Amidst their current illness, the women are separately visited by a man of alleged paramount significance. Who is this man? Is he the key to helping these women or can music unlock the answers in time to save them all?
"A travel through generations interconnected by the love of music and a story that defines the true meaning of love at first sight. Ms. Elam Dauw gives us an intelligent male character who goes above the call of duty for love. This is a story that charms audiences and proves that true love is worth fighting and waiting for!"
"This novel struck multiple chords with me, being at once sadly poignant and beautifully romantic. Ms. Elam Dauw's excellent narrative paints a vivid and endearing portrait of each one of her characters. I wanted to be in love and be loved in exactly the same way as Ellie (in Part 3). This is a very moving novel."

Dauw tells the tale of three woman and how they triumphed over the obstacles they faced to be with the ones that cared for them most. None of them had it easy as life and even society played against them. Somehow, one way or another they made it through. Their stories will pull at your heart strings and take you on an emotional journey. There were a few telling moments that resonated strong. Most of that happened later with Ellie and Robert. There story was the strongest to me and they had a few moments that are unforgettable. I recommend this for anyone who loves music, romance, or both!
I began this novel upon the referral of a friend, and though it was an unknown author, I was pleasantly surprised how the characters and their actions jumped out at me from the page. Every part was unique, set in various time periods, and moved quick enough to keep the reader engaged. I was completely blown away when I read the twist at the end of part 3, which you absolutely must reach. This is a read every young adult, if not every adult, should read to comprehend the genuine love that's worth risking everything to simply wait for and save... I hope Ms. Elam Dauw writes more classics like this one as it's reminiscent of anything by Nicholas Sparks. Fabulous read!
