   Sweeter Than Birdsong By: Rosslyn Elliott

About the Book:

In this second in the award-winning Saddler’s Legacy series, Rosslyn Elliott has written a stirring novel of hope and faith inspired by real historical people and events. With Ben Hanby, a genius composer, Kate Winter, one of the first female college graduates in America, and John Parker, an ex-slave who risked his life time and again to help fugitive slaves, Sweeter than Birdsong is full of real heroes to inspire us. “I hope readers will find a renewed sense of strength in their own lives,” says Elliott, “knowing that change is possible, and our efforts matter. I want them to remember these unique, brave people in history who left us a shining example of what it means to live out one’s beliefs with passion and commitment.”


Rosslyn Elliott has done it again! With the second book to the Saddler’s Legacy Sweeter than Birdsong will capture your attention and transport you to another time. Elliott knows how to pull you into a story and keep you there and invested in each and every character. She has entwined fiction with history of the Hanby family that will keep you wanting to know the rest of the story.

Sweeter than Morning is the story of Kate Winter who spends her time trying to please her mother and find an escape from her family problems, Kate has always been quiet and shy, when she comes across Ben Hanby, abolitionist with strong speaking and musical skills. An accident brings Ben and Kate together and leaves both questioning their futures and forces Kate to find the courage to speak up.

Kate Winter is a diverse character that you will find yourself relating to her struggles throughout the story. Elliott has once again created a story that will keep you reading from beginning to end.
