A new kind of love story from one of America's best loved romance writers, With Song is one of three novels in the trilogy that also includes With Heart and With Hope.
This is the second in Garlock's wonderful Depression-era series and a sequel to With Hope and followed by With Heart. It is set in Deward County, KS, in 1935 and begins with young Molly McKenzie singing lightheartedly as she changes the sheets in the upstairs living quarters of McKenzie's General Store. When she hears a series of loud pops, she thinks her father is plaguing her mother with the latest shipment of firecrackers, but she looks out the front window to witness two men getting into a big black car. When she goes downstairs, she discovers that both her parents have been killed and the store robbed. Molly's world is further upset by the advent of Hod Dolan, a federal agent, who convinces Molly to let him use her as bait to lure the bad guys back to the scene of the crime, not realizing just how dangerous this will prove to be. Even listeners who normally shun romances will enjoy this narrative, read by Kate Forbes, for the suspense, the interesting setting, and great characters. Enthusiastically recommended for all public libraries. Barbara Perkins, Irving P.L., TX Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
