In the first book of the Mountain Song Legacy series readers step into a small Kentucky coal mining town in the late 1800's where hope is found in the hearts of two young girls--the vibrant, red-headed Maggie MacAuley and her fragile friend Summer Rankin.
When Jonathan Stuart, the latest in a succession of educators, actually wants to continue teaching in the one-room schoolhouse, then Maggie and Summer know that he is special. So when Jonathan's cherished flute is stolen, the girls try to find a way to restore music to his life.
Sorrow and joy follow in the days to come, and through it all Maggie, Jonathan, and a community rediscover the gifts of faith, friendship, and unwavering love.

A few years ago I wrote a novella titled The Penny Whistle, featuring a much–loved and respected schoolteacher (Jonathan Stuart), who was struggling with poor health and finding it difficult to hold onto hope. Two of Jonathan’s students who fully believe in the God of the Impossible, set out to enlist His help, along with that of their families and their classmates—with some truly amazing results. This was a small book whose characters have always been among my personal favorites and, according to my mail, favorites of my readers as well, so I was tremendously excited when the opportunity arose to develop an entire series around them. A Distant Music reunites these characters some years in the future and tells ‘the rest of the story.’ I invite you to pay a visit to Skingle Creek, Kentucky, where a one–room schoolhouse provides the setting for a miracle...and the beginning of a different kind of love story.From the Back Cover:
A Distant Music...the story of a small town where coal dust soils more than the laundry on the clothesline and the paint on the company houses...where concern for a needy neighbor and a sick child have come to take a backseat to the struggle for survival...where things of beauty and grace are buried beneath the silent desperation that holds an entire community in its grip...where the one man who might make a difference hovers on the precipice between hope and despair...and where a one-room schoolhouse provides the setting for a miracle.
In the Kentucky mining community called Skingle Creek, two childhood friends give a gift that may restore the hope of their families and save the life of their beloved teacher.
A Distant Music transcends time and place, age and circumstance, tragedy and struggle. It also marks the prelude to a very special love story. One you will never forget.
