Can You Hear The Music? by Sandra Farris

untitledSet in the early 1900’s, this is a truly heart-warming story about Corey James, a young girl whose parents die in a car crash and she is taken to live with her Uncle George and Aunt Lizzie who she does not know.

The dominating Aunt Lizzie dislikes Corey and abuses her, both mentally and physically, even her husband is afraid of her!

After a failed escape, where she is caught by her wicked aunt, Corey cuts off her hair and pretends to be a boy, very convincingly. She is befriended by a stranger called Andy who takes her under his wing and teaches her how to survive honestly.

This is an amazing story following the adventure which is Corey’s life. It is a wonderful book which takes us on a rollercoaster of emotions as we watch this young girl grow-up and fall in love.
