Overview

An undeniable talent is coaxed into the spotlight in a witty and tender romance from New York Times bestselling author Sally Mandel.

"With wit and wisdom, Sally Mandel illuminates our deepest hopes and secret fears, showing us what matters most." - Deborah Smith, author of The Stone Flower Garden

Bess Stallone is brash and bold, until she is placed center stage. A self-taught musical prodigy from the rough side of Long Island, the only thing Bess has in common with her Julliard classmates is her passion for classical music, and her extraordinary skill on the piano. A skill that crumbles under the weight of self-doubt when she plays for an audience.

Virtuoso David Montagnier is drawn to Bess’ wild talent, and gives her the opportunity she’s been waiting for to escape her blue-collar existence. He holds the key to Bess’ dreams – and surprisingly, she may hold the key to his – if she will surrender to the music and believe in love.

"Mandel displays her talent for establishing a strong female lead in an appealing millieu with an equally intriguing love interest." - Publisher's Weekly

"A compelling drama...[with] fully dimensional characters." - Booklist

    realistic yet beautiful love story

    Rocky Beach, a working class town in Nassau County, Long Island is home to Bess Stallone (no relation to the movie star) who defies her parents to take piano lessons from the music teacher at her school. She enters the competition to go to the prestigious Julliard School and works many part time jobs to pay for her lessons. She is a musical prodigy who is so afraid of performing in front of an audience that she faints whenever she tries. <P>When David Montagnier, a former child prodigy, comes into her life, he wants Bess as his partner in his two-piano repertoire. He isn¿t afraid she will faint and embarrass them both and as time goes by, she becomes one with David and the music while overcoming her stage freight. The pair is together both professionally and personally until tragedy strikes and Bess must find the courage to go on alone. <P> New York Times best-selling author Sally Mandel has written a realistic yet beautiful love story that will warm the heart of readers. Bess¿ meteoric rise to fame feels like it could happen to anyone who has talent. HEART AND SOUL is a heartwarming work that will be placed on the romance reader¿s keeper shelf. <P>Harriet Klausner
