Song of Silence PK

 

I’ve never been much of a pianist myself- though I do take lessons – but thanks to Cynthia’s excellent writing, I can easily relate to the main character in this story.

I cannot begin to imagine how I would go on if I were forced to stop writing . . . but it’s easy to put myself in Lucy’s shoes.

Despite the apparent loss of hope,  it is a wonderful story – one I highly recommend!

HAPPY READING!

{MORE ABOUT SONG OF SILENCE}

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 nochoice.

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.

Jan Drexler clearly does her research – and does it well. Then she crafts a beautiful story around that foundation.

Here is a brief synopsis from Publisher

Hannah Yoder loves her quiet life on the banks of the Conestoga Creek. In 1842, this corner of Lancaster County is settled and peaceful–yet problems lurk beneath the placid façade.

Hannah’s father worries about the spread of liberal ideas from their Mennonite and Brethren neighbors. And Hannah blames herself for a tragedy that struck their home nine years ago. She strives to be the one person who can bind the threads of her family together in spite of her mother’s ongoing depression and her sister’s rejection of their family.

But her world is threatening to unravel.

When two young men seek her hand in marriage–one offering the home she craves and the other promising the adventure of following God’s call west–Hannah must make a choice. Faithfully perform her duties to her family? Or defy her father and abandon her community?
