At thirty-one, Elizabeth, a music teacher fulfilled by her craft and dedicated to her students, is still single and living at home. Unexpectedly, the father of one of her students seems to want to court her. Edward, a well-heeled solicitor still recovering from the tragic death of his young wife, invites Elizabeth to dinner at his home – a home complete with a magnificent piano that he invites her to play.

Out of the blue, Elizabeth receives a letter from her former admirer, Tom – a sheep-farmer, living in Scotland. Will the contents of this letter change Elizabeth’s destiny? What startling secrets will it reveal that may upend Elizabeth’s entire view of her life?

  1. Um. I like to be positive. So, this looks better than an earlier book of hers that I read. But, how many murmurs do we need in the first few chapters? Ugh.

    Authors. Do not overuse dialogue tags. Do try said. Do not overuse adverbs. This is basic. She murmured.

    1. I know you well for your honesty and constructive criticism… Excellent tips, it’s so easy to fall into the trap of overusing anything when our minds are filled with scenarios and our fingers start dancing across the keyboard in an effort to tranfer those images into words. As authors we must be vigilant while writing. Having said that, improvement should come with experience. 🙂
