“Blissfully Romantic….A strange, terrific, spellcasting story.” — San Francisco Chronicle

Bel Canto…should be on the list of every literate music lover. The story is riveting, the participants breathe and feel and are alive, and throughout this elegantly-told novel, music pours forth so splendidly that the reader hears it and is overwhelmed by its beauty.” —Lloyd Moss, WXQR

“Glorious.” —The New Yorker

Ann Pratchett’s award winning, New York Times bestselling Bel Canto balances themes of love and crisis as disparate characters learn that music is their only common language. As in Patchett’s other novels, including Truth & Beauty and The Magician’s Assistant, the author’s lyrical prose and lucid imagination make Bel Canto a captivating story of strength and frailty, love and imprisonment, and an inspiring tale of transcendent romance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of the most engaging and thought-provoking books I have ever read. In an easy to read style, the author quickly brings you in to the complex world of the characters and the stressful situation in which they find themselves. Slowly, you come to understand each person's perspective, and your initial loyalty begins to change as the story unfolds. I loved the theme of music as the universal language. The ending has an interesting twist, and leaves you wanting to read more from this talented author.
