ABOUT THE BOOK
If you would like to read the first chapter of Then Sings My Soul, go HERE.
This book was AMAZING....the best book I've read in some time.
As you read the book goes from Nel's voice to her father's which takes you back to the twentieth century Europe. I did not find the switching of time periods confusing, it all flowed extremely well.
I felt horror, overwhelming sadness, and glimmers of hope while reading. Sad for Jakob's haunting past, the past that has kept him trapped his entire life. Sad for Nel as she struggles with losing her mom and finding her dad to be terribly frail and at the end of his life as well. Even so, Nel finishes what her mom has started and helps her dad heal. Nel also finds a way to heal from her past as well.
This book will make you think and you will go through all sorts of feelings, despite the sadness I'd call this book a 'must read' and I will most certainly read previous stories as well as future stories by Amy Sorrellus, I just wonder why it has taken me so long to discover her.
