About the Book
When concert pianist Vivienne Mourdant's father dies, he leaves to her the care of an adult ward she knew nothing about. The woman is supposedly a patient at Hurstwell Asylum. The woman's portrait is shockingly familiar to Vivienne, so when the asylum claims she was never a patient there, Vivienne is compelled to discover what happened to the figure she remembers from childhood dreams.
The longer she lingers in the deep shadows and forgotten towers at Hurstwell, the fuzzier the line between sanity and madness becomes. She hears music no one else does, receives strange missives with rose petals between the pages, and untangles far more than is safe for her to know. But can she uncover the truth about the mysterious woman she seeks? And is there anyone at Hurstwell she can trust with her suspicions?
I have enjoyed the previous books I've read by Joanna Davidson Politano, so was eager to read The Lost Melody. I found the book to be well written and I absolutely did not want to put it down. Who needs to eat or sleep, right? There is such hopelessness in the asylum but also moments of sunshine. The author captured the feel of the asylum really well. I liked the biblical faith thread. I found the characters to be realistic and well thought out. I loved the cameo appearance of some characters from "Midnight Dance". I look forward to reading more books by Joanna Davidson Politano.
