Synopsis: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.

What did I think of this book:
I enjoy this nice story of a relationship between two people. I liked the midwestern setting of this story as well as the musical aspect of it. It was a very touching story. It is so sad that music programs are being taken out of schools. It is sad that so many good things are being taken away from kids. So I liked hearing about how Lucy is trying to save the program her dad started. I felt bad for Lucy as she just seemed to have so much going against her. This book has a few lessons to teach us as we read it and one of the big ones is to remember not to judge people. I thought this was another hit by this author.
