    1. Cora Buchanan had been deserted by her husband, Clark--or perhaps he was dead. She didn't know which. She hadn't heard from him since the day he disappeared a year ago. She'd spent the year living with his parents, a kind-hearted couple who took her to their hearts.She made the decision to go back to her own parents with some reluctance. They didn't approve of her--nothing she did pleased them--but perhaps it was time to mend the fences.She could have asked them for money. She couldn't ask her i [...]

    5. Excellent book. It kept me entertained from the very first page and kept me guessing as to who the bad guy was the whole way and had me totally fooled (which is not easily done I might add). I love the way the author uses Cora's trust in God in view of the many many hardships she has had in her life and the people who have let her down. The scriptures the author uses are heartfelt and it was a very good read. I will be looking forward to reading more of her books. Thank you Sherri for allowing m [...]

    6. Having read and loved To Dance Once More, I was sort of expecting another historical. Of course, if I had read the back cover I would have realized it wasn't. Shame on me. However, after I got over my initial shock, I enjoyed this story a great deal. What's not to love about a rugged cowboy and his young daughter? Song of the Meadowlark was a well-written, wonderful story of second chance love. I read it in ONE day and only stopped long enough to feed my hungry crew. ***I received this book from [...]

    7. A truly delightful story with well-drawn characters realistic conflicts, enough detail to keep the reader interested, but nothing gross or immoral. Cora needed a new life since her drug-dealer husband disappeared a year ago. She set out for Florida, her parents' home, but only got as far as Georgia where her new life began because of Ms. Lottie and Rex O'Reilly, a handsome, but stubborn, rancher who had lost his wife.

    16. I had never read any books by Sherri Wilson Johnson and I was very pleased with this one.When she advertised it was a clean romance for Christians, I thought, hmm, let's see.

That man deceived her and left her. As a Christian she wanted to remain faithful to him. After her husband's disappearance - the first plot [...]

    17. Review on : amazon/review/R3U6NQ2RReview on my blog (to be posted 8/18): christianbookshelfreviewsI read and loved Sherri Wilson Johnson's previous novel, To Dance Once More, a couple years ago, so I was looking forward to this book and it was a good read!I loved all of the different characters and the suspense that was thrown into this contemporary romance. I was really surprised by something that happened in Song of the Meadowlark -- I won't say what, exactly, except that it had to do with the [...]

    18. I should have known better than to read a book just because it’s free on the Kindle! This book is terrible. The characters are all awful, clueless people, but act like they are better than everyone else in their small town. Cora is very self-righteous for someone who was married to a drug trafficker. The plot makes no sense either. Cora is kidnapped, but escapes. She doesn’t seem fazed by that experience at all. Later when she finds out other women in town have been kidnapped and murdered, s [...]

    19. A strong combination of suspense and Jane Austen style romance, Song of the Meadowlark leads the reader from Georgia to Florida and back again.Cora's life journey captures the reader in a way that creates an insatiable need to read more, to learn more, and to discover more.With a strong faith element, Cora's dependence and faith in the Lord shows the reader the epitome of true love and true devotion.The romantic dance between Cora and Rex is reminiscence of Elizabeth and Darcy. Delightful and be [...]

    20. I take my chances on new authors where sometimes I'm happy and sometimes I struggle. I struggled with this book. Recycled plotyoung woman has car trouble, takes next exit and finds love. Okay there are a few chapters in-between but even the suspense didn't seem too suspenseful as I figured it out right from the start. What got me though was how sections of the Kindle book jumped randomly to a new time frame or scenario without warning. More than once I paged back to make sure I didn't miss a pag [...]

    21. "Song of the Meadowlark" was my introduction to Sherri Wilson Johnson as an author. This was an enjoyable read with a little bit of everything in just the right amounts. The suspense element was strong enough to keep the reader interested, yet subtle enough to not detract from the unfolding romance. I read this book at a rather busy time of life, and it was good to spend those few hours watching Cora and Rex's story come to life. Definitely not time wasted. *I received a copy of this book from t [...]

    22. Setting: Georgia, modern timesCharacters : Cora and RexI read this mostly because it was set in Georgia, but it could have been anywhere. I didn't love any of the characters. They were always fighting or grouchy or something. Then they would turn into perfectly pleasant people. The book read like a young adult book for me and I didn't love that about it. Still, I was curious to see what happened and finished the book.

    23. I read this so long ago that I'm not even remembering it much. I took it chiefly for it's title -- the Meadowlark is one of my favorite birds. But this was, If I remember right - in Georgia, or in that area, which means it was the Eastern Meadowlark,, which doesn't have nearly as beautiful a song as our Western. But as I remember it's use - the song of the meadowlark was used right at the end in a very beautiful way. I think it was a good historical romance read.

    24. Mainly a romance but with a serial killer. It was ok but not a book that I could tell people you will really like this.

    25. Cora & Rex meet in GA. She is heading to her parents in Panama City, FL. But her car breaks down in a small town where she end up taking a job as a nanny to Rex's 3 year old daughter, Susie.There is a serial murderer to be found and lots of relationships that are changed and healed in this Christian novel. 3.5 stars

    26. Second Chance Inspirational RomanceCora is a 25 year old woman searching for her place in the world. This story had a slow beginning but I am glad I persevered as it got better and turned out to be a good read.This is rich in talking about growing, changing and (for the most part) healing relationships. 3.5 stars

    27. Bad push and pull romance Only am writing a review so other won't waste their time. First the romance is all on then half way through Rex treats Cora like she does everything wrong because she has to go to hear the will read of her deceased husband. The plot is very unrealistic, got dizzy trying to decide what was wrong with Rex. Not worth finishing.

    28. Cora's story is truly amazing. Cora has gone through so much pain in her life. When her car breaks down her life completely changed. Cora and Rex's story is wonderful to watch. You will feel God working on these characters in this book. You won't be able to stop reading this book.

    29. NOT believable. The characters in this book are shallow and do not act like any of the people I know. Sorry to give such a bad review, but I don't think I want to give this any more of my time.
