I have read Sheila's other two books Angel Song and Sweet Sanctuary and loved them both so no doubt I was going to love Song of the Brokenhearted. She is such a women after Gods own heart. Shelia is a very talented author she pulls you in from page one and, you will not want to put the book down until the very last page. I loved this story so much.It is a story about life and how sometimes it is very hard, but in the end God works it all out. I loved it and give it 4 stars. I can't wait to see what Shelia has in store for us next.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Song of the Brokenhearted is the story of Ava, a middle aged woman who seems to have the perfect life. She is wealthy, has two successful children, a good marriage, and what appears to be a solid relationship with God. It's when her life begins to fall apart that she begins to search for a deeper relationship with God and a greater understanding of what he has planned for her. This is a solid choice for any fan of Christian fiction, as it conveys some great messages of faith. I found it less than inspiring or satisfying from a literary standpoint due to slow pacing, lack of character development, and a curious lack of emotion that seemed to be present throughout the novel. This novel seems to be written on a single level of emotion that left dialogue sounding flat and expressionless, with little drama to surround events that should have been very dramatic.

I found it very hard to relate to Ava, and for much of this story didn't even like her. She didn't seem authentic to me until the very end of the novel when she returned to visit her family. It's only then that I felt like I was reading about a real, multi-dimensional person. The brief moments at the end were not sufficient to turn her into a person I really cared about. For most of the story, she seemed flat and predictable.

The story redeems itself somewhat during the final third of the book when we finally get to examine some real issues. The ending is what pushed this up to a three star book for me, although I can't say that anything that happened really surprised me. It just felt like the authors had finally gotten around to telling the story they wanted to tell from the beginning. Unfortunately, I simply had little interest in these characters. Fans of Christian fiction will no doubt find much to enjoy here. For this woman of faith, I will continue to look for some Christian fiction with a bit more literary heft.

This book, Song of the Brokenhearted, by Sheila Walsh and Cindy Coloma, is a beautiful portrait of grace, hope and redemption. At times in our lives, we have to find a way to let go of the past, and the character in this book, Ava, finally learns to do just that. But it's not an easy road, and it's a long, long journey.

Ava had what appeared to be a perfect life, if you were on the outside looking it. Her family came complete with two 'perfect' kids. But then her daughter called of her upcoming wedding, and her son struggled with addiction. Her husband's company was also going through some trials and tribulations, all of which were embarrassing to the family.

Ava heads to her childhood home...somewhere she vowed never to return to. But through this journey, she found the redemptive power of love and faith.

I was watching 700 Club when Sheila decided to leave and check into the mental hospital. Still not sure where on all the spectrum she is but this book is some of her story from along the years. I recently heard her at Women of Faith. Buy her books used they are not worth the new prices.

I was not completely sure why I ordered this book. But after the first few pages, I knew that God had a message for me. I find myself too busy helping everyone else that I often neglect my own family. In so many ways, we are all brokenhearted

Ava's life is full of material blessings, an enviable family. She is a Bible study leader and has organized the women of her church to reach out to the broken-hearted. Ava's world falls apart around her and she realizes she has never told her
children about her early life that is full of many broken-hearted situatins. Ava decides to go back to her chidhood home to heal both the past and the present. She will be returning home with her younger cousin'x baby left on her doorstep. Ava is also troubled that her weeping willow tree is dying, a gift from her brother from their childhood home. The authors' narration of Ava'a trip home is as if they are
telling it just to you. It's reminescent of the readers' own childhood years as told, good or bad, by older relatives. My attention was completely absorbed in
Ava's journey. Ava's own broken heart has a new song at journey's end. And, the
tree has new life.

Song of the brokenhearted (Women of faith. )I love Shelia Walsh and have read several of her books. This one is a wonderful story of God's restoration power in a brokenhearted persons life. I did not find it overpowering or preachy but some might. I enjoyed its original story it gave me encouragement.Anyway thats all I can say.

Indeed, this is about a woman who's dedicated her life to God and yet goes through experiences leaving her brokenhearted. The story is told with sensitivity and emphasizes God's love and His ability to transform broken hears into beautiful objects. A little heavy for dedicated non-believers, but may still do them some good.
