Another New Arrival

Symphony of Secrets is now available on Kindle!

Talented flutist Amy Johnson’s dreams come true when she wins a spot with the Minneapolis Symphony. But this armchair detective has trouble concentrating on the notes as she begins to see devious motives behind her fellow musicians’ mishaps. Meanwhile, her musically talented daughter is forsaking the arts for cheerleading. Amy has to confront questions of faith, challenges of being the single mom of a teen daughter, and the secrets of her past – all while solving the mystery of the symphony before it’s forced to close and she loses not only her dream job but her promising new relationship with its conductor.

“It’s official—if the book says Sharon Hinck on the spine, I’m buying it! Symphony of Secrets hits just the right tone, weaving harmonies of mystery, family, and the life of a symphonic musician—a topic I’ve not experienced in fiction before. The melody is God’s love, subtle yet persistent and so perfectly pitched that I’ll be humming that tune for a long time to come. This is a great read and a perfect gift for anyone who finds joy in music.” - Kathryn Mackel, author of Vanished

“What a delightful story! I fell in love with the characters on the first page and didn’t want to let them go. If you love music, as I do, you’ll especially enjoy this engaging tale of lost dreams and second chances. Like a Haydn serenade, your mind will dance along the story line at an engaging pace, allowing your imagination and sense of humor to absorb the melody of its plot. With Symphony of Secrets, Sharon Hinck makes beautiful music with her words!” - Mindy Starns Clark, author of The Million Dollar Mysteries series

Welcome to the Family

Our first grandchild arrived yesterday!

While we waited for news yesterday morning, we pulled out a song that we sang at each of our children's baptisms:

Welcome to the Family
by Debby Kerner

Welcome to the family, we're glad that you have come
to share your life with us, as we grow in love, and
May we always be to you what God would have us be,
a family always there, to be strong and to lean on.

May we learn to love each other more with each new day
May words of love be on our lips in everything we say
May the Spirit melt our hearts and teach us how to pray,
that we might be, a true family.


That's our prayer... along with a huge praise for our sweetie-girl's safe arrival.
