Song of My Heart takes us to Kansas in the day of prohibition. Sadie needs to provide for her family while her step-father is recovering from a mining accident in Indiana. Cousin Sid encourages Sadie to come to Goldtree, Kansas, to accept a job at the local mercantile. But, it’s the added bonus of being able to sing in the Opera House that convinces Sadie to take the offer. Sadie is happy with her new positions in Goldtree until, Asa, the opera house owner, wants her to sing questionable tunes for a new crowd. Because Sadie doesn’t want to let her family down she feels pressed to do a Asa says.
In the meantime Mayor Hanaman hires Thad, a wanna be preacher, to rouse out the moonshiners before the growing town is brought to ruin. Of course, Sadie and Thad are attracted to one another, but when Thad hears Sadie practicing bawdy tunes and also appears to be involved in the moonshining business, all romancing is cancelled.
Kim Sawyer brings us another good read you won’t want to miss.
