About the Book:
Will Hanby is an apprentice to saddle maker Jacob Good, a hard, demanding man. Just equally Will is losing all promise for his future, he meets Samuel Miller together with his daughter, Ann. Samuel is also a saddle maker, together with he non alone teaches Will to decease a amend saddler, but he teaches him to decease a amend man. When Will realizes he must escape from Master Good, he flees to the Millers’ dwelling inwards Ohio. Samuel is thrilled to reckon Will again–but volition Ann be?
Fairer Than Morning is 1 of those novels that you lot don’t desire to end. In the beginning, I wasn’t equally good into it. (This is basically because of Ann–every human she met seemed to autumn for her. That’s non genuinely a missy I tin john position with!) But equally Will’s even progressed–through his horrible fourth dimension amongst Master Good to his harrowing escape to his interest amongst the Underground Railroad–I industrial plant life that I couldn’t halt reading! (I also began to similar Ann–which is good, since the brain romance was betwixt Will together with Ann.) Fairer Than Morning is much to a greater extent than than what the encompass implies, together with I’d debate that Will is genuinely the focus of the story, non Ann. Will is an incredibly believable character, together with the abuse he faced at the hands of Master Good was heart wrenching. Will is the pump together with mortal of this story, together with I can’t hold off for his family’s journeying to decease on inwards mass two!
I give Fairer Than Morning 4-1/2 out of five stars. If you lot similar historical fiction, you’ll bask this book!
***Side note: Don’t you lot simply dearest the cover? True, it reflects Ann, non Will, but the encompass is what made me desire to read this mass inwards the initiative of all place. And doesn’t Ann await simply similar Rachael Leigh Cook?***
