Great story about a young woman, Fiona, who is trying to get back on her feet after a stint in prison. With no family close by and the system seeming to be against her, it is Vivaldi's music which helps ground her and allow her to discover her roots. The story is interwoven with the story of Vivaldi's lost concerto, not only how it came to be found in an Edinbourgh archive, but also how it came to be known to Fiona's family. I really enjoyed this book!

This book kept me reading. The characters were well developed and the plot which combined a contemporary and historical story was cleverly written. I liked the settings in both Venice and Scotland. The author’s love of music and history was evident but not intrusive. Readers of Kate Morton and Dianne Galbaldon will enjoy this book.

A very good read, with interesting interwoven narratives that take you from present day back to the 18th century. A good example of historical fiction and a pleasure to read while on holidays.
