My review on www.bookread2day.wordpress.com

I felt like I was at the opera from the comfort of my sofa, while reading this beautiful story.


Catriona Drouot runs a psychology practice, one of the best in Nice. Catriona specialized in a variety of psychological disciplines, it was music therapy that was close to heart as ten years before she had an ambition to become an International opera singer.


I really liked the theme Catronia having a business in music therapy, I thought that this was a wonder

3.5 Stars.

Passionate, mysterious, and exceptionally descriptive!

Concerto is a captivating, enigmatic tale about the power of love; the lengths that one will go to for it and the unimaginable things one often does in the name of it.

The prose is evocative and lush. The characters are fervent, secretive, and flawed. And the plot, although a little slow at times, is a sweeping saga laced from start to finish with palpable emotion, colourful imagery, longing, desperation, heartbreak, greed, jealousy

Catriona is a music therapist who was once on the track to become an opera singer. That is, until she met the great composer Umberto Monteverdi. After a torrid night spent together, Umberto leaves her high and dry. 10 years later, he becomes blind and guess which music therapist is roped in to save the guy? Catriona, of course! But she’s carrying secrets, he’s carrying baggage–how the two process everything and get back together forms the rest of the story.

Concerto is another angsty page turner

This book opened with the request of a famous opera singer to a music therapist to help her son. The son whose past linked to the music therapist itself.

The plot actually a cliche, you can predict the twist and the ending of course. The flow also too slow for me, author spend two chapters in detail description that it felt like several more chapters of the past of the opera singer's son and music therapist at the beginning of the novel.
Then it went forward with how they interact in the present
