In the early 1900s, the playwright Galeazzo D’Ascanio lived for Celia Sands. She was his muse and the inspiration for his most stunning and original play. But the night before she was to take the stage, Celia disappeared. Now, decades later, Alessandro D’Ascanio is preparing to stage the first performance of his grandfather’s masterpiece. A promising young actress - who shares Celia Sands’ name, but not her blood - has agreed to star.
She is instantly drawn to the mysteries surrounding the play - and to her compelling, compassionate employer. And even though she knows she should let the past go, in her dreams it comes back.

Yes. I love Bonnyman's narration, the characters are intriguing, the story is at once romantic and mysterious. A most enjoyable story.
Since this novel takes place in the first person, I truly was engaged by Celia's inner thoughts. Bonnyman has a soft, winsome, and dreamy voice that gives encompasses Celia's self.
