LOVELIER THAN DAYLIGHT
The historical fusion in Elliott’s Sadler’s Legacy book three continues to draw us into the lives she creates, and the era comes alive with fascination for those who want to read about love, faith and drama during the Westerville Whiskey War of 1875. Elliott is able to deliver and entertains history buffs of all ages.
Susanna Hanby is exhausting every lead about the disappearance of her sister, nieces and nephews. She meets a journalist who is looking for award-winning stories about the temperance movement so that he can leave his father’s brewery business and go east to earn his living. Although Susanna’s principles about temperance keep her from seeking his companionship, he has vowed to help her learn the whereabouts of her missing sister and her children. This partnership will make Susanna see another side of Johann Giere. Will she be able to see the plan God has for her life as she lives with the Hanbys of Westerville? Does Johann have the patience and grace to allow Susanna into his family life? (THOMAS NELSON, Nov., 400 pp., $15.99)
