After Rebekah Carrington’s step-father’s failed attack, her grandmother whisked her away to Vienna for the past ten years. She thrived under the intense musical training there, but with the recent passing of her grandmother, Rebekah has been summoned back home to Nashville. Determined not to find herself in another dangerous situation with her step-father, Rebekah has been desperately searching for a job that includes food and board. Her heart’s desire would be to do something that includes music.
Unfortunately, in 1871, women are considered too fragile and frail to be part of the Nashville Philharmonic, and that thinking is held by the new Maestro, Nathaniel Whitcomb. Rebekah does find work with one of the richest women in the city, but ironically, part of her job is working with Maestro Whitcomb.
Unexpectedly, Rebekah discovers Whitcomb is living a secret life. Additionally, she becomes privy to even more information about him which causes Rebekah to view the Maestro in a different light. Completely against her will, she actually starts liking him—sometimes. She also does something at one of Mrs. Cheatham’s parties that Rebekah thinks will please her, but almost causes her to lose her job.
This is the third installment in the Belmont Mansion Novel Series, but this story stands alone without the need to read any other books. I enjoyed this five-star book, and the strong musical element in the tale. Bringing Whitcomb’s secret life into the story really made the tale interesting. There are other surprises for the reader as this narrative goes on which makes it a fun read. Fans of music, historical novels or romances will enjoy this tale, but it will appeal to anyone who likes well-written and clean, Christian fiction.
