MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

 

I have always enjoyed knowing the story behind a song, or a fiction book that I read, so I was excited about review this book. And I love Ace Collins! Everything he writes is awesome, whether it is fiction or non-fiction. Music for your Heart is non-fiction, and I really enjoyed reading about all of the songs in this book, I know most of the songs in this book, but most I had never read the story behind so many of them, so it was a special treat to read about songs I have sang for years.  I have played the piano, keyboard and organ for many years, and have also played many of these songs many times, and what a joy it was to sit down and read awhile and sing awhile! This would make a wonderful gift for someone who loves music. I have a musical family, so I will be telling them about this wonderful book by Ace Collins.  There are like 87 songs in this book, so you will sure find a few you will enjoy reading about. Some are church songs, some are just good old time songs, some are newer, but all of them have a special meaning! Pick up your copy today for hours of entertainment and enjoyment! And you will learn a lot too!

I received this book from the publisher Abingdon Press to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
