Song of Silence Review Part 1!!!!

Song of Silence by Cynthia Ruchti

Book Description:
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 Opinion:
I love how Cynthia can take the most stressful and terrible circumstances and still weave humor into them! :D  It's those nuggets of comic relief that make the turmoil bearable in life and in reading! :)  Oh the manipulation of some of those in charge!  It is crazy and Cynthia also portrays it to a T here!  The characters are entertaining and relatable!  You feel for Lucy as she struggles with her world being turned upside down and Cynthia writes Charlie (Lucy's husband) in such a realistic, one moment you love him and the next you want to strangle him, sort of way! LOL!  Then throw in all the other characters from unique artsy friends to loving daughters and more!  Plus filled with tons of emotion from panic, to anger, to sorrow, and beyond!  Can Lucy find her Faith again to help her move on towards an uncertain future?  TO BE CONTINUED!  

Songs to come:

Songs etc. May be changed and/or added in the future. ~ASC
