Fantastic Beautiful Story!

I loved Otto and Klara's story! It is one of struggle, hope, love, and grace! I stayed up WAY WAY WAY too late finishing it all in one sitting. I was amazed at how the author took a mute character and still brought so much emotion, development, and "conversation" between the characters! I just could not put it down! I highly recommend reading this book, but be sure to start it early so you don't stay up too late!

Loved it!!!

This was the book I didn't know I needed. These characters had my heart breaking for their back stories. So glad they got their HEA!! Thank you for these spinoff stories from the Vestige in Time series. It has been so fun to revisit those characters and that world!! Hope we get more at some point! After all, River Daniels needs his HEA after Violet broke his heart! ;-)

fabulous historical romance & redemption

What a delight it was to read “Song of a Determined Heart”. I love it when authors pick up an unfinished or briefly introduced story from previously enjoyed books and share their continued journey. (This book can easily be read as a stand alone novel; however, you would miss out on background details from other books.) Otto was given a second chance and a new livelihood through the generosity of Orlando Thomas. Saving mute Klara from the cruelty she experienced came automatically to Otto as he charged in to rescue her. They continue to save each other as their story unfolds in unexpected twists and turns. Their journey contains mystery, heartbreak, murder and loss but also the beautiful hope of love, faith, friendship and new beginnings. I absolutely loved Otto and Klara’s story and didn’t want to see it end! If you haven't read Sara Blackard's books before, you are missing out!!

A must read story

I love this book. Sara has written a beautiful story of overcoming difficult circumstances. Otto's guilt and Klara's physical limitations represent real life problems. Her characters feel like people you know, love, and cheer for. Sara's stories draw you in from the start and she weaves twists and turns throughout the book.

Determination, Love of God and True Grit

This is a heartfelt story of determination and dedication to finding the truth in a wild mining town. This is an adventurous tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Sara Blackard puts the reader into every scene of this thrilling story. Klara’s parents decide to move west, but along the way, they die of illness. Klara is mute and needs protection, so she goes with a couple. They are wicked people who physically and mentally mistreat Klara, who lives in fear and sleeps in the barn. Otto is an inexperienced sheepherder who was given a herd of sheep as an experiment and needs to make a profit to pay off his debt. He was on his way to town for flour and bacon and witnessed Klara being beaten. He steps in and rescues her, then with the suggestion of Trapper Dan, ends up with a wife so he can protect her from the wild men of the town. Challenging events and the trials of two people, who seem to be opposites, learning to live together kept me turning the pages. Sara Blackard’s storytelling does not disappoint!
