I enjoyed this

For a new author- I found the story to be interesting and eclectic. It is very well written. Even if you do not have a background in “music” the descriptive way the author has of introducing an intricate story line, and a dash of (well- researched) history of the state of Delaware- worked well together. I “felt” the music, enjoyed the intrigue, and the way everything came together at the end!! Hope he writes another.
A Great Read

I love this book, it is well written, the characters really come alive for the reader as you get carried away on the Journey with David Whealy. I am looking forward to a sequel. Anyone who loves music and adventure, this is the book for you…

An intricate, well-informed fictional account of a west-coast professor of music researching historical records of the colonial era to identify the lineage of his benefactor, a stranger from whom he has inherited not only a home and its contents on the east coast but also a body of musical compositions, which turn out to be exceedingly valuable. A link to online recordings allows the reader access to actual musical works composed by the author. Cleverly negotiating terrain of various types–the academy, music, and history—DeStefano covers also a broad swath of romance among the characters and a bit of the esoteric in Asian language and culture. A mystery worth following to its resolution. Gay Claiborne, Ph.D.
