Devoted to her family, Sadie is willing to do what she must to help out even moving away and taking a job. When this opportunity arises Sadie moves to Goldtree to work for two sisters who run a mercantile. However, another opportunity arises as well allowing Sadie to use her talent of singing. When Sadie must do somethings she was not initially prepared to do, she will as she wants to make every penny she can in order to send to her family to help out. Sadie's jobs and actions are placing her in the midst of an investigation of crimes. Thad is investigating the crimes, and a suspect is stealing his heart in the process; is Sadie who she seems to be or is she putting on a front and going to break his heart in the process?
Sawyer's characters are lovable and enjoyable to read about! While reading I was transported to life in Goldtree, Kansas. Thad and Sadie are both doing things they do not necessarily love, but it is ways to make money to help them fulfill their goals, Sadie's being to take care of her family and Thad wanting to become a minister. The interactions between these two characters are fun to read and will have you rooting for them! This is the first book I have read by this author and it is will not be my last! If you enjoy historical fiction, this is a must-read!
