Fairer Than Morning, Rosslyn Elliott

Ann is a fine young woman with the interest of more than one man, motherless sisters to care for, and a father who keeps secrets--but she has her own desires for life. Where will her heart and her God lead her?
Will is a brave man with few options, which leads him into indentured servitude with a new master, a master of evil. Is Will's strength enough to see him through to freedom and happiness?
FAIRER THAN MORNING, book one of The Saddler's Legacy, a new trilogy by Rosslyn Elliott, follows sweet Ann, as well as tortured Will, through loss and trial, misunderstanding and doubt. Could there be a life filled with love and promise in their future?
Rosslyn's expertise with historical fiction makes for prose that reads flawlessly. Her dialogue, and expressions of the early 1800's, zing, and her characters, along with their stories, are powerful.
If you like historical fiction, if you like tender romance or Christian-themed reads, this is one you don't want to miss. FAIRER THAN MORNING is released today (Thomas Nelson Publishers)!
