Fairer Than Morning

Fairer Than Morning
by Rosslyn Elliott

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was Christian fiction which is my favorite so I was pretty excited to get it. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. The outcome is predictable as is all romantic fiction, but the author put enough twists into the story to make it very enjoyable and at times unpredictable reading.
The story starts with a girl who can't decide if she wants to marry her suitor and an indentured servant boy who is being abused. The story is how they each came to know each other and their Savior.
It was a bit hard to read about the abuse - both to the indentured slave and to the other slaves in the book. The book was set before the Civil War when slavery was an accepted way of life for most people. And abuse to them was considered normal and acceptable.
The author took a true story in history and by "bending" a few details was able to make a story both believable and entertaining to the reader. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series.
