“Then Sings My Soul”: a touching novel about loss, grief, and forgiveness. “Then Sings My Soul” is the creation of published author Doreen L. Hatton, a Canadian-born widowed mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who grew up in a large family.

Hatton shares, “Overhead, the clouds were dark and ominous. As if on cue, just as Bishop Brown stepped forward to begin the graveside service, the sky ripped open, and the rain poured down upon the mourners, stinging their legs and arms under their umbrellas. The funeral directors had covered Lily and her children with a blanket to keep the water from soaking them, as they sat together under a canopy set up in the graveyard.
The April rain drenched Lily to her very soul. The scene before them had a sense of unreality to it. The shiny bronze casket before her held the body of her husband, Samuel. Samuel, so sweet and loving, so full of life, lay before them in that hateful box. Oh, Samuel, this just can’t be happening!
The graveside service was about to begin. Lily tried to concentrate on what was being said, but her thoughts carried her back to the last time she saw her husband alive.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Doreen L. Hatton’s new book is a gripping, realistic portrait of heartache and the process of healing, which in cases of tragedy often only truly begins at the moment of forgiveness.

As the family work their healing through their music and Aaron serves probation and community service, readers will discover God working through the power of music to heal their fractured lives.
