I am a big fan of Ruchti so I never miss the opportunity to read one of her books. Her latest song of silence with a music theme running throughout is a heartwarming story of love and hope.
Ruche’s characters are always really interesting and unique. Lucy and her husband Charlie are a typical married couple that bickers and doesn’t always see eye to eye. Their thought processes are completely opposite of each other which is often the case in marriages!
In the beginning of the book Lucy loses her job that she loves. It’s more than just a job. Music is her passion and her heart and a connection to her father. Charlie doesn’t understand the depth of her loss which creates even more space between them in their marriage.
As with all great losses Lucy has to grieve and find her footing again. She is lost without direction and purpose which I can certainly relate to.
While I’m not a musician, I still was able to connect to this book with the marriage theme and with struggling to find new purpose mid life after a path has already been chosen. Life doesn’t always look the way we thought it would and marriage definitely doesn’t. Ruchti does a wonderful job of exploring these aspects.
Will Lucy figure it out and reconnect with her husband? Will she find the music in her heart even though she’s lost so much? Song of silence is worth the read to find out!
About the Book
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.
