 Book Description
A master violinist trained in Vienna, Rebekah Carrington manages to wheedle her way into an audition with the maestro at the newly formed Nashville Philharmonic. But women are "far too fragile and frail" for the rigors of an orchestra, and Rebekah's hopes are swiftly dashed because the conductor--determined to leave his mark on the world of classical music--bows to public opinion. To make matters worse, Adelicia Acklen Cheatham, mistress of Belmont Mansion and Rebekah's new employer, agrees with him.

Nationally acclaimed conductor Nathaniel Tate Whitcomb is Nashville's new orchestra leader. And despite a reluctant muse--and a strange buzzing and recurring pain in his head--he must finish composing his symphony before the grand opening of the city's new opera hall. But far more pressing, he must finish it for the one who first inspired his love of music--his father, who is dying. As Tate's ailment worsens, he believes Rebekah can help him finish his symphony. But how do you win back a woman's trust when you've robbed her of her dream?
 My Review
I am really glad I decided to give this book a try! This book was a great stand alone story even though I did not get to read the other books in the series. It was beautifully written and the story had my interest from the beginning. The setting and historical feel were also done very nicely. And the characters were easy to connect with. I also loved getting a look into the history of women in music. I had heard a little about that history before, but this book brought it to life in a whole new way!
  I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review. The opinions are my own.
