Publisher's Summary

Lilly Kaiser had come to terms with her solitary, uncomplicated life after becoming a young widow. So when a stranger delivers an old violin to her Berlin antiques shop and tells Lilly it belongs to her, she's completely bewildered. Why should she be the one to inherit such an exquisite instrument?
Together with her best friend, Ellen, and handsome musicologist Gabriel Thornton, Lilly sets out to explore the violin's legacy. From England to Italy to Indonesia, she follows its winding trail. Along the way, she learns of Rose Gallway, a beautiful woman of English and Sumatran descent who lived among Sumatra's lush gardens more than a hundred years earlier. A celebrated and sought-after musician, Rose once owned Lilly's violin and regularly played concerts for Sumatra's colonial elite - until, one day, she simply disappeared.
As Lilly unravels the mystery behind Rose's story - and uncovers other unexpected secrets - she'll come to see her own life in an entirely new light. And as each shared discovery brings her closer to Gabriel, her heart might finally break its long-held silence.

Moonlit but not a listening pleasure.:/

I liked the story but t narrative was so affected and annoying that I could only listen for short periods of time. Her gravelly tone and snooty accent spoiled the book for me. I will not read anything she narrates.

Terrible narration

The story was pretty good, but the narration ... awful. The narrator, although skilled at employing different voices for each character, has a nasal intonation that ends most sentences. If the plot sounds promising, i would suggest reading it the old fashioned way, not as an audible pick.

- Robin "Hi all. I'm in my 50's (that's relevant, i think), and I favor fiction. I like the british sensibility, and was introduced to the Forsyte Saga through audible ... loved it! I happen to also like Chinese writers, but they are not well represented yet at audible. Looking to follow readers with similar tastes ..."
