"In feeling the harshness of those times for many unfortunate individuals, a great many of whom were only guilty of being a member of the French aristocracy, the ending serves to embrace the goodness (and sanity) of humankind." - Michele Doucette, Author of A Travel in time to Grand Pre

"This delightful and well researched story, set amid the French Revolution, sees the joy of beautiful music triumphing over the misery and suffering of war. An uplifting story for readers of all ages." - Penny Garnsworthy

From her earliest years, music left its mark on the destiny of Laneve de Nervode. Regarded as one of France’s finest concert pianists, the brilliance of her playing saved her from the guillotine. Her marriages to the Marquis de Marais, and the Count de Charnade, together with her successful teaching career at the newly established Paris Conservatory of Music, allowed her to survive the violence and bloodshed of the French Revolution.
