But Kaal has something much more meaningful - a lute made of cherry wood that, when played, puts peace in the hearts of those around him. "He could make it sing with the voice of many waters. He could make it soft and sweet like the murmur of a mother to her child, or deep and rich like the songs of the men working in the fields. And at night, when the moon went down, he could make it lull the villagers to sleep."When news of Kaal and his lute reaches the King of the land, the young peasant is called to perform his greatest task ever - to cure the King's dying daughter.Like many classic folk and fairy tales that have endured for years, The Lute's Tune is a rare and moving book that will touch the heart of children and adults alike.

    Reading this to my son. It has the feel of a parable. It being about a lute-playing boy attracted me.It's a lovely story with good action and a surprising message. Not bound to Christianity's version of heaven but easily interpretable as such, if that's what you want to do. Warning: spoilers!The boy with the lute plays for a king's sick daughter and instead of waking her, he calls he spirit out of her body. She says it's the most beautiful place, where she's more alive than ever before and insists that the boy join her. He does, but realizes that he still has things to do in this life and returns to his body.
