The Song by Chris Fabry

The Song by Chris Fabry (Based on the motion picture screenplay by Richard L. Ramsey) is an emotionally charged novel based on the life of Solomon and the Song of Solomon.
From the back cover:
Jed King's life has been shaped and scarred by the songs and mistakes of his famous father. He wants to sing his own song, but the words and melody are elusive. Jed's dream of a successful music career seem out of reach...until he meets Rose.
Inspired by his love for the vineyard owner's daughter, Jed pens a new song--a song with such emotional power and longing that it catapults him into stardom. But with this life of fame comes temptation, the same temptation that lured his father so many years ago and now threatens to unravel his marriage.
The pull of "The Song" takes Jed and Rose on a journey that will force them to deal with failure, the pain of loss, and the desire to be who God created them to be. Together they will test the limits of the promise that love is the power that heals.
Lyrical and deeply honest, The Song asks hard questions of love and forgiveness. When even the wisest of men is a fool for love, can true love persevere?

My thoughts:
Raw and deeply honest, this book offers thought provoking situations and real-life issues that will have the reader on the edge of their seat. I read this in a few hours in between housework and life. I ached for Rose and Jed and cheered them on towards the end.

Some parts of this book might be a little too much for readers who blush easily (it is based on Song of Solomon), others will think it's mild.

I enjoyed my time with this book and look forward to viewing the movie when it comes out on DVD in February 2015.
