As Milo’s treatment progresses, the images begin to weave together in an intricate, mysterious tapestry of stories that winds through several generations. There are Joe and Pearl, a husband and wife in the 1930s, whose marriage is tested by Pearl’s bewitching artistic cousin, Vivian. There is the heartrending story of a woman photographer in the 1960s and the shocking theft of her life’s work. And the story of a man and woman in 17th-century Turkey—a eunuch and a sultan’s concubine—whose forbidden love is captured in music. The stories converge in a symphonic crescendo that reveals the far-flung origins of America’s endlessly romantic soul and exposes the source of Honor and Milo’s own love.
A beautiful mystery and a meditation on love—its power and limitations—American Music is a brilliantly original novel told in Jane Mendelsohn’s distinctive, mesmerizing style.

In the end I Loved It
this story calls on the reader to walk through a number of generations of a young woman's history. At times I could feel that I could hear the music of other times and see the sights. I thought this book was very well read and enjoyed the mystery of it.
