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.

Loving music like I do and sharing it with my best friend, this book was fantastic.What an emotional read, but I did not expect anything different for Ruchti. I hung on ever word and I loved Lucy and was in her corner until the very last page.
I love the characters so much, they were so real to me.
Working with special needs kids would be like a dream for me. This book had it all.
I finished this book as soon as I opened it up and started reading it. This would make a fantastic book club read.
I gave this book 5 stars and I HIGHLY recommend it.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
