I was excited to receive a copy of this book by Cynthia Ruchti. I love her writing. This book was by no means a disappointment. Right from the beginning, she gets a hold of your heart and draws you in to the world she has created on the pages. The fact that this book centers around the love of God and music really captured me. Music is important to me and God has used it in so many special ways in my own life.
The characters feel so real. Cynthia developed them so deeply that you feel like you know them personally. I found myself caught up in their emotions and troubles as well as the way God moved in their lives in a very special way. It was so easy to see through their story how God has done similar things in my life.
This is a wonderful book, and I highly recommend it to you!
About the book:
Music taught Lucy love and beauty. Could silence teach her hope?
Lucy and Charlie Tuttle agree on one thing: they’re committed to each other for life. Trouble is, neither of them expected life to look like this. Charlie retired early, but Lucy is devoted to a long-term career . . . until the day she has no choice.
Forced to retire from her position as music educator in a small Midwestern K-8 school, Lucy can only watch helplessly as the program her father started years ago disintegrates before her eyes. As the music fades and a chasm separates her form the passion of her heart, Lucy wonders if her faith’s song has gone silent, too. The musical score of her life seems to be missing all the notes.
When a simple misstep threatens to silence Lucy forever, a young boy and his soundless mother change the way she sees—and hears—everything.
