Such a beautiful conclusion to an emotional journey. This story rocked me. I loved watching the growth of the characters, especially Harp, grow and relationships strengthen. I felt that she was her own hero. She came to terms with so many issues. I love Connor such a great character. Unyielding. When you read a series, you become invested in the characters. I don't want to say goodbye. I hope we see more. I loved the addition of new characters, so many great ones. I am looking forward to reading ...more

There aren't many books I can sit and read in a day. I'm a little like a magpie and I get distracted way to easily! However, with Harp's Voice I sat down at 3pm and didn't put it down until I had finished reading Harp's story. It was everything I could have hoped for in a sequel and the book laid to rest any unanswered questions from Harp's Song.

When Harp's Voice starts it's been several months since the events of Harp's Song. Her mother has completed her chemotherapy, they're working through t

Finally! A happy ending! I've been through so much emotional roller coaster with the characters in this series. Harp totally deserve a happy end. So does her mother, and every other protagonists. The first book was so painful I practically curled and weep.

The writing style is still as awesome as before. Love the plot! I was confused though, at first. I'm not sure where we starts off. If it's months, years, or exactly after the first book left off. But that doesn't budge my love for this duology.

Harp's Voice was the perfect follow-up to Harp's Song. I loved seeing the growth in both Harp and her mom throughout this story. They were able to learn from the past and not let it determine their future. I also love the relationship between Harp and Connor. He has always loved and supported her. His love and friendship helped Harp during her darker days. She was able to come out of those darker days a strong young lady and finally accept their fate. I think Cassie did a wonderful job introduci ...more

What a beautiful, perfect ending to the Harp's Song duology! I loved being back with Harp and Connor, getting to know and understand Harp's mother more, and meeting the new characters. Harp's Voice pulled on my heart strings... made me laugh and tear up at times, but left me smiling in the end. ...more

I enjoyed this one a bit more than the first one.

Harp was a completely different girl to who she was in book one, and i liked her a lot more.
Her mother also changed, and it was nice to see her and Harp getting on.

There was a few parts in this where i felt a bit bored, but other than that it was an okay read. I enjoyed it slightly more than the first one, as it had less unbelievable moments, and i liked the characters more.

Overall, Okay sequel.

Loved the direction this book took with Harp going off to college and attempting to find herself. Her family dynamics were brought to the forefront in this book, which was important to see how those relationships were developed.

Book Review- Harp’s Voice by Cassie Shine
This book picks up where the first leaves off. Harp is in therapy working through her issues with her mother and her life. She is learning insight into why her mother was the way she was. She is trying to figure out where to go from here. The abuse she endured left her with scars.
Her mother has decided to change her life after getting cancer. She is trying to be a better mother and building a relationship with Harp. I like how the author shows it’s a day

I don’t even know where to begin. I loved Harp, Connor, Emma and Ethan from the first book and their story was so touching and amazing. I really had no idea where this book would lead us, especially with the way Harp’s song ended…. But oh my, Cassie Shine you have out done yourself. This book is so hard to put into words, but I will do my best.
This book takes us past high school and into college for Harp and her friends. It is the time where she is trying to move forward from her past building
Harp’s Voice by Cassie Shine is a touching and emotional story. This is book two in the series so what has caused Harp’s emotional battle has come to light already in Harp’s Song. She is a child of abuse and her mother and her have started the healing process. Harp’s Voice focuses on that process and it is interesting to read how that goes. Nobody is magically healed and I loved how the book puts emphasizes on different things, like counseling. Even if it means making a late night call to one in ...more

*This book was given to me for a fair and honest review*

Cassie Shine has made me a happy girl! I was eagerly awaiting this follow-up to Harp’s Song for what seemed like forever (even though it was a only a couple months, really). Going in, I was a little worried that the sequel would not live up to the first book for me. However, within the first chapter I was hooked, drawn back into Harp’s life and immersed in her story.

I think that what I enjoy most about Cassie Shine’s creation of Harp is t

This is the second book in the series and picks up right where the first book leaves off. Cassie Shine doesn't miss a beat on this book. She continues the story of Harp with even more emotion, and heart wrenching detail than the first book in the series.

Harp was a lot different in this book than the first book, and honestly she wasn't my favorite character. I thought she was acting like a brat, stubborn, and persnickety. If you know and understand her life up until this point I feel like she wa

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Even though this is the end to Harp's story I feel like it's just the beginning of her life. I was very excited to start Harp's Voice because I absolutely LOVED Harp's Song. Cassie Shine has a brilliant way of drawing you into a story, making you fall in love with her characters and most of all wanting more even after you have read ”THE END”.
I could tell you what the story was about but what fun will that be

This follow up to Harp's Song is all I hoped it would be! It is not often I have a hard time deciding which was the better of one and two, but honestly, these two are both wonderful!
Harp continues on her journey of growth in Harp's Voice. She has finally made it to college, he dreams are finally coming true. New friends as well as old are helping her overcome her past and look forward to a bright future. Her therapist is helping her learn to trust after the shattering childhood of abuse and ne

Oh my word Cassie did it again! LOVED this book. There was so much progression. Hearts were broken and mended. Characters grew and matured. What I love most about this book is that the focus was less Harp&Connor and more Harp&Annie. If I'm anything in the world, it's a mama's girl. So beautifully written. Such wonderful new characters introduced. Definitely left me wanting more! More Connor and Harp! More Emma and Jayden! More Ethan and Harmony! More Logan! More Annie and Family! MORE MORE MORE! ...more

This was a good ending to very well written books. I read this in one sitting which means it kept my attention. I liked seeing Harp get out on her own and discover herself without protectors. She was able to learn to trust again and make new friends. She also learned what having a mother is about. It was sweet to see Conner help her face a past she never thought was possible. Last, was seeing how strong a family can become when people forget, forgive, and try to move forward instead of back.

She has always been an avid reader and lover of music (yes, she was in the high school marching band). While she has a weak spot for all things teeny bopper especially boy bands, she also loves classical, countr ...more

“I quietly walk to my room, and keeping the door open, I pick up my cello settling it between my knees. The tips of my left hand press down on the fingerboard, while my right hand saws the bow across the strings. The notes hit the air and I shut my eyes, urging them to find their target. I want them to surround my mom and her dad, but I also want the notes to glue them together, reattach their bond. I know it can happen, and so when my calluses become useless, I keep playing. When my arm protests with fatigue, I keep playing. I keep playing because I believe.” 1 likes
