Product 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.

    While well written I just couldn't get into this different plot perspective. Nothing wrong, just didn't hit the target for me.

    I enjoyed the concept of this story and the underlying romantic elements. I also enjoyed the theme that true love sticks with someone during hard times. I think it's interesting that several stories have popped up this year that have similar themes of visions, dreams etc. being given to people. That said, the story had some compelling undertones. If we felt like God was telling us to warn people, would we keep silent in order to save ourselves from looking like we were nuts? That's a tough question.

    Greg was a great hero. He struggled like anyone would with the whole thing and how it was influencing the campaign, but he was so supportive. He was a great example of how love is shown by holding another person up who is struggling, rather than abandoning them because how their problem might negatively reflect on you. I loved the symbolism there. Greg had guts. But Jill's belief was pretty compelling. It's hard not to say much that won't spoil the story. I wouldn't want someone to tip me off ahead of time.

    That said, I loved the little old ladies who supported her as well. How many of us are lucky enough to have so many people stick with us through hard times and in the face of adversity? What a great bunch of gals! I got some warm fuzzies, too, that some people who were skeptical at first ended up heeding her warning. No doubt Jill felt affirmation as well. I grieved a bit toward the end there, plus my heart swelled with anticipation and joy at some of the events that took place. Hard to say what they are again due to the spoiler thing.

    This novel made me think about how hard it would be to be called by God to be a modern day prophet. They were killed in the past. Nowadays they'd be shut up in an insane asylum, or drugged up to stop it. I could see the inspiration in this story by providing courage to someone who feels God is wanting them to do something, and they have been afraid to go ahead with whatever that thing is due to being ridiculed. If nothing else, Lost Melody shows that it's important to stick by your convictions and to listen to God's voice. It's also important to support those you love and not abandon them. Plus, the crisis gave Jill the courage to play again. That was heart-warming. All in all, a good read.

    Virginia Smith and Lori Copeland have created a wonderful novel together. I was sucked in from the very beginning of the book and could not put it down. Each time I planned to read only a page or two I would find myself reading chapter after chapter.

    It was so easy to instantly love the main character Jill. She is on top of the world when the accident happens and her life is forever changed. She struggles with issues that many of us have faced and yet she continues on with life - even at times when she may not want to.

    This is an incredible book and I would suggest it to anyone looking for a book that you won't be able to put down!

    Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith did a great job penning Lost Melody. They did a great job of combining drama, humor and suspense. I especially love the 'Real Romance' between Jill and Greg. You see and feel all the doubts and fears that Greg has about Jill and her dream and he chooses to love her through it all anyway.

    I received the book in the mail on a Friday Afternoon, by Saturday morning I finished it. And when I say Saturday morning, I mean, the wee hours of the morning. There was no putting it down for me!

    This book will keep you guessing. It's not predictable, it's a book that will make you wonder if everything is going to turn out ok at the end.

    I hope to see more Copeland/Smith books in the future!
