Praise From My Fellow Authors

Profoundly intimate and heart wrenching, the true story of A Song in Every Silence is fascinating. Donna faced a sad and lonely ordeal, but thirty-eight years of grim resolve led to a happy ending. I’m sure readers will find it difficult not to shed a tear or two…

Donna Paul's A Song in Every Silence is a poignant, heartfelt story that speaks of the unconditional love, the sacrificial resolve, and the unshakeable bond every mother has for her child—regardless of whether she's ever set eyes on him. Both the mother and the child in me hurt when Donna hurt, despaired when she despaired, and rejoiced when she rejoiced. This book is a must-read for any who have given a baby up, have been adopted, or who are contemplating terminating a pregnancy.

—Deeanne Gist, Bestselling Author, A Bride Most Begrudging

In A Song in Every Silence, Donna Paul lets readers ride along on her journey from a hidden sorrow to a joy she shouts from the rooftops, and she paints some breathtaking views along the way. Readers will come away with a sense that there's rhyme and reason to the seemingly tragic events of our lives.
