Book Description: The beautiful piano sitting in the corner of Jill King's apartment begs to be played. For over a year, it has sat untouched, ever since a terrible accident shattered Jill's ambition of becoming a concert pianist. The ragged scar on her left hand is a cruel and constant reminder of the death of her dream. But another dream is about to come to life---an unexpected, horrifying dream that will present Jill with a responsibility she never wanted. And choices she never wanted to make. Hundreds of lives depend on Jill's willingness to warn her small, oceanside town in Nova Scotia of a nameless, looming disaster. But doing so could cost Jill her reputation, jeopardize the political career of the man she loves, and ruin their plans for a future together. The fate of an entire community hangs in the balance as Jill wrestles with the cost of heeding one still, small voice.
My Review: Lost Melody is a simply wonderful story about not giving up or giving in AND to always believe! Believe that God has an ultimate purpose and a plan.
Jill feels like a washed out has been...from great concert pianist to painful nightmares and scars. All which came in a split second. But she still remembers the stranger who told her that God would not let the dream die.
Jill lives with her feisty seventy-nine year old, soon to be eighty-year old, grandma. A grandma who lives and loves life with the passion of a person who believes the best is yet to come.
It seems that her grandma, Ruth Parkins, is the ally that keeps Jill going and keeps her on track.
Jill's boyfriend, Greg, is a strong, nice guy. Greg is the kind of guy most unmarried, single women would love to have around. Greg is Jill's stalwart companion.
And then Jill begins to have dreams...she needs to warn the town, but it's just a dream, a small voice.
Can one dream, a small voice make all the difference in the lives of people? And the one who chooses to obey that voice?
A very interesting and insightful read!
