“Song of My Heart” by Kim Vogel Sawyer

on March 8, 2012

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 Opinion:


I’ve had the pleasure of reading Kim’s Amish books before and this one is the same, it was my pleasure to read her newest, Song of My Heart.  At first I had a hard time getting into the book, not because of her writing but because I’m so used to Amish fiction and putting it together with her that it took me a chapter or two to recognize that I wasn’t reading another great Amish novel from Kim but historical fiction that is awesome.  Kim Vogel Sawyer has yet again won readers with her in depth characters and twisting plot line and leaves you wanting more.


As I got to know Sadie Wagner and the townspeople of Goldtree, Kansas I felt that I could sense the fear that had come to settle upon Sadie – without giving the story away, you’ll be cheering for Sadie and even though she’s a fictional character maybe even saying a prayer for her or the one who is a real life Sadie to you.  What I liked was even though it’s a fictional book, it felt real, as in the fact that each of us knows someone (maybe it’s ourselves) who is struggling with how to deal with something in their life and it just may give you a way to get out or help someone, it’s truly inspirational.
