Two generations, one song… (from Goodreads)
FTC DISCLOSURE: I received a complimentary copy of this book. A positive review was not required. These are my honest thoughts and opinions.
Since there isn’t much of a blurb for this short story, I went into it pretty blind. And I loved it. 😀
World War II tore apart the past, but a song weaves through two generations, binding hearts together and bringing hope.
There were some pretty beautiful sentences in this short story (yay for Kindle highlighter!), and Gram and Olivia’s relationship was sweet. I loved the song! ❤ I imagined it to be a lot like Rosemary’s song from The Giver movie adaptation. Gram’s encouragement to Olivia was also really special, and the romance (or romances? :D) was sweet. SPOILER ALERT! A guy asking permission to kiss a girl goodbye has got to be the most respectful, darling thing. END OF SPOILER!
There were some parts where I would have loved to have Gram’s story acted out instead of just narrated. Also, a little more on the happy times with James would have been nice. 😉
Best quotes: “Don’t ever forget, Livie, God has a plan for your life greater than all the sorrow you may ever feel.”
“The last few measures danced from the keys whispering of the hope of the future and the love of the present.”
Altogether–happy. It ended perfectly. ❤ I look forward to seeing what else this author writes! 😉
