Songbird is historical fiction by Nancy Lohr set in 1770 in the British Colony of Williamsburg. Truxton Pilcher must work in his father’s pewter foundry reclaiming the metal shavings and stoking the fire. When Mr. Scrivner is seriously wounded in an accident in the Pilcher foundry, Truxton’s father is declared guilty of a hanging offense, and Truxton may be the only one who can ask the Governor for a pardon. This Christian fiction book features verses from the Psalms of David in Metre, the only copy of Scripture this fictional family owns.
Songbird is also used as a companion novel with Bible Truths 5: Living in God's Love.
