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. Charlie retired early, but 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 single misstep threatens to silence Lucy forever, a young boy and his soundless mother change the way she sees—and hears—everything.
Song of Silence (Abingdon Press) by Cynthia Ruchti--RT REVIEWS 4.5 Stars TOP PICK! http://bit.ly/1RAajD2
“Sometimes God shatters a dream because what He will create out of the broken pieces will be far more beautiful and useful than the original. Song of Silence by Cynthia Ruchti is the glorious telling of one family’s broken dreams transformed by hope.”
--Becky Melby, The Lost Sanctuary Series
“From music education to special needs, from heartache to the reality of relationships, Cynthia Ruchti nails every note in Song of Silence with crafted precision.”
--Richard Pickrell, music education specialist, parent of a special needs child
“Cynthia Ruchti deftly depicts the feelings of unreality, depression, and the uncanny ability of life to follow up one knockout punch with a string of other shattering blows. Yet as despair hovers menacingly close in the story Song of Silence, Ruchti injects her trademark perspective of a life ‘hemmed in hope.’’
–Kathy Kexel, on-air host, 88.5 The Family Radio
“In Song of Silence, readers will ask themselves, ‘What would I do if the thing that makes me feel like I matter in life was taken away and I had to start over? Where would I find my significance?’ The scenes balance funny, fear, and futility, resulting in renewed faith.”
--Kathy Carlton Willis, author of Grin with Grace and Speaker to Speaker

Featuring HOLLY DAZE by Gina Welborn…
Lena rested her forehead against the knotty pine beam. She could leave town and no one would notice. Until they needed another cherry twig placed in holy water.
“Luck isn’t real.”
“In that, Miss Reinhardt, you are correct,” came the cynically British (Britishly cynical?) voice from somewhere behind her. “All things occur because God wills them. Rain, good and bad, et cetera et cetera.”
With an inner groan, Lena turned to face the barn wall where James Holly stood, coffee mug in right hand, flask in left, crooked grin on his handsome face. Strands of ash brown hair had loosened from his aristocratic queue. Fourth-in-line to a marquessate and a PhD in geology, not to mention a decade older than her, the fossil hunter oozed superiority and smugness—two character traits that no one else in the town seemed to mind but her.
The town’s beloved Englishman. She’d yet to hear a critical word about him. Well, save for those she uttered in her own mind.

“This collection of Christmas novellas offered eight delightful stories of romance, restoration, and renewal. This faith-based series was also laced with humor and a bit of suspense.” ~Amazon reviewer, 5*
