Welcome to the first monthly “Character Introduction” post, featuring Willa Forsythe from “A Song Unheard” by Roseanna M. White! The idea behind this post is just to spotlight the character a bit, give a little description of her personality, and for fun, a few books I’d recommend to her if I could. ^.^ Enjoy!
She is a prodigy–and a thief.
Stubborn. She’s “Willa-ful” :), but has a fierce love for her family and a strong passion for her music. Her music-playing is pretty much unmatched, and she’s…snarky. Impossible perhaps, but loveable all the same. Daring, and comes across as fearless. In “A Song Unheard” we see her struggle with some feelings of mistrust, insecurities, and fear, and yet she still remains such a strong character, growing even more throughout the story.
Books I’d recommend to her:
- “The Melody of the Soul” by Liz Tolsma ~ She and Anna would relate well over their love for violin.
- “Dauntless” and “Chivalrous” by Dina Sleimen ~ I think she would feel a kinship with the rag-tag family in Dauntless, and feel a friendship with Gwendolyn in Chivalrous for their likewise independant behaviour.
- “The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest” by Melanie Dickerson ~ while this book may come across as too “fairytale” for Willa herself, I think she could admire the main character, Odette, for her skills and desire to feed the poor.
