Review: The Song

The Song
The Song by Chris Fabry

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book was well written but just not my normal fare and it just seemed so sad to me. I know it's about redemption and forgiveness but I just didn't enjoy it. Like, I said though, it is very well written and will keep your attention if you don't mind the story line.

Jed King is the son of a famous singer. His father and mother made mistakes in their past and have both turned to God for forgiveness and redemption. Jed knows what happened in their lives and wants to avoid going down that path. He feels like he is on the right path when he meets Rose. They fall madly in love and get married. Then the song he wrote on his honeymoon becomes an almost overnight sensation and the life of a touring musician takes it toll on his home life. He faces the same temptations that lured his father so many years ago. Will he go down that path? Will it take a near tragedy to wake him up?
