Publisher's Summary

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. However, 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....

Disappointing ending

The story was good but it ended abruptly with little explanation of what happened. An epilog would have given some closure.

Heart Warming

I was very happy to come across this story. I love the characters,I love how it was written and especially I love the fact that God it’s so prevalent in there characters. I wish there would’ve been more. But if you like me you never want a story to end you want to know the next chapter.

Great story and so well written and read

I rarely do a book review, but this story touched my heart. It is a very sweet story that kept my interest all along the way. The author is excellent in incorporating faith and goodness into her stories. The reader did an excellent job, also. There are interesting characters and situations in the story that deal with important themes of slavery and freedom. One interesting part of the story was the use of some of the words of a favorite hymn of mine that is especially meaningful to me because I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints. I loved the way the author incorporated words from this “Mormon“ hymn to express faith and resolve of some of the characters. I also loved the ending. I sincerely wish there were a sequel to this book.

Absolutely phenomenal!

Barbara McCulloh is one of my absolute favorite narrators and Kim Vogel Sawyer is one of my absolute favorite authors. When the two are paired, it makes for a phenomenal book. If I had been able to, I would've listened to this all in one shot, it's that good.

My head is thrumming

I like this author, but I need to seriously ask this question- can authors please stop overusing the word “thrumming”? The word is so overused nowadays. It was used several times in this book. Here are
Some alternatives…drumming, pounding, pumping, hammering, roaring to name a few. That is all.

Wonderful story

Another great book by Kim Vogel Sawyer. It begins in pre-Civil War Missouri in a time ripe with racial injustices for a family of escaped slaves as well as an indentured immigrant running from her owner. Teaming up, they help each other. It’s a book filled with God’s love, His guidance and plan for their lives. The narration was also very good. All around—-a very enjoyable read and another hit out of the park for Mrs Sawyer.
