|What an incredible look into the lives of another family's life in Tabor Heights, Ohio! Ms. Levigne has certainly excelled in her telling of the stories of the Paul family's interaction with others. These relationships are sometimes new, often old, friends of those of us who follow the novels in this small town. These books show astonishing faith and service to God—this time involving Firesong.
At the beginning of this great book, we were faced with the death of Dani and Andy Paul's parents. She was nine years old. He was older and in a band which hadn't yet made a name for themselves. They stayed with their Uncle George and Aunt Betty while their parents were on the mission field. That became a permanent arrangement. Her best friend was Katie, who later became engaged to Andy.
There were two major love connections in this work of art! Dani was adamant that she would not marry—she would commit herself to God and the Band which had been named Firesong. She was thrilled that Katie and Andy fell in love. She was a little jealous but she kept that to herself. Would anybody ever want Dani? Would she ever surrender? Oh yeah, that would happen.
Michelle Levigne is not a new author to me. She is, however, one I look for often. She has this time written, in my opinion, one of her very best. The series captured my attention early and gripped my heart. This one further connected me to the small town. This singing group was dynamically-portrayed. The main characters were so full of life that they were mesmerizing. I couldn't put the book down. The inspirational parts of this book were so intriguing, I was amazed.
There were a myriad of characters whose personalities just made the storyline even more fascinating. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Without a doubt, you will absolutely love the book!
