When selecting a book for teen age girls to read, Melody Carlson is always an excellent author choice. Her newest book, A Simple Song, certainly will be one you and your teen will not want to miss.
Katrina is a young Amish girl, who discovers there is much about her Mammi that she never knew. Katrina has always loved to sing, and had been told that she had a beautiful voice. But, because she is Amish, she isn’t permitted to call attention to herself with her singing, so she sings just when she is alone when outside working around the farm. Then her Mammi dies, and she is given a wooden chest that has been nailed shut. What that chest contains leads her to audition for a television show. Not very Amish!
However, there is a very important lesson she must learn, and this is a way she can help her Daed when no one else can. How will this sheltered Amish girl get along in, of all places, Hollywood? Could this be where God wants her to be? What about the gift from her grandmother? Could this very unusual gift be the means to help her family in a serious financial crisis? The answers to these questions provide the reader with some guidelines to make their own decisions more Christ-centered.
I am certain that you will enjoy A Simple Song as much as I did. Melody Carson is an awesome author that leaves me glad to have read her new books!
