Can't Wait Wednesday-Song of Silence

 Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Typically they are books that have not been released yet. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This week I am showcasing a book that has been out since 2016, but I didn't know it existed until this week. That counts, right? I can't wait to read it and don't know when/if I will be able to get a copy of it. The book is called Song of Silence and it is written by Cynthia Ruchti. I have only read one of her other works, but I LOVED it and found it deeply moving, which is why I can't wait to read this one.

  
Isn't the cover gorgeous?
 
About the book (from Goodreads):
 
Lucy and Charlie Tuttle agree on one thing: they're committed to each other for life. Trouble is, neither of them expected life to look like this. While Charlie retired early, Lucy is devoted to a long-term career . . . until the day she has no choice.

Forced to retire from her position as music educator in a small Midwestern K-8 school, Lucy can only watch helplessly as the program her father started years ago disintegrates before her eyes. As the music fades and a chasm separates her from the passion of her heart, Lucy wonders if her faith's song has gone silent, too. The musical score of her life seems to be missing all the notes.

When a simple misstep threatens to silence Lucy forever, a young boy and his soundless mother change the way she sees--and hears--everything.
