Eva Baumann was a normal teenage girl until one moment changed her entire life. Now going through day to day with no spark, always wondering what could have been, is starting to wear on her.
Sebastian Weiss always knew he didn't want to follow in his parents footsteps but he didn't know it would cost him his entire family. After years on his own trying to get his big break, the work has finally paid off. Sebastian Weiss is now the lead singer for the up and coming Hollow Fellows.
When these two soul collide will it be the end of the loneliness they both feel? Can they help one another heal and move on from the past?
Lee Strauss has done it again! Flesh and Bone, the second book in the Minstrel Series, is fantastic. With deep rooted secrets and fears, the plot is suspenseful and the HEA is wonderful. Lee's characters - Eva and Sebastian - are once again written to the point where you feel as though you know both of them and the things they keep bottled inside. The setting - Germany - is beautifully depicted and mentions of new places have been add to this book.
Flesh and Bone is about forgiveness, redemption, and love - the love of yourself and the love of another.
Flesh and Bone is a fantastic read worthy of 5 stars! I can't wait for book three in this series.

Five years ago Eva was in an accident that left her leg crippled. Ever since she has been working on music and the nerve to sing in front of people at the Blue Note. She doesn't like being the center of attention for fear people will see her handicap and not hear her music. But one day she finally does it and her life is forever changed (again). She meets Sebastian Weiss and a friendship forms. Soon stronger feelings come between them and a relationship is born. Will a secret from Sebastian's past destroy everything they worked so hard at? Will Eva be able to let go of her past and move on from it? With so much riding against them, these two will have to fight for what they want. But it won't be easy. Is anything worth having ever easy?
This book was just so sweet and so beautiful. I think I have found a new sub-genre that appeals to me: people with handicaps. Sounds weird when I say it like that but it is true. This is the 2nd book I've read in the past couple weeks where one of the characters is not perfect. And that makes the character more real to me. I can see where a lot of people will be able to connect to them. But don't get me wrong. Even though the character has a disability that leaves her with a cane...she is by no means weak. Eva is definitely a strong willed girl with a great head on her shoulders. I loved her so.
I adored the heck out of these characters and the story they told. I remembered Sebastian from SUN & MOON but thought of him as kind of flighty then. This time around he has grown up some and I just loved him. He has a huge heart and loves with every bit of it. Eva is a sweetheart that has a bunch of issues she has had to work through over the years. I love the person that Sebastian brings out in her though. He really awoken her spirit that was asleep deep within her. Together they are wonderful couple. Apart they are miserable.
The story was simply fabulous and I smiled most of the way through. I just couldn't help myself. Strauss did an excellent job writing this one…giving us a fairy tale romance of sorts and telling a story that was fresh and different. I look forward to the next book in the series, HEART & SOUL. Knowing Strauss, it will be just as excellent as this one. 5 Adoring Stars!
