***** 5 STARS
Reading an Amy Harmon book is like opening a gift, and THE SONG OF DAVID was an especially lovely one.
Like most gifts, the early anticipation that happens when you begin to remove the wrapping is the sweetest part. Knowing from page one that something has happened to Tag creates a sense of urgency that immediately had me invested. The structure of the story adds to the push and pull of tension and relief, as Harmon alternates between Moses’ point of view and Tag’s. With Moses, the reader is immersed in the worry and fear as he and Millie, along with Tag’s large group of friends, try to find out what has happened to him and why he left so suddenly. With Tag’s point of view, the reader is treated to a tender, poignant re-telling of his love story with Millie.
One of my favorite things about this book was seeing Tag turn into David… finding out that beneath that fighter persona was a kind and gentle man, who could love and appreciate the strength and beauty of a woman who saw more in him without the benefit of sight than most people did with two functioning eyes.
It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend this book. This highly emotional and deeply satisfying love story will stay with you long after the last page.
