Sweeter Than Birdsong by Rosslyn Elliott is a lovely coming of age story. There are historical references to a time when real people with integrity helped fellow human beings under dangerous circumstances; the Underground Railroad. The author does a wonderful job providing the reader with a glimpse into what it means to be courageous.
The story unfolds layer by layer and is a good mix of adventure and love. The author does a wonderful job introducing us to the day to day lives of those living in Westerville, Ohio. You feel you have been transported to a different place and time.
I enjoyed reading this novel. It touched my heart and left me wishing for more.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
