Book Review: A Song Unheard

From the Back:

If Betraying Her Heart Means Saving Countless Lives, Will She Find the Courage?
Willa Forsythe is both a violin prodigy and top-notch thief, which makes her the perfect choice for a critical task at the outset of World War I--to secure a crucial cypher key from a famous violinist currently in Wales.

Lukas De Wilde has enjoyed the life of fame he's won--until now, when being recognized nearly gets him killed. Everyone wants the key to his father's work as a cryptologist. And Lukas fears that his mother and sister, who have vanished in the wake of the German invasion of Belgium, will pay the price. The only distraction he finds from his worry is in meeting the intriguing and talented Willa Forsythe.

But danger presses in from every side, and Willa knows what Lukas doesn't--that she must betray him and find that key, or her own family could pay the same price his surely has.

My Reflections:
This is White's second book in the series Shadows over England, and  I must say it is another stellar read!
While the beginning is a wee bit slow to mature, you soon find yourself drawn into the complex storyline and tummy tumbling suspense.

The characters are the sustenance of this story, depth and contrast make this a very fascinating tale. Willa Forsythe is used to taking what she needs. She has had to do what it takes to survive this long. Trusting people is just not something she has learned to do. People fail you, they are not to be taken at face value, they are to be taken advantage of just like they do to her.

Lukas De Wilde is used to a lifestyle of absolute comforts, but when he becomes wounded his life gets turned upside down. He is entirely self-assured and knows he can teach Willa a few things to better her self while he recovers.
In the midst of unrest, war, lies and hurt these two must come to an understanding of what life really means to them.The transformation is stunning, a symphony to your heart.

If you are a lover of music, be prepared to have this book capture you within its pages. The depth of history and dedication put into this book really brings the story to life. I so appreciated the time White put into researching the era and subject matter in this novel. Well done!
