Publisher's Description

Fifteen years ago, Zeely Wilkins and Ron Jenkins were students the school district stopped believing in. Lucky for them, their teacher knew something the principal didn't; they were cream of the crop but they just hadn't sprouted the way people expected. Though they went their separate ways, the past is calling them back to the school and the teacher who wouldn't give up on them. Now they'll have to decide what love really means--and whether they're willing to dance to a new tune to get it. But can they rediscover the songs of deliverance that once brought them together? Or will secrets keep them apart?

Publisher's Weekly

This isn't as good as its predecessor, but readers who liked the characters introduced in Rhythms of Grace will be happy for one more dance with Grace, Brian, Zeely, Ron and assorted supporting characters. Ostensibly stand-alone, the story gets moving faster for readers already in on the tangled web of relationships, which gets a lot more tangled, and more related, as the four major characters slowly, slowly move past the trauma that ended the first novel. Both books are set in Testimony, Ohio, a place that, in the author's clever conceit, was home to any fleeing slave who could pay $500 to settle there. The history of slavery ties the story together as it marks and twists family lines laid out in the book. This good idea suffers in execution from a few too many secrets and neat resolutions. The pace also drags, with literal sermonizing as characters sit in church or as they agonize over repeated relationship setbacks. Though her promise doesn't deliver enough, Griffith remains worth watching. (Nov.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

    Everyone has a past. Not everyone can see beyond someones past and accept them for who they are in the present. And, not many can break through their own past and have the courage to step out and believe in themselves, and others, again for a long, long time. Such is the obstacle that stands in the way of Zeelys victory, deliverance, and peace. Not only Zeely, but her friend Grace, and others that have come together to support the teacher they all had in their youth that saw beyond their faults into their futures, and believed in them when no one else did. At the knowledge of Joyces illness, her students, now grown, have returned home to her, and found themselves opening the doors to their pasts that have been long since shut and locked. Will Zeely, Grace, and the others be able to overcome their pasts, stabilize their present, and redefine their futures? Can they find the strength to trust and love again? Will the wounds that have been opened and reopened ever heal? For so long the song of despair and pain has played loudly in their ears, but the faint sound of a Song of Deliverance has begun to grow in volume. Will it be tuned out and rejected, or will it be the new song of delivered hearts?Marilynn Griffith astounded me with her book! This one touched me deeply though, because I can personally relate to some of the issues mentioned in the book. The situations are real ones that people deal with in this day and time. The characters seemed so real to me, like my own friends! Good book, great read, and recommended by me! *smiles*This book was provided by Revell Publishing for the purpose of review, and is available at your local Christian bookstore now.

    Songs of Deliverance contains beautiful prose and insightful moments that make the reader think. I feel like I did myself a disservice by not reading the first book first, though. It seems like several foundations were laid in the prior book that I didn't have full access to since I began with the second in the series. I don't recommend that because it took away from my overall experience. That said, this story also contained more than a few "no way" moments for me. I felt like I was watching a talk show similar to Maury Povich where skeleton after skeleton came out of the closet. There were several situations that were unbelievably coincidental. But I have to say that made for great drama like you'd see in a soap opera. People were discovering all kinds of things they never expected, and parents that were not who they thought they'd be, etc. And tortured characters? This author has mastered that technique. The romantic elements were fabulously yummy and the message about true love and marrying for the right reasons and not to rescue someone were believable themes that were very well done. The faith element was strong and the book wrapped up the loose ends. I read this book quickly, and while a bit confused at first (due to starting with the second book) I was able to pick up on things and move on. I recommend it.

    Songs of Deliverance by Marilynn Griffith is the powerful sequel to Rhythms of Grace. The story picks up in the middle of an attack on dancer Grace Okoye and her rescue by her friends Zeely, Ron, and Brian. Each character has a rich, multi-layered history entwined with the others. Ron and Zeely have loved each other since high school, but each is engaged to another, and Grace and Brian are soulmates who can't seem to get past their history to find each other again. I wish that I had read the previous book, because it is important to untangle all of the lines of connection between the characters as well as the minor characters, although in Griffith's writing there are no minor characters. Every one is brilliantly rendered and completely real. Her writing is thick and rich, trapping readers and pulling them in this story of love, faith, and friendship. I want to know these people. I want to see Grace dance, Zeely sing, Brian play the drums, and Ron preach. Their story broke my heart and then put it back together again. I've been a fan of Griffith's for years, but this is absolutely her best work yet.
