Book description (from Amazon):
Jed King’s life has been shaped by the songs and mistakes of his famous father. He wants to sing his own song, but the words and melody are elusive. Haunted by the scars inflicted by his broken family, Jed’s dreams of a successful music career seem out of reach . . . until he meets Rose.
As romance quickly blooms, Jed pens a new song and suddenly finds himself catapulted into stardom. But with this life of fame comes temptation, the same temptation that lured his father so many years ago.
Set in the fertile mid-South, this quest for success leads Jed and Rose on a journey that will force them to deal with the pain of loss, failure, and the desire to be who God created them to be.
Lyrical and deeply honest, The Song asks the hard questions of love and forgiveness. When even the wisest of men are fools in love, can true love persevere?
I fell in love with the characters of this book from the beginning. It is a beautiful story of love, falling from grace, forgiveness, and power of God. While somewhat predictable, I still found myself rooting for Jed and Rose throughout the novel. I felt the heartbreak they both felt through his mistakes as well as the love they had fpr each other through it all. A story of love, hope, and redemption. Highly recommended!
