Song of My Heart by Kim Vogel Sawyer

About the book:

Sadie Wagner has always been devoted to her family. So when her stepfather is injured and can't work, she decides to leave home and accept a position as a clerk at the mercantile in Goldtree, Kansas. Goldtree also offers the opportunity to use her God-given singing talent--though the promised opera house is far different from what she imagined. With her family needing every cent she can provide, Sadie will do anything to keep her job.

McKane comes to Goldtree at the request of the town council. The town has been plagued by bootlegging operations, and Thad believes he can find the culprit. 

After he earns enough money doing sheriff work, he wants to use it to pay for his training to become a minister.

Thad is immediately attracted to the beautiful singer who performs in Asa Baxter's unusual opera house, but when he hears her practicing bawdy tunes, he begins to wonder if she's far less innocent than she seems. And when Sadie appears to be part of the very crimes he's come to investigate, is there any hope the love blossoming between them will survive?
Here's Kim!

Song of My Heart, set in the late 1800's, is a warm, heartfelt story that immediately drew me in to Sadie Wagner's life. In her desire to help her family she moves to another state, takes a clerking job in Goldtree, Kansas, and has the opportunity to sing in an opera house. 

Choices and decisions lead to all types of repercussions and consequences and Sadie made choices that will lead to some hard consequences. 

I could see where trouble would begin for her, unfortunately she didn't see it. She just wanted to make enough money to send back home. Because of that desire to help her family, she gets caught in the worst of all traps. Then she tries to balance what she is doing by what she is trying to do, take care of her family.

Kim Vogel Sawyer kept me turning the pages so I could find out if Sadie would be able to get out of the mess she found herself in.

I couldn't help but fall in love with Sawyer's characters, including Mr. Asa Baxter. The innocence of Sadie, her misguided cousin, Sid, the twins, Miss Shelva and Melva and the sheriff, Thad McKane are all strong and colorful characters that make Song of My Heart a story well worth reading over and over again.
