intrigued with her, springing easily to the next chapter to see what would happen to Sadie as she began her new job away from home. And, of course, Thad McKane made the perfect hero to complete this story as the reluctant Sheriff. Can't help but like him!
Song of My Heart weaves in a very intricate and unique plot--complete with underhand dealings, blackmail, illegal liquor, and guilty consciences. And the way Sadie was coerced into wearing the revealing gown and singing those bawdy songs...I was holding my breath for Sadie!
I really liked Sawyer's writing style. It drew me in, putting me right into the little town of Goldtree. And her characters--wow, how much fun they all were. Melva and Shelva were a hoot!
Sometimes, when authors jump between a bunch of character point-of-views, it can get confusing. But Saywer pulls it off no problem in Song of My Heart! I know for a fact that I'm more eager to open her other books in my to-be-read pile. And definitely keeping an eye out for her future books!
I reviewed this book for the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance. Thanks to the publishers, Bethany House, for sending me my review copy. It was not required that I give a positive review, but solely to express my own thoughts and opinions of this book, which I have done.
I've got to start with the secondary characters, Melba, Shelba and Asa have got to be the most outrageous characters - not in a bad way - just in a bit of the ridiculous funny. Get into the way Asa (the villain) thinks and you just might want to chuckle - I did. (wink)
I loved Thad. A strapping hero, but with a heart of gold, though he isn't without his troubles for sure. I love the subtleties of his character, his growth and realization through the course of the story.
You can't get any more emotionally tormented than Sadie. Though I've never been in her kind of situation to need to provide for her family, I could completely understand and feel for that pull toward what's right and what she needs to do.
The ending was definitely my favorite part of the novel. So many parts of the story came together for a well written ending that charmed and entertained this reader.
Reading is all about entertainment and I found it easy and enjoyable to escape for a few hours into "Song of My Heart". It's a delightful read and a ready addition to my collection.
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers through CFBA for my copy to review.
Awkwardness arises between them when it becomes known that Sid has feelings for Sadie that are more than friendship. Sadie doesn't have the same feelings for Sid, though, and when she starts spending time with Thad McKane (the new sheriff), Sid becomes jealous and angry.
Love starts blooming between Sadie and Thad, but will circumstances stand in their way of love?
Pretty much throughout the entire story it was known who the bootlegger was, and the whole bootlegger aspect of the story didn't really interest me.
While I did enjoy most of Song of My Heart's story, it didn't really grab my attention until mid-way to late in the book. I really liked Thad's character and seeing him grow - both in his goals in life and faith.
I loved how grace and mercy was shown (and talked about) in Song of My Heart - that was one of my favorite things in the book.
I would have liked it if there would have been an epilogue telling what certain people thought of a certain thing (not going to say who or what), but maybe there will be a sequel....
Overall, it was a good book that I enjoyed reading. I recommend it if you enjoy historical novels!
