"Can music and medicine unite in God's harmony?"
Paul McCoy, a world-weary doctor known locally as
the 'rebellious' son and grandson of their local doctor has
come back home after offering medical help in strife-ridden
Rachel Duke, music teacher, talented gospel singer and
songwriter, asked God to send some sort of sign to guide
her about her future. So strong is her faith, she is not
surprised to look up to see Paul striding toward her. Here
is someone who needed a friend as well as the love of God.
Paul enjoyed Rachel's music, but he wasn't receptive to the
message -- or to the feelings she aroused in him. They
were just friends, weren't they? And after her accident,
he would be there for her as a doctor and a friend. But
Rachel seemingly has lost her faith... and how can he bring
back to her something he has lost himself? He knew it
would take something greater than medical expertise or
faith -- it would take a miracle.
Ms. Schmidt gave such a realistic view of some of the
emotional aspects of recovery, that I was not surprised to
read in her note to readers in the end of the book that she
had herself experienced the conflict between receiving help
and giving to those offering help. The portrayal of small
town life where it seems everyone is aware of all members
of the community was well portrayed without being
overdone. I am looking forward to visiting the town again
to read the stories involving Rachel's sisters.
Although this book is not about cancer, I thank God that
Ms. Schmidt is a cancer survivor and wish her the best in
continuing to share her stories and her faith with others.
