Then Sings My Soul
Doreen Hatton, author
Lily Langston's husband, Samuel, is struck by a car and killed late one night while crossing the street to his home. The driver, Aaron Turner, a fifteen-year-old, has only a learner's permit and should not have been driving alone, especially at night. Lily and her family are Christians who believe in forgiveness. The family convinces the court to give Aaron probation and community service. Fifteen-year-old Rose, however, cannot forgive and is angry because Aaron doesn't go to jail or pay for killing her dad. Lily and her girls are talented musicians. They perform often at church and community functions. While dealing with the tragedy of Samuel's death, it is discovered that Aaron also sings and plays guitar. Together they discover the joy of forgiveness, and through the power of music, their hearts are healed. This is the story of their journey.
