Overview

The stalwart saint fighting for faith...
the redeemed rebel, fighting for honor.

After Dirk rescues Gwyneth from the Iconoclastic Fury, she discovers that faith is sometimes fragile and hope is not as easy as it may seem. Now truly orphaned yet surrounded by friends and the man she loves, Gwyneth continues her quest to learn more about the love of God preached by Protestants she once distrusted.

Dirk's quest is to prevent his sullied name from staining hers. But when his past looms over him, he knows he must leave, for the protection of Gwyneth and his family. He can only pray that his decision won't see the end of her first steps toward God.

With enemies at work to keep them apart and bring the unforgiving law down upon them, will Dirk and Gwyneth's searching hearts ever again sing the same song?

Usually Book 2 of a series features a new hero and heroine, but in the case of The Sound of Silver, readers find themselves still following Gwyn and Dirk. Sometimes I prefer moving on to a new story through fresh eyes, but I was thrilled to find their story was far from over. It picked up right where we left off and took my breath with it. This was a beautiful and emotional read for me. It brought tears to my eyes and a smile to my heart with its sweet, romantic tale of faith and forgiveness. While the first book ended with satisfying closure, I hadn’t realized then just what was ahead for these fictional friends of mine. There is still much for them to learn about themselves, about each other, and about their God. Readers will be satisfied to find more of the romantic tension, deep faith, and surprising plot twists they’ve come to expect from this author. It’s not really a stand-alone. You really need to have read The Sound of Diamonds to fully appreciate the characters and the journey that’s brought them to the first page of The Sound of Silver. The story will mean much more to you, I promise. The setting of this series and its time period is very vivid and fascinating. It really adds to the overall story. I can’t imagine where the story is going to go from here, but I can’t wait! What more can I say? I was happy every time I settled in to read more of this story. I do warn you, though… the last page will undoubtedly leave you thirsting for more. ;) Happy Reading! This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the author for my copy.

