"When her nieces and nephews fall victim to their alcoholic father's mistakes, Susanna Hanby vows to rescue them. In 1875, Susanna Hanby travels to her sister's Ohio farm--but no one is there. Her sister's alcoholic husband claims that she has run off and dumped their six children at the county orphanage, and he doesn't care. Desperate to keep the family together, Susanna seeks help from her uncle Will in Westerville. Johann Giere is heir to a thriving German-American brewery in Columbus. When he helps a saloon owner take beer to Westerville, Johann expects a fight between the new saloon and the driest town in America.

Lovelier than Daylight is a novel of faith and grace inspired by the real Hanby family of Ohio and their role in the Westerville Whiskey Wars"--Provided by publisher
