    This novel has many real life topics and events, and is an excellent read for those who enjoy true life stories.

    Songs Without Words is a touching story about family and the trying times many families go through. The two main characters Liz, an artsy mother and loving wife, and Sarabeth, a single but proud woman, have been friends since thier middle school carrers. Now grown and approaching middle age, they both are going through somewhat of a midlife crisis. Sarabeth has just gotten out of a relationship with a man she was deeply in love with. The only problem is that he was a married man. Now Liz on the other hand seemed like her life was flowing smoothly. Her marriage was good and she had two children in high school. Her son Joe played varsity lacrosse and was doing pretty good in school. Her daughter Lauaren was a different story all together. She was struggling not only in school but also in other aspects of her life. Lauren was having trouble coping with the difficulties in her life and ended up resorting to drastic measures. If you are interseted in knowing more about finding out what happens to Lauren, her mom, and Sarabeth I suggest puting Songs Without Words on your list of to read books.

    Couldn't Put it Down

    Songs Without Words was a touching novel about the strength of childhood friendship that creates somewhat of a family bond. I loved the characters in this book, Packer did a wonderful job giving insight into their lives and minds and at the end of the book you're left wishing to know more about these characters and how the rest of their lives turn out.
