Summary

A woman and her young son flee to a convent on a remote island off the Breton coast of France. Generations of seafarers have named the place Ile de la Brume, or Fog Island. In a chapel high on a cliff, a tragic death occurs and a terrified child vanishes into the mist.
The child's godmother, Maggie O'Shea, haunted by the violent deaths of her husband and best friend, has withdrawn from her life as a classical pianist. But then a recording of unforgettable music and a grainy photograph surface, connecting her missing godson to a long-lost first love.
The photograph will draw Maggie inexorably into a collision course with criminal forces, decades-long secrets, stolen art and musical artifacts, and deadly terrorists. Her search will take her to the Festival de Musique, Aix-en-Provence, France, where she discovers answers to her husband's death, an unexpected love - and a musical masterpiece lost for decades.
A compelling blend of suspense, mystery, political intrigue, and romance, The Lost Concerto explores universal themes of loss, vengeance, courage, and love.

Desperately poor!

What disappointed you about The Lost Concerto?

The reader and the descriptive passages - for example 'he regarded her with his two blue eyes' - most people have two eyes, no need to remark on it.

What was most disappointing about Helaine Mario’s story?

That I could only bear to listen to half an hour of it - such a waste of money.

What didn’t you like about Carol Purdom’s performance?

Her slow, drawling reading and her appalling attempt at a man's Irish accent

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

ANGER that I wasted my time on it

Any additional comments?

I shall never choose another book by this author and shall also take care to avoid this narrator.

Listened to 1 1/2 chapters

This melodramatic prose has heavy dialogue that isn't appropriate for modern times. I couldn't stick with it. The narrator was great, but the writing was awful.
