Christie Amoryabout this book: Can you always trust what you see and hear? That's a question we should be asking ourselves all the time. In The Sounds That Resonate, Audrey Laverty tells you the story of how she realized that the world is not what she thought it was and how we all miss things that we should be seeing. By relating the story to you, she is taking a second look at her memories of the past couple of years. That time was filled with tragedy and changes that were so intense that Audrey's emotions may have impacted her memories. Her tone is typically light and factual, sometimes slightly humorous, even though the events she are describing delve into the extraordinary.
The book may be following the story that Audrey tells of what happened to change her life, but as the tale progresses you begin to wonder if she only believes what she wants to believe, despite the evidence around her. That can be true for any of us. We must question what happens when those beliefs are shattered. How we respond can determine who among us are survivors and who will crumble under the weight of the truth. Audrey finds out that she is a survivor but the cost to survive may be more than she should have been willing to pay.
This book was written as a way to try to understand what people will do to maintain a view on the world as they want it to be. There are those of us who continually try to understand the world as it is, taking in data and trying to find the truth. We live among the others that will sacrifice the truth to hold onto a mirage. We will view the same scene through different eyes, though neither of us will realize it. Trying to see the world through Audrey Laverty's eyes is a way to try to understand the other side.
