An uplifting story about the importance of family, the power of music, and the ever-present mercy of God.
"I could hear my heart-beat in spite of the commotion and noise. I'd never seen anything so horrible...What's wrong with me? I thought. I knew everything had gone black and silent, but I couldn't remember why. I could hear now, but was still surrounded by darkness."
Gabrielle Larson is a fifteen-year-old living in Chicago with reasonable plans for her life: to follow in her parents' footsteps as a Christian musician. But when tragedy strikes, Gabrielle finds herself forced to relocate to North Dakota, where she must learn to live with the difficult reality of her past in a strange and unfamiliar place.
Years pass as Gabrielle not only fights to accept the aftermath of what's happened, but also to survive on a farm full of horses, cows, Uncle Will, and Aunt Bea. Enduring nature's windstorms and the loneliness of grief, she struggles to heal, and even finds herself face-to-face with the possibility of love in the most unexpected place. But the darkness is real and her heartache profound--will she ever emerge from the noisy past to catch the redemptive tune of the present?
