Endearing as the charm of a little child, Peace of Music is a romantically written book that spans many generations of a family.

The stage is beautifully set over two hundred years when the discovery of a heirloom is bartered for medical services to save the life of a young boy. Spanning continents and centuries, I was wrapped up in a world of music with this superbly written and magically conceived page turner.

This is an exquisite book. A beautifully woven tale covering several generations of one family whose paths are intertwined with an amazing Chinese vase.
Although the story begins in China, the plot covers a range of countries and continents as well as several centuries as the magic of the vase touches the lives of the family to whom it belongs.
The writing is beautiful, the characters are rich and varied and the pace changes from the smooth to the rough of World War.
Be prepared to lose yourself in

Music to Your Eyes

Peace of Music, by Denise Kahn, is a beautifully written book. The story centers around a priceless Chinese vase from the Song Dynasty. As the vase takes its place among the lives of the people around it, the vase sings its own song, one of destiny.

This magnificent work of literary art spans four continents and the lives of the unforgettable and colorful characters.

Get your ticket to the Peace of Music, and sit back as the curtain rises.
