I Always Hear Music is based on a true story. It takes place in southern Indiana on the campus of Indiana University. The backdrop of the story is overshadowed by a war brewing in Europe. The story starts in 1912 right after the sinking of the Titanic. The theme focuses on young love when a couple meets by chance. This story would have been lost if it were not for the letters a young man wrote home to his mother while he was away at college. They were stored in her sewing box and were later moved to the attic where they stayed for four generations. Also in the sewing box were newspaper clippings, graduation announcements and his college photo album. This book contains only a sampling of the pictures from the album. Some of the letters are included in this book as they were written. Others were used for the plot. But it is an amazing story of love and courage. Theresa Palek is a former teacher and environmentalist who returned to her first love, writing. She was born and raised in southern Indiana where her grandfather taught her to listen to the music. When Theresa was a little girl, her grandparent's attic was her favorite place to play. She spent countless hours there examining the contents of the trunks, boxes, and photo albums. The attic was full of neat stuff to investigate. It was there that she found the sewing box of her great grandmother full of letters. She did not read them then as she was too young to read cursive but years later she found them again. This book is the result of Theresa reliving her childhood with one more trip back into the attic.
