About the Book
Song of Silence (Abingdon, April 2016)
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.

My review :
"Song of Silence" is a story of family love, and hope. Lucy's husband has already retied but she is still working at what she loves. She love to teach music and has done so all her life. The day comes where she also has to stop working at what she loves and their life is never the same. Faith seems to be too much for her to hope for and believe in anymore. She meets a family that will help her and restore her once again. Can a little boy really be what she was waiting for? She has to come to the realization that things can be different. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for a review by Litfuse Publicity. These are my opinions.
