SWEETER THAN BIRDSONG
Elliott’s second Soldier Legacy book contains remarkable storytelling about the abolitionist movement. The author graces the pages with imaginative accounts of people living during these precarious times. She delves deeply and intimately into the lives of the brave people who risk all for the Underground Railroad.
Ben Hanby and Kate Winter share a love for music, but Kate’s mother wants her to marry a rich man. Many young men have expressed an interest in Kate, but she’s shy because of dark family secrets. When Kate joins the Hanbys in their dangerous work on the Underground Railroad, she finds her courage and her voice. Can Ben and Kate find a way to be together in spite of Kate’s family?
