Book Review: Lovelier Than Daylight



Title: Lovelier Than Daylight
Author: Rosslyn Elliott
Publisher: Thomas Nelson Publishers
Release Date:11/06/2012





In the third installment of the Saddler’s Legacy series, Susanna Hanby is a young woman with some heavy battles on her hands. Her sister Rachel has vanished leaving her children at an orphanage. Susanna is determined to find a way to take nieces and nephews home with her even if that means abandoning her college plans. In the midst of this personal anguish a new saloon has opened in town causing a violent uproar from the God-fearing residents of the little town of Westerville, Ohio and a young man by the name of Johann Giere-the son of a lager brewer-threatens Susanna’s convictions.

Though a little slow going at first, the Lovelier Than Daylight is a unique tale that soon picks up momentum and the reader’s interest. The topic of alcohol abuse is handled well with the historical elements leading up to the Temperance Movement in the United States. The character of Susanna is often easy to relate to and Johann is very likeable. Overall, Ms Elliott creates an interesting story with dynamic characters and a reasonably happy ending.  

Disclosure in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : This book was presented to me free of charge by Thomas Nelson Publishers without expectation of a positive review. The sentiments expressed here are my own.
