Book Review By Margaret Lukasik

In “A Song in Her Heart” by Kathy Dye, the transformative power of music is beautifully illustrated. She skillfully explores the crucial themes of love, family, faith and Alzheimer’s, weaving each seamlessly into a captivating story that speaks directly to our hearts. 

The central character in this true story is Josie.  She is the mother of the author who has lost much of her memory; however, the one thing that remains is her ability to sing the songs of her youth. Through this unique lens, we see how music can be a powerful tool for self-expression and to help children understand how to sensitively communicate with a loved one who has the disease.  

Dye’s writing is both poetic and evocative, using the language of music to create deeply moving illustrations that are sure to resonate with readers. From the opening notes of the story, we are drawn into Josie’s world and feel a sense of kinship with her joy, struggles and triumphs.

Ultimately, “A Song in Her Heart” offers a message of hope and inspiration, reminding us that even when all else is lost, the truest part of ourselves can still shine through. This book is a must-read for anyone who loves stories that speak to the human experience at large and offers an empowering reminder of the power of music to heal us all. Going deeper, it’s a book that shares a simple message about how to communicate with loved ones who have lost their memories.
