About the book:
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.
McKane comes to Goldtree at the request of the town council. The town has been plagued by bootlegging operations, and Thad believes he can find the culprit.
After he earns enough money doing sheriff work, he wants to use it to pay for his training to become a minister.
Thad is immediately attracted to the beautiful singer who performs in Asa Baxter's unusual opera house, but when he hears her practicing bawdy tunes, he begins to wonder if she's far less innocent than she seems. And when Sadie appears to be part of the very crimes he's come to investigate, is there any hope the love blossoming between them will survive?
MY REVIEW: As a fan of historical fiction, and a huge fan of Kim Vogel Sawyer, I was very excited to have been chosen to read and review this book. This book was not disappointing and met my expectations. We find the main character, Sadie, very likable, dedicated to God and her family, and to the point where she has to wrestle with her conscience about taking on a job that she knew went against her Christian principles and strayed from God, I am not going to give a spoiler, you will have to read for yourself about what happens in that aspect.
And then, of course, there is ,Thad, who more than anything feels a calling from God to become a minister, but has to make a living somehow before that dream is realized. He is very likable as well and you become quite attached to the couple.
A great read for those who love romance novels and that are set back in the days of horses and carriages.
