THE NOTES IN OUR HEARTS // a short story review

The Notes in Our Hearts
Two generations, one song...

my review - 5
Awww! Oh, my dude! That was the cutest! My heart is all warm and happy but like a very bittersweet happy... πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– Such a sweet story. Gabriellyn presents such a sensitively told story of sacrifice, love, and hope; all told with tender poignancy.  

I absolutely adore how the past and present were blended. I mean here's a short list of things I loved:
  • WW2
  • Music love
  • Wait, would this be considered a love triangle???? CUZ I LOVE IT. 
  • Sacrificial love
  • piano piano piano
  • My emotions are turbulent........
  • dealing with grief
*sniffs* 'Nuff said, y'all. This is HANDS DOWN one of the best short stories I've ever read. The feels are vivid, but still, the message of faith is even more so. The topics that are addressed are very deep, and yet Gabriellyn was very light in her approach to them, which just made everything so sweet and tender. I JUST WANNA HUG THIS STORY. *hugs it* 

If you're looking for a quick read that will just make your heart melt.... then read this, luv. This was adorable in the deepest way.

ALSO. This reminded me of a movie I watched a LOOOOOONG time ago called "Though None Go With Me". I haven't watched it in a while, but I never forgot the plot because #FEELS. Anyways. There's that. 

Have a wonderful day :)

    1. Thanks, Gabriellyn, for writing the book in the first place! It was my pleasure girl! :)

  2. This sounds so sweet! (and more stories should have music :)

    Jazzy, I've tagged you for the Mysteriously Nameless Tag of Doom (it's about books...) on my blog, if you were interested in doing that? I thought of you because you've been doing so many lovely ranty book reviews ;) Only if you want to!
