When a song connects with us on an almost molecular level, and we'd swear that whoever wrote that song either lived our life or read passages from our most personal journal entries, we discover that we're not as alone as we might have thought we were. Somebody else knows, or they couldn't have written that song in that particular way. Those songs tell us that we have something in common with their writers, but often it seems that the songwriters know more about us than we know about them.
In Hold On, the Light Will Come: And Other Lessons My Songs Have Taught Me, Michael McLean gives us insight into the songwriter's most personal journal entries. We are invited behind the scenes to experience the parts of his life that led to more than twenty albums of songs about hope and healing and holding on.
Abridged audio book
i cant read much and i have gone all the way threw this book 4 imes.
it has helped me to hold on. and it has helped my foster children to.
what a amazing guy.
Just saw Michael and his wife Lynne at a Time out for Couples in Sacramento, and was moved to read his book 'Hold On' Started last night and finsished this morning-wow. What an insight to his music. highly recommend this book with a box of kleenex;O)
I have seen Michael three times and I just love him. I love this book! It is very insightful, uplifting and inspirational. Once again his candid views mixed with his sense of humor give you hope to 'Hold On, the Light Will Come!'
What a wonderful book and CD. The music was always alive but to know more about the stories behind the lyrics and the history makes it even more personable. Several songs have helped me through out my trials. I especially enjoy hearing Michael sing his own songs with his son Jeff.
I LOVE THIS BOOK!! I have always been a fan of Michael McLean but to hear the stories behind the songs showed me that even though he is an incredible songwriter, he still has the same feelings and insecurites as the rest of us. I have always loved the song 'From Gods Arms to My Arms to Yours' because I was adopted and it helped me through a very tough time in my life. I knew the story behind the song but when I read it again, the tears started flowing all over again!!! What an incredible and uplifting book!!!
