“Fairer Than Morning” by Rosslyn Elliot

     Will believes he has just made the greatest deal in his life by signing himself as apprentice to Master Jacob Good for five years. When his term is finished he’ll have learned the trade of saddlery, earned a set of new tools, and a new coat and boots. Everything seems great at the time; of course he has no idea what the future has in store for him. His master turns out to be nothing but dire and cruel, he beats his apprentices very often. After being with Master Good for four long years, Will is happy his term is almost over, but things get complicated for him. Another Master saddler comes to the city of Pittsburg to make a special saddle in Master Good’s workshop. Mr. Miller is very kind to Will, and actually helps him. When Mr. Miller leaves Will is beaten almost to death by his master, he then decides to run away and takes refugee with Mr. Miller.

This book was not what I was expecting to read. The book was said to be about how Mr. Miller’s daughter, Ann, and Will fall in love, honestly throughout the whole book Ann and Will hardly even speak to each other. It was a great book overall but, if you’re looking for a romance book, then this… is not something you’ll enjoy. I still recommend it, the plot is original and pretty easy to follow, the characters are also intriguing, but… I don’t know I kind of felt there was something missing. Maybe the second book of this series will bring that something with it. I give this book 4 stars overall.
