Symphony of Secrets is likely to delight Sharon Hinck fans. Hinck has a distinctive voice, creating heroines who are flawed but very likable. Symphony introduces Amy, an artist with the flute and a mess in life. She has a teen daughter, Clara, who is going her own way and Amy finds that terrifying and a little bit insulting. Especially when Clara decides to check out church, and then begins to buy into the mindless drivel taught there.
However, Amy is always up for a good mystery. As events in her life unfold into the life she's only dreamed of, the mystery wends its way throughout. Overall, this novel is charming and full of humor. Hinck also inserts mournful melodies that pull on reader heartstrings. A solid story with a satisfying conclusion.
