"Return of the Song," the first installment in the captivating ROCKWATER SUITE series by Phyllis Clark Nichols, is an absolute gem. From the moment I started reading, I was swept away by the lyrical prose and the enchanting world Nichols has created.

The characters in "Return of the Song" are richly developed and wonderfully relatable. Caroline, the protagonist, is a talented pianist whose journey of healing and rediscovery is both poignant and inspiring. The supporting cast, including her friends and family, add depth and warmth to the story, making it feel like a real community.

The narrative is both engaging and deeply moving. Caroline’s journey back to music after a personal tragedy is handled with sensitivity and grace. The plot is well-paced, with just the right mix of conflict, romance, and hope. I found myself emotionally invested in Caroline’s story and rooting for her every step of the way.

Phyllis Clark Nichols has a lyrical writing style that enhances the reading experience. Her ability to convey emotion through her prose is truly remarkable. The musical references and metaphors are beautifully done, making "Return of the Song" a joy to read for anyone who appreciates the arts.

Overall, "Return of the Song" is a touching and beautifully written book that sets a high standard for the rest of the ROCKWATER SUITE series. It’s a story about finding your way back to your passions and the power of love and community in healing old wounds. Highly recommended for everyone ! ( )

Stop! Before you read further, go back up to the description of the book and look at the category once again. Yes, there’s a hint of romance in Return of the Song but this book is ALL about Caroline Carlyle and her journey from the haze of mourning.

There is a lot happening in this book. It’s part introduction to the small Georgia town, part romance, part mystery, and part music. Some of the book gets bogged down in details and some of the scenes probably could have been left out but overall, it gives readers a good look into Caroline’s life. The one where she is going through the motions despite the people surrounding her.

Phyllis Clark Nichols touches on the power of music—how one can get lost in it whether listening or playing, how creatives thrive in it. She also offers readers a taste of life in the South—much of it occurring around the table.

This is a long read (400 pages) that sometimes drags through the minutia of everyday life as much of the book takes place over about three months. Sometime the characters come across as a little unbelievable but at the same time, Caroline’s gentle spirit and kindness toward others is something we should all aspire to.

There are unresolved issues at the end of Return of the Song (don’t fret, there’s another book coming next year) but Caroline’s new outlook on her life gives me hope for the things to come.

Reminiscent of Jan Karon's Mitford series, Phyllis Clark Nichols has woven a beautiful story with remarkable depth, gorgeous scenery and food description, and a small town filled with lovable, zany characters. While there is a romantic thread throughout the story, the main focus is the character development and the issues that Caroline deals with in the small town of Moss Point, Georgia. I would greatly recommend this book for readers of the Mitford series, as well as readers of Debbie Macomber and Southern fiction.

Please note, I received an ARC of this book and was not required to leave a positive review. ( )

The author gives us a book that begins in tragedy and ends with hope, but we are reading the in between, and it kept me page turning.
The main character has a heart for her fellow man, and has been given the gift of making awesome music by way of her piano.
Add in a plethora of other characters that will warm your heart, and some will make you laugh, all to support a wonderful read.
There was a time in the book that I was hoping that the break in was David, but that was not to be and it opened a whole new dimension to this read.
When Caroline moves out of the studio, I would love to move in, the descriptions of this place are awesome, and the couple who own it were wonderful!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Gilead and was not required to give a positive review. ( )
