About This Book
I am so happy to be sharing my novel of suspense, The Lost Concerto, and Maggie’s story with you.
Maggie O’Shea is grieving the loss of her husband, who has drowned in a tragic accident far from home. Her grief has crushed her passion for music, and for Maggie, a classical concert pianist, the loss of her music is unbearable. Moving on is unthinkable, until a grainy photograph draws her into a perilous search across France for her missing godson and a long-lost love. The Lost Concerto tells Maggie’s story, a story of love, loss, vengeance and courage, a story of mystery and intrigue and danger. Ultimately, it is the story of a woman who must fight to move on and find what has been lost within herself. In The Lost Concerto, it is music that tells Maggie’s story.
The Opening Chords…
A woman and her young son flee to a convent on a remote island off the Breton coast of France. Generations of seafarers have named the place Île de la Brume, or Fog Island. In a chapel high on a cliff, a tragic death occurs and a terrified child vanishes into the mist.
The child’s godmother, Maggie O’Shea, haunted by the violent deaths of her husband and best friend, has withdrawn from her life as a classical pianist. But then a recording of unforgettable music and a grainy photograph surface, connecting her missing godson to a long-lost first love.
The photograph will draw Maggie inexorably into a collision course with powerful and dangerous men, decades-old secrets, and stolen art and musical artifacts—all set against the background of Boston, Paris, and Aix-en-Provence, France. Will Maggie find the answers to her husband’s death, an unexpected love—and a musical masterpiece lost for centuries?
A compelling blend of suspense, mystery, political intrigue, and romance, The Lost Concerto explores universal themes of loss, vengeance, courage, and love.
