Having read Unni Hoel's first novel "Overtones", I was anxious for the sequel "Absolute Pitch". When I finally got my hands on it, I found it equally hard to put down. The story is filled with music and love, as Tanya finally finds the right man. Her son, Rip, develops into an accomplished musician and opera conductor. Unfortunately he falls in love with the wrong woman and begins an affair that ultimately causes pain, tragedy and death. As the plot unfolds on two continents (in various countries), the characters are joined on their quest for love¿traveling from city to city and from concert halls to opera stages. Absolute Pitch has all the best elements of a good romance novel!

I consider myself lucky to have stumbled upon Unni Hoel's novels, Overtones and Absolute Pitch. Although I am not much of a reader, I felt captivated from the first chapter. Often during my day, I would catch myself wondering how the next few pages might play out. These are stories of romance, stories of love and yet sprinkled with the sadness and tragedies of real life. My heart ached with the suffering and rejoiced with the romance. And I learned a bit about classical music and the opera along the way. You must read both books to thoroughly enjoy the characters growth and passions. Bravo, Unni, I await the next book !

Unni Hoel has written two engaging novels with music and musicians as the theme. Unni's love of and professional experience in classical music is evident, and the story she weaves around it is entertaining and refreshing. Both of her works, Overtones and its sequel Absolute Pitch are passionate adventures about musicians as told by a first-class storyteller. Great reading which I enthusiastically recommend.
