Book Review Thursday

I had the great privilege of reading a draft of Meg's Melody by Kaylee Baldwin awhile ago. I can honestly say I couldn't put it down then and still couldn't put it down this time around. This story is a wonderful journey. Now that I've had my little boy, I can relate to it even more. I loved seeing the growth of the story and in turn the final product. Kaylee has a way with words that pull the reader into the story. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

Here's the back cover blurb. Take a look and let me know what you think!

She paced the small confines of her bathroom as she waited the obligatory two minutes for the result. Yet, part of her sensed the truth. Not only did Austin take her self-esteem and plans for happiness, but he also took her get-out-of-this-marriage-free card.

The plus sign glared at Meg from the white plastic frame of the pregnancy test. The test fell from her hands and clattered into the bathtub as Meg’s back slid against the wall until she reached the floor.

“I’m pregnant,” she said into the quiet.

Meg never imagined she'd end up like this. With nowhere else to turn, she's forced to rely on the family she pushed away, the church she abandoned, and an unexpected friendship to help her find her forgotten melody. Meanwhile Matt is still mourning the loss of his wife. But determined to keep things together for his daughter's sake, he decides starting over in a new place might be just what his family needs.

This touching story combines romance with redemption and real conflict to remind you it's never too late to find joy. Kaylee Baldwin's capable hand renders a sincere, heartfelt story of rediscovery and hope. Perfect for romantics of all ages, this book will captivate your heart and rekindle your belief in the magic of music.
