Sweeter than Birdsong is an historical fiction novel that speaks of hope and faith that is inspired by real people and events. A good book to read. It speaks to hard life circumstances, of people making difficult choices, of young men and women maturing into their faith and God's calling upon their lives, and more.
The book was well written, I could quite well imagine what life was like in those days, from higher class society, to the poorer of society. The working men and women of those days as well as the restraints placed upon them by who they were or wanted to be in life. Be sure to reading the closing remarks as it explains what happened in real life and how characters were modified (or not modified) to fit the books storyline. I always find it helpful when authors do that.
I would enjoy reading more novels written by the author Rosslyn Elliott.
