Lost Melody by Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith

From the back cover:

The beautiful piano sitting in the corner of Jill King’s apartment begs to be played. For over a year, it has sat untouched, ever since a terrible accident shattered Jill’s ambition of becoming a concert pianist. The ragged scar on her left hand is a cruel and constant reminder of the death of her dream. But another dream is about to come to life—an unexpected, horrifying dream that will present Jill with a responsibility she never wanted. And choices she never wanted to make. Hundreds of lives depend on Jill’s willingness to warn her small, oceanside town in Nova Scotia of a nameless, looming disaster. But doing so could cost Jill her reputation, jeopardize the political career of the man she loves, and ruin their plans for a future together. The fate of an entire community hangs in the balance as Jill wrestles with the cost of heeding one still, small voice.

My Review:

This was the first book I read from either authors and I really enjoyed it. It was a fast read for me and found the story to move quickly. It drew me in from the first chapter and I could not wait to find out what happens next. I was expecting to like the book, but not as much I did. In the end I found that loved the book. The characters in this book are well developed and are easy to like and want the best for them.

This story has great lessons dealing the fact that God's plan is not your plan and that when you don't follow it you may have to learn the hard way. This books also deals with post traumatic stress disorder and how it really can paralyze people and make it very hard to move forward and fully heal.

This is a 5 star book for anyone who likes to read inspirational contemporary books.

I received this book from Zondervan in exchange for my honest review. Thank you Zondervan!


  1. I have never been disappointed in a book by Lori Copeland, but I'm not as familiar with Virginia.
    The blurb on the book makes me want to grab it off the shelf and read it. Your review on adds to my desire to read it.
