Praise for "A Song to Sing, A Life to Live"
"Pull up a chair and sit in the family room as these two share the places where their views on music connect and diverge, demonstrating how to 'make musical judgments, but not in a judgmental manner.' Musicians, music-lovers and indeed all those devoted to the 'spirituality of daily life' will be inspired."
— "Publishers Weekly"
"I found warmth, wisdom, and love to be present on every page of this book. Emily and her father, Don, have found a way to have a deeply meaningful conversation about their life experiences and share it with the reader. The result is this beautiful expression of music as many things— healer, gift, symbol of freedom and community, and agent of change."
— Mary Chapin Carpenter
"Emily and her dad have created a beautiful celebration of how music and spirit connect us all."
— Bonnie Raitt
"In this sweetheart of a book, Don and Emily Saliers do far more than write convincingly about the healing power of music. They show us how it works by letting their own love of 'deep song' lead them across generational, aesthetic, and religious differences into a place of such holy listening to one another that even the angels lay down their tambourines."
— Barbara Brown Taylor, author, "Bread of Angels, Home by Another Way, Gospel Medicine, The Preaching Life, God in Pain," and "Speaking of Sin"
