Freedom's Song by Kim Vogel Sawyer

 Indentured servant Fanny Beck has been forced to sing for riverboat passengers since she was a girl. All she wants is to live a quiet, humble life with her family as soon as her seven-year contract is over. So when she discovers that the captain has no intention of releasing her, she seizes a sudden opportunity to escape—an impulse that leads Fanny to a group of enslaved people who are on their own dangerous quest for liberty. . . .

Widower Walter Kuhn is overwhelmed by his responsibilities to his farm and young daughter, and now his mail-order bride hasn’t arrived. Could a beautiful stranger seeking work be the answer to his prayers? . . .
After the star performer of the River Peacock is presumed drowned, Sloan Kirkpatrick, the riverboat’s captain, sets off to find her replacement. However, his journey will bring him face to face with his own past—and a deeper understanding of what it truly means to be free. . . . 

Uplifting, inspiring, and grounded in biblical truth, Freedom’s Song is a story for every reader who has longed for physical, emotional, or spiritual delivery.

My Review

When I saw a book by Kim Vogel Sawyer, well, I new I would not be disappointed and it was a page turner.

This is a beautifully written Christian story, and you are about to embark on an amazing journey through the words of the author!

I can't even imagine the life Fanny had as a child, indentured from Scotland to sing on a Riverboat on the Mississippi, all to bring her family to this country. When she learns that she will not be let go after the seven years, she plans to leave, but fate, or God puts his hand on her, and what a adventure she is about to begin, and we are there to see whom God puts in her path.

I loved how her owner, on her trail, he wants another nightingale to entertain his passengers and bring him more money, but we get to see how God works on him.

What a great read to get lost in, I for one really didn't want it to end!
