Skye Garvin's voice sang the words that came straight from her heart . . . Every life must have a song. Whether it was singing to the patients at a local hospital or teaching her students at the school, Skye tried to touch everyone she met with a spark of joy.

Skye's enthusiasm was always contagious until she met Jordan Kiley, a successful record producer and, temporarily, a patient at the hospital. Was he really immune to Skye's charms, or was there another reason for the suspicion she read in his steely gray gaze?

Though Skye believed in miracles, she had never before encountered a challenge as handsome and perplexing as Jordan Kiley.

I agree with a previous reviewer, this should have been listed under Christian literature...if it could be called literature.
I find it impossible to believe that anyone, even a Christian, could be as naive as Skye. Especially considering the fact that she'd been married once before.
I realize that reading fiction should take us away from our everyday lives, and be somewhat of a fantasy...but this one was just too sappy to get interested in.
Since this was one of Macomber's first books, if not the first, I'm surprised she ever got another book deal.
Sadly disappointed.
I have always enjoyed Debbie Macomber's books, especially the Cedar Cove series. This story was good but this was just TOO heavy-handed with the religion. The male characters conversion was also too quick to be believable. This book would have been better classified as Christian fiction. I know there was a brief mention of "difference of faith" in the blurb but I wish it had been more clear on just how much preaching was involved.
This book was originally published in 1984 and the story is typical for that era. It seemed to be more of a sermon to invitation to join Christianity than a love story. A volunteer and teacher at a San Francisco hospital falls in love with a wealthy man and their relationship is hampered by lies and, supposedly, his lack of religious intent. But she was not honest about her identity and he was not honest about his. She was not honest about why she broke the engagement and did not return until he accepted her faith. I found it very hypocritical in its approach and was not very comfortable with the story at all.
I liked it that there were no graphic love scenes. In most romance novels, that seems to be of paramount importance.
I did not like that Skye lied about her undying love for Glen in order for her to break off with Jordan. She was so big on honesty from him, and she was even more dishonest and outright lied to Jordan. I don't call that a Christian action. And she was so big on being a follower of Christ. I don't think Christ would have approved of her lying. Of course, it gave the book another twist and that apparently was the intention of Ms Macomber. But a different twist would have been preferred, so that Skye could have been true and consistent in her religious beliefs.
I have read many of Debbie Macomber's books, but this one was not my favorite. It was over the top with religious messages, and even though I am also Christian, I found it to be a bit in your face. Also, the author must not have talked to any real teachers before writing this novel. I am a teacher, and none of my teacher friends have the time or energy to go and volunteer in a hospital after work. Nor do we leave right after the students get out of school after just "tidying up a few papers." I generally enjoy the human drama and relationships in her books, but this one came up short for me.
I have read other Debbie Macomber books and have enjoyed them, but this one was too predictable, character development was in spurts, and all in all disappointing. I don't have any objection to Christian books, as I am a Christian, but this one was too heavy-handed and not what I thought I ordered. I never read reviews by others, but this time I wish I had. A waste of time, when there are so many well-structured books out there to read with interesting characters that develop with the story and are also believable.
I am nit quite sure what the title ha I do with the story. It could work for any romance, however it may relate to the choir the main the fact that the heroine was in the church choir and as g to patients as part of her volunteer work at the hospital and in the church choir. The conflict revolved around a man falling in love with her a d her inner conflict about living and trusting someone again after a man has said he lived her was unfaithful.
I didn't like this book at all. I am a religious person but when I am reading a romance novel I expect romance. This book delivered luke warm Christian romance and chaste kisses. The female in the story was ultra-religious while the male was agnostic. It is a book about coming to Jesus. It has made me rule out Debbie Macomber as an author I would continue to read because I am afraid of reading about God on every other page.
