Publisher's Summary

Lilly Kaiser had come to terms with her solitary, uncomplicated life after becoming a young widow. So when a stranger delivers an old violin to her Berlin antiques shop and tells Lilly it belongs to her, she's completely bewildered. Why should she be the one to inherit such an exquisite instrument?
Together with her best friend, Ellen, and handsome musicologist Gabriel Thornton, Lilly sets out to explore the violin's legacy. From England to Italy to Indonesia, she follows its winding trail. Along the way, she learns of Rose Gallway, a beautiful woman of English and Sumatran descent who lived among Sumatra's lush gardens more than a hundred years earlier. A celebrated and sought-after musician, Rose once owned Lilly's violin and regularly played concerts for Sumatra's colonial elite - until, one day, she simply disappeared.
As Lilly unravels the mystery behind Rose's story - and uncovers other unexpected secrets - she'll come to see her own life in an entirely new light. And as each shared discovery brings her closer to Gabriel, her heart might finally break its long-held silence.

a nice wee story

this is a nice wee story but not much more. it's more like a pleasant coach trip than a fair ground ride. more could have been made of Sumatra, more could have been made of the romance and the mystery could be seen unravelling from early on. it did have an interesting thread following the journey of the violin.
