{{Book Review}} Song of Silence | Music taught Lucy love and beauty. Could silence teach her hope?

Charlie and Lucy Tuttle are committed to each other for life, but that life isn’t turning out quite like they expected. Charlie retired early, but Lucy planned to continue in her position as a music educator in a small Midwestern K-8 school indefinitely. And then the day came when she was forced to retire. Lucy was devoted to the program her father started years ago and now she can only watch as it disintegrates before her eyes. The longer she is separated from the passion of her heart, the more the music fades from her life and she wonders if her faith’s song is fading too. 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*
I am a HUGE fan of Cynthia Ruchti. I have read just about every one of her books & they always leave me wanting more books from her. I loved "As Waters Gone By" and thought nothing could comepare that book, but "Song of Silence" is right up there. Her characterizations are deep and true to the way she weaves the story and the characters.She makes it feels like you are right there in the room with them, going through the trials and joys of their lives.
