The main theme of this story is compassion. It runs like the Gold mother vein in this world's dark and traitorous caverns . Compassion , those who have it , are blessed to spread love and sympathy. Such is K'acy McGee. She's an aide in Pine Manor Assisted Living . You cant miss her when you enter its premises, She's the one with calm gentle smile , helping each and every old man or woman, with utmost patience and love. Be it changing diapers, collecting colostomy bags, combing, shaving or dressing them. You see, she has a calling in life- to show as much compassion and love to these old people when they're ready to leave this world. She will be the last thing they see, hers will be the last hand they hold, her gentle eyes will be the last they'll gaze into, as they drift off to another world. She gives them what no one else does.
Time and Love
Nothing on this Earth should have to suffer before a foreseeable, inevitable death. Nothing. That’s why we’re born with empathy and understanding already inside. It’s a part of being human, and my daddy taught me not to be afraid of it.
Every human being deserves to live— and die— surrounded by too much compassion and grace.
She's a bass guitarist by day in her band -Crackerjack Townhouse. And assisted home aide by night.
She meets Adam Sinclair, who's come to visit her grandma and her life changes forever.
The characters of Jarrod, Evelyn, Winston,Perry K'acy & Adam are all linked together by this invisible thread of fate. Claire has managed to delve deeply into the human heart and it's infinite capacity of forgiveness and Love. Every character in the Pine Manor , every scene, every encounter, is there for a reason. To show that we may meet so many people in our lives , they all have their baggage of stories and secrets with them. We just need to take notice
The sad truth is that most people are too busy to hear these days. They just go about their business, listening to the requests of their boss, their child, their spouse, their neighbor, and trying to fulfill those requests with some kind of action. But they don’t really hear anything in the process. They don’t have the chance to open their hearts to someone else’s life. There’s no time for it. Their own life is moving too fast. But what they fail to see is that it only takes a minute to open your heart wide enough to hear someone. It only takes a single question to spark a story that takes but a moment to be heard.
The story will echo long after you close the book. You will wander in this world now hearing people instead of just listening, such is the profound impact of her words.
I did emerge as a better person just by reading this story. And I'm sure you will too. This is the hallmark of a good writer.
Thank you Claire, for trusting me with your book and enlightening me

Spoiler Free Review
I was so excited when I heard the news that Claire Wallis was releasing a new book. Her debut novel Push was released in the spring of 2014 with the follow up of Pull in winter of 2014. Both of those novels made my top favorite books of the year. They were both six star reviews. The writing was beyond excellent and delivered in quite a different manner than most novels. The story was delivered from multiple perspectives and POV's that slowly gave the readers an in depth insight on the main characters personalities and actions. It became more than a story, it became a testimony of life in all it's beauty and ugliness.
After three years of waiting for another novel from this very talented author, she has finally released a new novel, The Sound Of Light. The Sound Of Light is completely different than her previous novels and has a completely different kind tone. Where her first novels had a dark undertone, The Sound Of Light has a bright, positive quality that shines brightly through the words on the pages. The readers will become enamored with K'acy McGee because of her inner beauty. She is an angel of sorts in a very ordinary human body. God gave her an extraordinary gift that could be used with malice or compassion. It was her responsibility to look beyond the black and white and decipher the right and wrong of her gift. She knew what she was meant to do from a very young age but she had to learn how to use her gift wisely. When she fell in love it muddied her decision making process and she let her emotions drive her until she realized it was turning off her light. Now she has to choose between the man she loves and the power of her gift. The choice may send her into the darkness. Her gift was given with love and love may be the one thing that destroys her.
The writing in this novel is beyond superb. Reader's get to know K'acy and experience her gift from multiple POV's. They also get to know her through her personal POV and understand how music soothes her soul. She is one of those characters that shines brightly even in the darkest moments. Although this novel is not as dark with a sinister plot, it is still very complex and the revelations of K'acy McGee are astonishing.
Claire Wallis has once again used her gift of storytelling in an original way that will keep the readers glued to the pages. I highly recommend reading The Sound Of Light.
