Echo by Pam Muniz Ryan

I was very fortunate to be raised in a home rich with music.  So, I have always believed that music (and books, obviously) are a means of escape and adventure.  Music can transport you, encourage you and instantly change your mood.  So, when I saw the blurb for Echo I knew I wanted to read it.  After all, “..a prophesy, a promise and a harmonica…” is just too cryptic and wonderful to not read more.Echo

Echo tells the story of three children struggling through some of the most difficult moments in modern history.  The rise of Hitler’s Germany, the Great Depression and segregation in America are all experienced through the eyes of these young and brave kids.  It is the harmonica – an immensely popular instrument in its own time – that provides a means of escape for the each of them.

There is no real way to describe the book without spoiling the story.  I almost think it is better to read Pam Munoz Ryan’s version of how she stumbled upon the story idea.  I do, however, feel confident in recommending it.  Echo is beautifully written and when I see a copy I always feel the overwhelming need to hug it.
