From the Author
This could be a long story, so sometime I'll tell the whole thing. For now, let's say I wanted to explore race, education, and freedom. Let's say I wanted to explore how someone might feel if they were taken for the wrong race. Or perhaps someone who wasn't sure what race he was. --This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.

There were quite a few editorial/grammatical issues, but I was so engrossed in the story that I could read right over them.. a rarity for me. I wish the book had gone just a little farther in the story line, and I wish the song writing element had been developed more. Maybe there will be a sequel??
I highly recommend this book for adult readers who enjoy a good drama.
The book gripped me from the first chapter. I started reading it on the bus ride to work and for the first time ever missed getting off at my bus stop, I was so engrossed. Persun's voice reads like a memoir of the time, so much so that I often forgot that I was reading fiction. Persun's knowledge of the setting (rural Pennsylvania) and the time period rang uncannily true and I was carried through the story with a deep compassion for the characters and the land through which they travelled. I read the concluding chapter a few days after I started, this time on the bus ride home, and would have missed my stop again had my wife not shaken me from my reading trance.
If you like historical fiction in general, and Civil War-era stories in particular, this book deserves a place in your library.
What a storyteller! I kept reading far into the night because I couldn't put it down. Every chapter ends making you want to start the following one to see what is going to happen next.
Sweet Song is rich with detail, the author has researched well. Terry Persun writes in such an insightful way that it was much more than just a story to me. I found myself thinking that if Leon, who had to struggle against enormous odds, didn't give up, how much more then, should I, with an "easy" life, have a good attitude in all the challenges I encounter.
I loved the hero and hope to read more about his life in a future novel.
This is my first Terry Persun novel and I am wondering which one to read next!
