Song of Silence | Cynthia Ruchti


Today I am reviewing Song of Silence by Cynthia Ruchti.

Here is a brief synopsis:

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.

While Charlie retired early, 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 from 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.





Song of Silence is amazing!

When Lucy loses her job, due to budget cuts, everything seems grim. I’ve never experienced RIF — but I can sympathize with someone losing something that means everything to them.

I really can’t say much, or I could give away too much. The synopsis gives a very good idea of what Lucy and Charlie are going through. The single misstep — oh yeah, when I got to it, I had to stay up way past my bedtime — until I was done. Finished. Last words read.

Cynthia Ruchti has captured my heart again!

I laughed . . . and I cried. The story will capture your heart — and your emotions — until you have no choice, but to hang on to the end.

I’m definitely looking forward to reading more by this author!

Well done, Cynthia.


I heartily recommend Song of Silence to ALL my readers.
