Lilah Kimball, a sixty-year-old widow, has pretty much given up on life. Bethany Freemont is Lilah’s twelve-year-old granddaughter with most of her life ahead of her. The two have never met. Then a tragic accident orphans Bethany, and Lilah is forced to take the child into her home, at least temporarily. Lilah and Bethany are at odds from day one, incapable of exchanging Lilah Kimball, a sixty-year-old widow, has pretty much given up on life. Bethany Freemont is Lilah’s twelve-year-old granddaughter with most of her life ahead of her. The two have never met. Then a tragic accident orphans Bethany, and Lilah is forced to take the child into her home, at least temporarily. Lilah and Bethany are at odds from day one, incapable of exchanging words without conflict. Lilah thinks the child impertinent; Bethany thinks her grandmother is cold and mean. Lilah’s son, a middle-aged accountant, is horrified that his mother would entertain the idea of raising the child, but Lilah’s long-time friend and housekeeper believes Bethany may be Lilah’s last chance at life. As weeks pass, Lilah begins to see herself—and her life— through Bethany’s eyes, and she doesn't like what she sees. Bethany begins to suspect her grandmother may not be the witch she once thought her. Then startling information comes to light that threatens to destroy all they’re trying to build. Of Words & Music is the story of two women divided by more than their ages, but by a lifetime of misunderstanding. It is a story of family love and loss—and renewal.

    I am in awe of Ms. Fitzgerald's amazing writing talent. OF WORDS & MUSIC is a stunning and brilliant literary accomplishment. I literally could not put this book down: picked it up at eleven o'clock last night, finished it at five a.m. this morning. An emotionally evocative and simultaneously heart-wrenching and heartwarming tale of love, loss, estrangement, and ultimately, reconciliation and redemption. Kudos & bravo, Ms. Fitzgerald! You have made the words disappear... and the music still ling I am in awe of Ms. Fitzgerald's amazing writing talent. OF WORDS & MUSIC is a stunning and brilliant literary accomplishment.

    I thought this was a wonderful story. I loved the way music brought the characters together. And, I agree with another reviewer that this would make a great Hallmark movie.
