Reader Review: “The characters are complex and believable. Sam’s journey, from despair to hope to triumph, is moving and emotional. Souders’ descriptions of the guitar and the music were exquisite and I felt like I could almost hear Sam playing her guitar. I urge T.M. Souders to consider a sequel, as I grew attached to these characters and am eager to see what the future holds.” Nancy Wood

Since the tender age of eight, music served as Samantha Becker’s source of solace against her father’s tyranny and her mother’s alcoholism. Now at eighteen, her only dream is to study classical guitar at Juilliard. But when her father’s careless actions lead to an “accident,” which threatens her ability to play the guitar, Sam becomes despondent. Losing all confidence in her future, Sam hides behind the emotional barriers that have protected her for years.
Just when Sam has given up, two unexpected people enter her life, giving her the confidence she needs and forcing her to evaluate all she’s ever known. Battling her father’s plans for her future, band mates using her for personal gain, and a permanent injury, the odds are stacked against her. With auditions approaching and time running out, Sam must relearn to play the guitar, or be destined to give up her dreams forever.
