Usually Book 2 of a series features a new hero and heroine, but in the case of The Sound of Silver, readers find themselves still following Gwyn and Dirk. Sometimes I prefer moving on to a new story through fresh eyes, but I was thrilled to find their story was far from over. It picked up right where we left off and took my breath with it.
This was a beautiful and emotional read for me. It brought tears to my eyes and a smile to my heart with its sweet, romantic tale of faith and forgiveness.
While the first book ended with satisfying closure, I hadn’t realized then just what was ahead for these fictional friends of mine. There is still much for them to learn about themselves, about each other, and about their God. Readers will be satisfied to find more of the romantic tension, deep faith, and surprising plot twists they’ve come to expect from this author.
It’s not really a stand-alone. You really need to have read The Sound of Diamonds to fully appreciate the characters and the journey that’s brought them to the first page of The Sound of Silver. The story will mean much more to you, I promise.
The setting of this series and its time period is very vivid and fascinating. It really adds to the overall story. I can’t imagine where the story is going to go from here, but I can’t wait!
What more can I say? I was happy every time I settled in to read more of this story. I do warn you, though… the last page will undoubtedly leave you thirsting for more. 😉 Happy Reading!
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the author for my copy.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The stalwart saint, fighting for faith… the redeemed rebel, fighting for honor.
After Dirk rescues Gwyneth from the Iconoclastic Fury, she discovers that faith is sometimes fragile—and hope is not as easy as it may seem. Gwyneth continues her quest to learn more about the love of God preached by Protestants she once distrusted.
Meanwhile, Dirk’s quest is to prevent his sullied name from staining hers. Will his choice to protect her prove the undoing of her first faltering steps toward a Father God? Once separated, will Dirk and Gwyneth’s searching hearts ever sing the same song?
Rachelle Rea plots her novels while driving around the little town she’s lived in all her life in her dream car, a pick-up truck. An Oreo addict, she is also a homeschool graduate and retired gymnast. She wrote the Sound of Diamonds the summer after her sophomore year of college.
