Fairer Than Morning is the first book in The Saddler’s Legacy. From the book cover: “The Saddler’s Legacy Series is a work of fiction inspired by a real family in American history – the Hanby family, who are to this day the most celebrated citizens of Westerville, Ohio.”
In 19th-century Ohio, Ann Miller is helping her widowed father raise her younger sisters. She’s been courted for years by the “perfect” man, and is convinced God has brought them together. Then she meets Will, a saddler’s apprentice, and starts to wonder if she’s really doing what God wants her to do with her life. Meanwhile, Will has problems of his own.
Some books are hard to review simply because I don’t want to say too much and give away any of the story. Fairer Than Morning is one of those books. This is romance, but it’s also about finding God, and obedience, forgiveness, and grace.
There were some parts that made me want to hit certain characters over the head, but that just means I was involved in the story. I’m looking forward to reading more in this series.
I won this book in a Goodreads First Read giveaway.
