Frozen Music: A Novel
Esther And Linus Are Star-crossed lovers who have only just met; yet they have known of each other their entire lives, thanks to the long-lasting letter-writing friendship between their mothers. Linus was a clumsy, dreamy child in Sweden whose mother died tragically when he was seven. Now he is a handsome, extremely talented architect of great vision. He has just landed the job of a lifetime -- designing a grand opera house to be built in England. For Linus, great architecture is "frozen music, " and this opera house will be his masterpiece. Esther, who grew up in England with endearingly inadequate parents, always questioned the "why" of things. Now she is a journalist, bent on defending an elderly English couple's right to remain in their home, even after the property underneath it has been sold to accommodate a soon-to-be-built opera house.
Compellingly warm, wry, and funny, Frozen Music follows the parallel lives of two flawed and enormously sympathetic characters as they stumble along the path of their identical destiny -- true love. This is an unforgettable love story that will both enchant and intrigue readers.
