Fairer Than Morning













Fairer Than Morning
by Rosslyn Elliott

"On a small farm in 19th-century Ohio , young Ann Miller is pursued by the gallant Eli Bowen, son of a prominent family. Eli is the suitor of Ann's dreams. Like her, he enjoys poetry and beautiful things and soon, he will move to the city to become a doctor.

Ann travels to Pittsburgh , accompanying her father on business. There she meets Will Hanby, a saddle-maker's apprentice. Will has spent years eking out an existence under a cruel master and his spirit is nearly broken. But Ann's compassion lights a long-dark part of his soul. Through his encounters with Ann's father, a master saddler, Will discovers new hope and courage in the midst of tremendous adversity.

When the Millers must return to Ohio and their ministry there, Will resolves to find them, at any
cost. If Will can make it back to Ann, will she be waiting?
"

I enjoyed reading Fairer Than Morning. Will won my heart over right away and Ann soon after; following their journey as they freed themselves from life and finally discovered who they were and what they wanted to become. This is Rosslyn's first novel and I think she did a fantastic job! I will definitely keep an eye out for her next book!
