Fairer Than Morning by Rosslyn Elliott
This book is based on a true story about Will Hanby and Ann Miller – how they met and fell in love. There was quite a bit of freedom taken with how they met, which really just lent itself to a very good and interesting story and plot line.
Each of them has many obstacles to overcome. Will Hanby is an indentured servant to an extremely harsh and mean-spirited man and feels like he will never gain his freedom. Ann Miller is a mother figure to her younger sisters since her mother died in childbirth while giving birth to her youngest sister. Her father is often away as a circuit preacher and she holds their family together.
She and her sisters accompany their father to Pittsburgh, PA while their father is hired for his saddle work. Will and her father work closely together and form a bond that will last throughout the rest of the book.
This book follows the constant struggles of contentment despite present circumstances for both Will and Ann and how they turn to God for that contentment.
Rosslyn Elliott is a new author and this is her first published book; though she has the second book in this series lined up to be published and released. This is an excellent first book and I truly look forward to more of this authors work. I think she will be a good author to follow.
