“Women aren’t allowed to play in orchestras.”
Although a master violinist trained in Vienna, Rebekah Carrington’s hopes of playing in the Nashville Philharmonic are quickly dashed due to her gender alone. Nashville’s new orchestra leader. Nathaniel Tate Whitcomb, agrees that Rebekah has talent, but what a shame she is female. He chooses to bow to public opinion. However, when it becomes clear he needs an assistant to help him finish his symphony he believes Rebekah is the one to ask. Yet how does he win back the trust of a woman when he has dashed her dreams?
Tamera Alexander brings music to life within these pages. Music, the city of Nashville in the 1870’s, as well as Chicory Hollow (two completely different settings beautifully flow together in this story). Ms. Alexander always has a way of bringing history to life with words. This is a beautiful story I greatly enjoyed.
