A magnificent obsession sparks Morrow's gorgeous novel, and Christina Delaine's narration adds the needed heat. A plot as intricate as a sonata winds together the German occupation of Prague in 1939; an authentic eighteenth-century musical score hidden from the Nazis; and the life of Meta Taverner, a young musicologist in contemporary New York. Delaine's lush tones allow the characters to take center stage. A Czech immigrant gives Meta one piece of a mysterious eighteenth-century score, asking only that she search for its original owner. Delaine is spot-on at conveying just the right emotions as Meta's passion grows in her quest to find the composer and the missing parts of the manuscript--and to bring its haunting melodies together.
