Lucy Tuttle finds her passion and purpose in overseeing a music program for young hearts. It’s what she’s done for years, and it’s all she’s ever known. But when the program is cut from the school’s roster without any warning, Lucy is stunned to discover that the music in her heart begins to fade too. Suddenly everything about life doesn’t fit anymore. And bumping into her retired husband, Charlie, around every corner of their home, only adds to the confusion and claustrophobia that has become her life.
But when her son’s fiancé, Sasha, enters the scene, the young woman’s navigation through a soundless world brings newness to Lucy’s stilted heart. Told from a place of deep intuition and honesty, Song of Silence is a story that I highly recommend for any reader searching for her own song.
