Chained Melody is a story about self discovery and transformation.
Set mainly in the '70s and '80s, it is still relevant today, maybe even more so, because shouldn't we have learned from our society's shortcomings in the past and become better people, less judgmental, and more open to accept love for what it is?
I feel ashamed and troubled that I live in a world today that despite "equal opportunities" is still limited and exclusive, where it is still so utterly unacceptable to be at all different.
The story of Will, Billie and Tom leaves me deeply saddened. A life defined by a series of missed opportunities and regrets must be the greatest sin of all.
I wish everybody would have the chance to read this book. No matter how you feel about the subject matter, there is something in here for every reader to take away.
Chained Melody is wonderful, Debbie Martin did a truly remarkable job.
