Review and Giveaway: Jane's Melody by Ryan Winfield

What boundaries would you cross for love?

That's the question a grieving mother must answer when she takes in a young street musician to learn about her daughter's death and finds herself falling for him. A touching love story that will have you equally tantalized and in tears, Jane's Melody follows a forty-year-old woman on a romantic journey of rediscovery after years of struggling alone.

Sometimes our greatest gifts come from our greatest pain. And now Jane must decide if it's too late for her to start over, or if true love really knows no age.

Jane's Melody may not be suitable for younger readers due to sexual content.

4.5 Star Review by Jen Hagen

“A mother’s not supposed to bury her daughter.”

Jane is a 40 year-old single mother who has just buried her only child, Melody.  Melody was a young adult who lived her young life with an addiction to drugs, an addiction that eventually claimed her life.  She had been in several rehab facilities but nothing worked.  Melody and Jane had grown distant in the last few years.

“Jane knew so little about her daughter, hardly having spoken with her for an entire year before she died.”

Jane is searching for answers about her daughter’s life when she finds Caleb.  Caleb is a 24 year-old homeless man who plays guitar and sings for money.  He is hoping to someday move to Austin, Texas where he believes he will be able to make his mark in the music scene.  Jane has brief encounters with him on a couple occasions and believes that he may be a missing piece to Melody’s puzzle of a life.

“She wasn’t sure yet, but he was the only connection to her daughter that she had.  And she was determined not to let him slip away too soon.”

Jane offers Caleb a job cleaning up her wooded acreage.  Caleb accepts it knowing that it would be the chance he needs to have the funds to make the move to Austin.  What Caleb doesn’t realize is that he will have the opportunity to find love and will need to make a decision as to whether or not love or music is the road he needs to pursue.

“All my life I thought there was nothing I could ever love like I love music.  But then I met you.”

Perhaps Caleb won’t need to make that decision.  Maybe Jane will make it for him…

“He fell forward onto the empty cushion and buried his head in his arms and sobbed.”
