Publisher's Summary

Imperfect harmony can still be beautiful....
John Fletcher, a former musician, is stuck in limbo after losing his long-term partner two years ago. He's shut himself off from everything that reminds him of what he's lost. When his neighbor persuades him to join the local community choir, John rediscovers his love of music and finds a reason to start living again.
Rhys Callington, the talented and charismatic choir leader, captures John's attention from the first moment they meet. He appears to be the polar opposite of John: young, vibrant, and full of life. But Rhys has darkness in his own past that is holding him back from following his dreams.
Despite the 19-year age gap, the two men grow close and a fragile relationship blossoms. Ghosts of the past and insecurities about the future threaten their newfound happiness. If they're going to harmonize in life and love as they do in their music, they'll need to start following the same score.

Delightful story and narration

An uplifting May-December romance revolving around music and having a second chance at love. It’s a beautiful story with plenty of touching tearful moments. Yes, there’s a sad tinge to the story, but it’s not morbid or depressing at all. Each man was respectful of their past love and held their memory dear. Although different in age and physique, the characters came across as real, as did their grief and trepidation about falling in love again. Loved it.

Another lovely narration by Mark Steadman. Gentle pace and easy listening, with heart-wrenching, moving scenes.

A beautiful must read story

I have read all of Jay Northcote's books but this is the first time I have actually listened to one. I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. All of the books I've listened to so far have been narrated by American narrators, even when the characters have a British accent. This was the first book I listened to where the narrator is already British so I thought it was going to be great. Except it felt a little flat in some parts. Whenever there wasn't any dialogue between characters I didn't feel the story as much as when there was dialogue. Mark Steadman is fantastic during scenes that have lots of emotion and the last few chapters of the book are perfection. Maybe it is that it took me a little longer to get used to a British voice or a new narrator I hadn't experienced before.
Regardless of that, the book itself is one of the best I've read and the story between John and Rhys is so beautiful. Two people stricken by grief finding a new beginning together when there is so much within themselves that is afraid.
I totally recommend reading or listening to this book.
