Write Now Literary Virtual Tours Presents: Sing a New Song by Michelle Lindo-Rice

If you found out you were dying, would you suddenly confess all your past sins?
When former chart-topper Tiffany Knightly learns that she's dying from cancer, she leaves behind her plush California lifestyle to return to Hempstead, New York, with Karlie, her reluctant teenaged daughter. Her fans think she has simply gone home to die, but Tiffany has another mission. She desperately wishes she could leave her past in the past, but in order to secure her daughter's future, she must tear open past wounds.

Life wasn't always easy for Tiffany. With a stepfather who abused her and a mother who didn't believe her, she acted out by becoming promiscuous. Fifteen years later, she's back to reveal to her ex-husband that he might not be Karlie's biological father. In fact, there are four men who could have fathered Karlie--four that she's willing to acknowledge, anyway.

As Tiffany reveals her truth and searches for Karlie's father, she reconnects with old friends and old lovers. Some reunions are happy, but some innocent lives are torn apart, leaving Tiffany to wonder if she's doing the right thing. Through it all, she will have to learn to rely on the healing power of God's unfathomable love.

My Review:

This book will bring you to tears. Ms Lindo-Rice has written such a compelling read. I could not put it down, and she made each of the Characters appear so real.
As a young girl Tiffany Knightly was betrayed by someone who was supposed to protect her, her step-father. When her mother also betrays her, and blames it all on Tiffany, what can she do. She acts out like a lot of teens would...she becomes pregnant, and does not know which of the four teens are the father.
How could a mother not be there for her child? Makes me sick!! Tiffany has been there every step of the way for her daughter Karlie. She has made the big time as a famous singer, and they are not hurting financially, but she has been given the worse news you could get. Tiffany is dying of lung cancer!
How do you tell your fifteen year old daughter you are not going to be there for her? She certainly cannot depend on the mother who betrayed her.
She does decide to go back to Hempstead NY, and look into who is her daughter's Dad?? Of the four, a few of them have made a good life, there is one, who we hope is not her Dad. One of them Thomas, did marry Tiffany and thinks he is her Dad.
We get to the core of these families, and Tiffany touches all of them. Also she is reunited with her friend Myra, and unknown to Myra her husband Neil. Neil has had contact with Tiffany for many years. It is platonic, but loving relationship.
This is a story of a strong love of God, men and woman who are tempted, but have a strong bond with The Almighty. We also hope during this story, that Tiffany rebuilding her relationship with God, will be healed. Yes we do find out who is Karlie's father, and there is an epilogue, so all is wrapped up. Enjoy!

I received this book through Write Now Literary Virtual Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
