Sweeter Than Birdsong by Rosslyn Elliott

Hearts Divided

Sweeter than Birdsong is a story that will take you back in history to a social world few, if any of us, can understand. It is a glimpse of slavery in many senses of the word at a time when the nation was divided… just beginning to change. It is a story of forbidden love between different classes of people when the heart will not follow the social proprieties of society. It is about finding courage to stand up for what is right and decent and good even when it is not popular.

The characters are lively with a variety of personalities sure to keep you reading late into the night.
