A sweet little girl named Samantha with blue sparkly eyes looses her mom, and dad tragically one day. This sends her from a world of music, and happiness to one of utter despair with her aunt who hates music. Her aunt insists on silence, and even takes Samantha's radio. She can't stop young Samantha from listening to the trees though as they dance in the breeze, or the yellow song bird, or the music from the forests. Will Samantha rediscover happiness with nature? Will she be an influence on her aunt? This story isn't all doom, and gloom. It does have a happy ending. And, at the heart of it all is Sparkle's Song. A wonderful book for kids facing adversity. Highly recommended.
