A story of hope!
Even in betrayal we can find restoration and healing!
This romantic novel is very unique in one way. It contains a 12 song music track that follows the story line of the book. You can read the lyrics of the songs printed in the book, and you can also listen to the songs being sung, which increases the emotional appeal. The songs blend with the story, thus enhancing it, and giving it more emotion and meaning.
This was done because, in addition to writing this book, Roger Himes also composed the music and lyrics of these songs. The lyrics of an old song best illustrate why music helps in creating a new depth of understanding:
“Music speaks louder than words,
it’s the only thing the whole world listens to,
when you sing, people understand.”
THE STORY LINE OF THE BOOK:
Scott, the lead character, sings all the songs. He is a lawyer by profession, but he is The Singer by preference. His songs create emotional impact, and increase your involvement in his story. Yes, you can hear Scott sing the songs! A link inside allows you to listen to the songs being sung!
It is said, “Life is what happens to you while you’re making other plans.” This is what happened to Scott. He left his law practice in Denver, Colorado and moved his family to Wildwood, to have more time to compose and sing. But some unforeseen problems changed his plans and the course of his life.
We all experience problems in life. In fact, much of life is about learning how to respond to problems, and to problem people in positive ways. This heart-warming story shows how Scott and his wife Sharon did this, along with their children: Megan, Julie and Garvin.
The songs embellish the story in a more dramatic way, creating a whole new dimension and perspective to what is being read.
Here’s a listing of the songs, all sung by the lead character Scott:
