A YOUNG MAN WITH A DARK SECRET MUST CHOOSE BETWEEN HIS FAMILY AND THE GIRL HE LOVES.
For six years Bret Killeen is trapped by the wishes of his dead father, blackmailed by his brother, and rejected by his uncle. Meanwhile, he watches his mother descend into the depths of poverty.
As Bret wrestles with guilt over the death of his father, he is helped by Nicole, a young cello player with big dreams. She stirs the embers of his longing both for music and for her – and ignites a fire he can’t extinguish.
But can he brave his past in order to seize his future?
I’m not sure what to say… I liked the book. I liked the story.
I found the book to be very slow and I felt that it dragged on, but at the same time, I could not put it down because I knew there was some sort of mystery that I did not know quite what it was. I suspected, but I wasn’t sure. So I had to keep reading to find out the mystery. And then once I figured out the mystery, I couldn’t put it down because it just kept going!
I loved the musical aspect of the book as I am a musical person so that really kept my attention as well.
Additionally, I felt like there was a lot I could personally relate to in the story which made it all the more appealing to me to read.
All in all, it was a good read that I enjoyed reading.
