Product Description

Jed King’s life has been shaped by the songs and mistakes of his famous father. He wants to sing his own song, but the words and melody are elusive. Haunted by the scars inflicted by his broken family, Jed’s dreams of a successful music career seem out of reach . . . until he meets Rose.

As romance quickly blooms, Jed pens a new song and suddenly finds himself catapulted into stardom. But with this life of fame comes temptation, the same temptation that lured his father so many years ago.

Set in the fertile mid-South, this quest for success leads Jed and Rose on a journey that will force them to deal with the pain of loss, failure, and the desire to be who God created them to be.

Lyrical and deeply honest, The Song asks the hard questions of love and forgiveness. When even the wisest of men are fools in love, can true love persevere?

“She didn’t want the separation that success bred, but she also wanted Jed to be who God had created him to be. To sing the songs he’d been given and make beauty from the pain of life,” realizes Rose in Chris Fabry’s novel, "The Song." At four hundred and forty pages, this paperback targets those who enjoy romantic fiction surrounding country music. With no profanity, topics of drugs, alcohol, and marital infidelity may not be appropriate for immature readers. A dozen color photographs from the movie are inserted in the book. After the epilogue, the authors’ biographies, a dozen discussion questions, and a preview of five days of a corresponding couple’s devotional are included. The New International Version of the Holy Bible is referenced. This reader wishes all pronouns of God were capitalized for reverence. Award-winning author and radio personality, Fabry has written more than seventy books for children and adults. His wife and he have nine children and live in Arizona. This is Ramsey’s first feature film as a writer-director. He and his wife have four children. In this tale based on the motion picture screenplay, Jed King rises in fame and fortune, climbing the country music charts with his songs of brokenness from his heart. Repeating choices related to his father’s past, he portrays a Christian image but falters when it comes to his marriage and relationship with God. Rose, the woman who changed Jed’s world drastically when he wrote a song about her, thought there would be a happily-ever-after. Initially, she agrees to leave her father’s vineyard to launch Jed’s musical career but finds their love growing distant. On the road without his wife, Jed succumbs to a fellow musician’s advances and falls for the tricks and ploys of a worldly life of sex and drug abuse. It is only when he understands he could lose it all that he accepts his mistakes and wants to change. Predictable yet tender, the love story that bonds two individuals through thick and thin overcomes the trappings of the music industry. Readers will walk away learning of forgiveness and God’s enduring love no matter how badly one messes up his or her life. Thanks to the Book Club Network and Tyndale House for furnishing this complimentary book in exchange for a review based on the reader’s honest opinions.