The Sound of Silver is book two in the Steadfast Love series and begins immediately following book one, The Sound of Diamonds. This story is beautifully written, rich in detail, and emotionally charged! There is a theme that flows throughout the book. It is of surrender. At some points, it is the surrendering of what the character wants most, and at other times, it is the growth in faith of learning to surrender to God. I loved the emotion in this story! It was hard to see the main characters going through the tough times that occurred, but it was necessary to the plot. The additional, new characters that are introduced in The Sound of Silver added much interest, as well. I am on pins and needles to see what happens in book three. I absolutely loved the last few chapters of the novel and look forward to visiting with these characters again in the final book of the series. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Although Gwyn and Dirk love each other, they still have a lot of problems to overcome if they are ever to marry. First of all, Dirk is still being blamed for the murder of Gwyn’s parents and it will take a bit more than Gwyn’s testimony to clear him of the charge. Then, Dirk decides it would be safer for Gwyn if he left the country, drawing away the danger. Will their love and newfound faith survive the challenges ahead? The second book in the Steadfast Love Series by Rachelle Rea, The Sound of Silver continues Gwyn and Dirk’s story. Love, danger, and even suffering mold the lives of the characters as they reach out to each other and do their best to follow God’s will for their lives. And finally, their hardships pay off with a joyous ending. Gwyn and Dirk spend a good portion of the book apart, trying to complete their goals and just survive. It is pretty sad for their romance, as they miss each other dreadfully most of the time, but it gives the author a chance to introduce another handsome gentleman who has known Gwyn all her life and been in love with her for just as long. This of, course, adds a new level of interest to the novel as you wonder whether Gwyn will eventually fall in love with him instead. A good thing that I noticed was that Gwyn grew so much during this novel. Much of her trauma and grief healed throughout the story. She had other problems to deal with, but she became more stable and confident as a person as well as growing in her faith under the mentorship of an older Christian woman. On a different note, the setting was obviously well-researched. The historical details of the country’s laws and government, the religious turmoil, the medicine technology, and many other small details makes the story come alive within the culture—as least, as much as it can since no one alive today has actually experienced it. Overall, The Sound of Silver was a lovely historical romance. I look forward to reading the third book in this series and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a historical romance—starting with book one, of course! I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The Plot {5 stars} – As far as the plot line went, The Sound of Silver continually drew me in and led me deeper into the lives of the characters. Rachelle made me feel torn with grief along side the characters as they experienced sorrow, separation, betrayal, and resentment; I also felt their joy as love, forgiveness, truth, and hope was showered upon them. Will Dirk and Gwyn be together again? Will Dirk’s past cause Gwyn to be unsafe? What is the sound of Silver? Oh, those questions will keep you on the edge of your seat until the end of the book. The Characters {5 stars} – I was happy to see more of Joseph in the story, and more of Cade and Margried. Gwyn began the new book with her prayer from in the dungeons of last book changing her life in ways she didn’t foresee. Her hope and faith in God are strengthened and her questions do not cease, they grow deeper and her quest for Truth had only just started. I loved meeting Dirk’s family, and especially his mother who reminded me of my own. My complaint last book was not getting to hear from the supporting characters as much; my elation with this book is that Rachelle introduced us to new characters, and gave us much insight into the lives of those we met in Diamonds. Dirk, still headstrong at first, sort of made me upset (and according to the story, I wasn’t the only girl who felt this way!) with his stubborn decisions, but in the end, God worked a change into his life, and I was joyful. :) The Lessons {5 stars} – All the characters dealt with an abundance of varied emotions. Each one was at a different place in their search for God. The lessons that Rachelle wove into the story, whether whispered tenderly from Dirk’s mother or kindly spoken from Brother Joseph, were rich and powerful. The newly blossomed faith of Gwyn brought her hope in the midst of her sorrow and restlessness. Dirk found that the love of Christ never fails, no matter what his past may have been…and that sometimes, choosing what we want to do isn’t always a bad thing when it follows along with God’s plan. The truth woven in this story is beautiful, and probably my favorite part of the Sound of Silver. Overall rating: {5 stars} – Someone summed up this book well, “If hope sounded like diamonds, surely truth sounded like silver.” Truth surely radiated and sparkled like silver in this golden sequel. The story tugged at my heart, whispering truth and sprinkling joy and hope. The ending was romantic and beautiful, just the way I hoped. I sincerely can’t wait to see how Rachelle is going to top this book with her last book in the series, The Sound of Emeralds! Age recommendation: {Read aloud – 10 and up} {Self Read – 12 and up}: There is romance in the story, so please keep that in mind when reading to younger audiences. The violence isn’t present as much, but references to the bloodshed in the other book are present.

Rachelle's done it again with this superb sequel to The Sound of Diamonds. Continuing the story of Gwyn and Dirk, the story takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions. The back cover blurb above hints at a separation--and how. The depth Rachelle has poured into her characters as they both wrestle with their newfound faith and hearts broken by love is immense. The same supporting cast of characters as in Silver, as well as Dirk's mother and two sisters and a new man on the scene who is not all that he seems. What I loved about Silver was that, while there was certainly less action and adventure compared to Diamonds, Rachelle maintained the pace and nothing lagged at all. It was refreshing, the slight change of pace, because as the reader is immersed into Gwyn and Dirk's world, we get to see more vividly how they process everything and grow individually and together. This book has an especially happy ending. I can't give it away, but I will say one thing--don't rush through the reading to get to the end. Enjoy the rich imagery of the story, the journey the characters take, and the love of God that surpasses all understanding woven through every page.

Rachelle’s writing has gotten even better with this book. Her words soar off the page with grace. Dirk is such a strong character and cares for Gwyn so much he is willing to sacrifice his feelings for her. The way he tries to push back his feelings broke my heart every time. Gwyn is searching for who God really is. What can she believe? What can she trust? She thought she could trust her uncle and she was hurt by him. If you enjoyed Rachelle first book you will love catching up with these characters again and joining them on this new journey. However, I do think you could read the second book and figure out what is going without reading the first if you didn’t get around to it. A copy of this book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
