Title: LOST MELODY
Authors: Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith
Genre: Inspirational/women’s fiction
Jill King is a talented concert pianist. She’s on her way to play at Carnegie Hall, when a subway accident takes her career from her in one unexpected blow. Now, a year later, Jill is living in Nova Scotia. She is thankful that she is alive and that she still has the love of her life, Greg, but still bitter that she lost the ability to play the piano—a passion she’d built her life around.
With the death of Jill’s most important dream, a nightmare, even scarier than she imagined, comes to life. Jill is terrified that an inferno will destroy her town. She sounds the alarm, but this could cost Greg his political ambitions as well as their relationship. Not to mention, the townsfolk assume she’s lost more than her musical ability.
Inspired by a real life even in 1917, LOST MELODY is a well-written story by two authors who are both best sellers in their own right. Jill is a very realistic character, scarred in more than one way by the unimaginable tragedy that took her life-long dream, and facing another nightmare of horrific proportions.
I especially liked the character of Robert who only appeared sporadically in the story. He was such a treat. If you are looking for a good women’s fiction novel to read, then I recommend LOST MELODY. $12.99. 350 pages.
