Song of Silence

Song of Silence
Cynthia Ruchti
Charlie and Lucy have a great marriage and amazing kids. Charlie retired from his job early, but Lucy loves her career as a music teacher and plans to engage in her passion indefinitely. But when the entire music program is cut, Lucy finds herself without a song. She's drifting and Charlie has no idea how to help.

This was a complex book of emotions and insight. The book started out a little slow for me, but it didn't take long before I was immersed in the main character. Despite the age difference there were so many things that I could relate to in the story. The author did a great job of conveying how Lucy felt. This was a way to reconnect emotionally with my own marriage and see how I could make a difference in how I react or respond. I would highly recommend this book for several reasons - the writing is exceptional, the thoughts on marriage are spot on, it deals with empty nest and depression, the story is also humorous and entertaining. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more by this author.

I received this book free of charge from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for my honest review.
