I received a complimentary copy of Melody's Song from the author as a winner on a blog post. I was not required to write a review but have expressed my honest opinion.
I also enjoyed the other characters. They have purpose and are not superficial. More than anything, Melody's Song has an affirming message on the power of prayer. No matter what your faith level, I believe you too will be drawn in and encouraged by this sweet story.
I received a copy of Melody's Song in exchange for an honest review.
The reader is able to relate to the plot and numerous sub-plots—relocating, grief, friendship, death, a lost son, anger, abuse, and the need for a Savior. And the power of prayer is central throughout the book.
Even with some editorial errors, I recommend Melody’s Song. I also recommend Friesen’s other books—Nila’s Hope and Redemption’s Whisper.
Melody Jamison has recently moved to Saskatoon. While her move was necessary (she could no longer keep up the farm after her husband died), she also hoped that the nightmares of her husband's tragic death would go away in a new setting. Unfortunately for Melody, changing locations doesn't work. In addition to the nightmares that plague her, she worries over her son Will, who left home determined to prove he didn't need his parents, God or anyone for that matter. As Melody lifts her concerns to the Lord, she begins to doubt her faith in God and demonic attacks soon set in. But God is bigger than Satan and He uses the people in her new neighbourhood to not only strengthen her faith, but confirm to those around her that God is real and loves them.
Melody's Song is a book on the power of prayer and what can happen when we give everything over to God. While it could have used a better edit (the characters thoughts were not italicized), it did not detract from the story. In fact, I rather liked the fast-paced quality of the writing. The author managed to show me what was going on in the scene and give me background history all through her characters, through the normal course of conversation. There were no long boring paragraphs filled with descriptions of the surroundings. I like her style and I hope to read something more from her again.
I give Melody's Song 4/5 stars!
