Praise

Sawyer (Echoes of Mercy) again digs into history in this enjoyable faith-filled adventure about an indentured servant on a popular riverboat. In 1860, Fanny Beck is the star singer aboard the River Peacock steamboat, but also a prisoner between shows, as she’s indentured to Sloan Kirkpatrick for a seven-year contract. Fanny dreams of escape, praying that one day she’ll reunite with her family in New York City. Then Fanny learns that Sloan plans not to honor the end date of the contract, and, when a fire breaks out on the boat, she escapes. Fanny’s long trek to freedom includes traveling witha family of escaped slaves, sleeping aboard train cars, and singing for money—and then Sloan pursues her upon learning she survived the fire. After Fanny arrives in Gideon, Ind., she finds a sobbing child alone in a cabin and meets the girl’s father, Walter Kuhn, who recently injured himself. He works out a deal for Fanny to care for the girl in order to earn train fare until Walter’s mail-order bride arrives. But plans change when a relationship between the two kindles. Sawyer’s episodic narrative and rich assortment of characters fighting for freedom provide the story with many twists and unexpected side-plots. The author’s fans will love this. (Oct.) — Publishers Weekly


“Kim Vogel Sawyer has once again written a delightful, heartwarming tale of romance and adventure. Readers will come to love Fanny and Walter—and perhaps even the “villain,” Sloan—all compelling characters, each of whom journeys to a moment of gripping revelation and change. Don’t miss this engaging story.” — Louise M. Gouge, award-winning author of Winning Amber

“A truly enjoyable and riveting read. Young Fanny’s character captured me right from the start. A beautifully told story of the priceless value of freedom.” — Melody Carlson, author of the Legacy of Sunset Cove series

“Kim Sawyer is known for her long list of uplifting and hope-filled novels, but Freedom’s Song may be her best yet. Deftly weaving the theme of freedom through an unforgettable story of love and escape, Kim delivers a tale that readers will not soon forget. The characters will jump off the page and into your heart, and the message will bring you hope.” — Kathleen Y’Barbo, a Publishers Weekly
bestselling author of The Yes Dare, book 3 of the Pies, Books & Jesus Book Club series

“Kim Vogel Sawyer writes classic Christian fiction at its finest. Freedom’s Song is no exception. I didn’t want it to end, but it ended the way I wanted it to—that is a great book.” — Tracey Bateman, author of The Nanny Proposal

Freedom’s Song is a heartwarming story of God’s perfect timing and provision. Out of the darkness of indentured servitude emerges a sweet romance and a strong story of hope that will resonate with readers. Fanny, the heroine, is inspiring because she never gives up and she clings to her faith in spite of the difficult things she faces. Another great read from Kim Sawyer.” — Vickie McDonough, bestselling author of more than fifty novels and novellas, including The Anonymous Brid
