The language of fans, roses and music. Fibonacci sequences and mathematical erotica. Greek, Latin, German, Italian, Spanish and French. This historical romance is for anyone Interested in any--or all--of these. From the start, where the mystery of the beautiful house servant immediately hooks the reader, through the gradual revelations about who Sophia really is, to the happy-ever-after epilogue, "Song for Sophia" moves the reader along, often at break-neck speed, through her complicated romance with Wil, as broken and unhappy a person as she is. The reader can't help rooting for the two of them to heal each other.

Often historical fiction pulls the reader out of the story with a too-modern sensibility. Densley manages to deftly walk the line between staying in the period and giving the characters modern relevance. Because of that, this classic story works on several different levels, giving the reader even more enjoyment.
