Songs of Deliverance
Deliverance is something I rarely think about but this book was a beautiful tribute to the songs we hold in ourselves and the songs we make in our hearts. I got the book free and thought - I am not a Christian will I like it? And will it be preachy and turn me off? It was a resounding no! I was captured by the first chapter then couldn’t put the book down.
I cried a lot for I felt the pain the characters felt. I also cried also because I felt their joy. The author made me want to continue to hop...more

Songs of Deliverance by Marilynn Griffin continues the story of Zeely, Ron, Grace and Brian and all the other people who interact in their lives from Griffin's novel Rhythms of Grace. This novel ties together all the stories that left readers wanting more. It can be read and easily understood as a stand alone book as well.
Zeely and Ron face the fact that they are both in love with each other, yet they are engaged to other people. Their relationship is one of loss and heartache, yet a ...more
The book is a sequel - to Rhythm of Grace (see below for info about this book), but billed as a "stand alone" novel. Honestly, I think that billing is a disservice to the reader, and to Griffith.
I spent the first half of the book trying to figure ...more

Took me a while to get into. Initially, I thought the beginning chapters jumped around a lot leaving me disoriented since so many things were being alluded to that weren't explained. Then FINALLY, I realized that this is book 2 or a sequel to Rhythms of Grace.
Ok so pause....
Go read Rhythms of Grace first, then read Songs of Deliverance. ¿Much better, right?
I wish I'd known that from the start. Note to the author to make that much clearer next time. ...more
If you've read Rhythms of Grace you do not want to stop there!! I went directly from one right into the other and it was like watching a wonder mini series. Songs of Deliverance is sure to cause a tear or two to fall from your reading eyes but the fulfillment of reading is watching how deliverance takes place. You will not be disappointed if you grab both Songs of Deliverance and Rhythms of Grace!
I have read many books and this book moved me more than anything I have ever read. What an awesome writer. The first book was beautiful the sequel was just so emotional. She is a Christian writer but she wrote with passion and truth verses several Christian writers who have written for years. You nailed it out the park. Keeping writing....
