"Even in the darkest night, a star will shine.
A bell will chime. A path will be revealed."
I was drawn to take notes as Mary Ehrenworth taught me this summer at the TCWRP Reading Institute to hold onto this story:
I wonder about reading this book to my 3rd graders...it is long, 587 pages. It does deal with sad times in our history. But it is filled with characters that persevere and overcome struggle and value music.
Now I can't wait for January 4th when school is back open so I can begin this read-aloud!
I am glad to be connected again to this amazing author.
She truly has outdone herself with this novel of so many genres woven together with music.

I thought I was going to write about my 2015 OLW - responsiveness - today and reflect on my 2016 OLW - transparency ...next Tuesday!!
Today, my thoughts are echoing and I feel moved to go buy a harmonica!!
And I also want to TALK to someone who has read this book. Have you?
Maybe a virtual book club on twitter soon.
Favorite parts, favorite characters, music....so much to discuss.
Let me know if you are interested!!
