Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through Tyndale House book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.

The Song is a fictional story about a man who holds onto his music and plans of fame, but tries to get as far away from the legacy of his father as he can. It is also about a woman who holds onto her father and the family’s vineyard, but pushes her husband away as she refrains from her encouragement of his career. Both become blinded to the truth, especially when temptation and sin comes into the picture. They will only be saved from all of this if they keep focused on God and not the world around them.
The Song was a page-turner for me. The only thing that stopped me from continuing to turn the pages throughout the night was my eyes closing. This was a well-written story which kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what each character would do and hoping for the happiness of both. Each main character is well-defined in the story with chapters allowing the reader to get to know them one-at-a-time. There are likenesses in the story to that of events or circumstances which are talked about also in the Bible. Even though this was a fictional story it caused me to reflect upon my own marriage relationship.
I highly recommend The Song to all readers!
