With the help of her former high school sweetheart, Laura searches for the truth. But will what they find destroy their rekindled feelings?
My Review: A Stillness of Chimes has a mysterious aura. The words and descriptions used are lyrical and beautiful. The thing I really enjoyed about this author was the way she wrote. Her writing was so natural and flowing and mysterious. A lot of authors seem to have to force mystery like that into their words. But I did not sense that Moseley had to.
A Stillness of Chimes surprised me by its emotion and depth. I had never even heard of Meg Moseley before I read this book. I wasn’t quite sure about it at first, but the more I read, the more intrigued I came. It was an excellent book with a unique plotline. Forgiveness is the overlying theme. Not allowing fear to control you was perhaps the sub-theme. A Stillness of Chimes also teaches what the price of adultery is. The characters were so well-written that they felt real. I rarely come across books where I feel as though the characters are so real. I wondered dubiously at the name of the book before I read it. But it actually fits perfectly.
This novel also surprised me by the many plot twists it took. Most of them were near the ending. I didn’t even guess it would end the way it did. It’s kind of a sad ending. But it makes sense. The romantic tension between the main characters—Laura and Sean—was almost tangible. It added a sweet underlying current to the book.
One thing the author could have been a little clearer on was the presentation of the gospel. She spoke of the blood of Christ and altar calls and such but never actually presented the entire gospel message. At least, not that I found.
In its entirety, A Stillness of Chimes was a wonderful read. The storyline and characters drew me in and held me captive until the final words. I would definitely recommend this book to anybody who likes a little mystery and a sweet, clean romance. I will be looking for more books by Meg Moseley in the future.
I give A Stillness of Chimes 4 out of 5 stars.
