Bridget longs to meet a gentleman who doesn't mention her beautiful sister upon shaking her hand. But since being branded a shrew after a disastrous social season, Bridget knows she’s lucky to even have a man come near her. It's enough to make a lady flee the country. So Bridget heads to Venice for music lessons with the renowned Italian composer Vincenzo Carpenini, with whom she's been corresponding. But not only is Carpenini not expecting her, he doesn’t even remember her! His friend, theater owner Oliver Merrick, does, though. And one look into her tantalizing green eyes has him cursing his impulsive letter-writing, which brought her across the continent. Yet before Merrick can apologize, Carpenini has ordered her away. Little does either man know that they will soon be embroiled in a wager that will require the beautiful Miss Forrester's help - or that there’ll be far more at stake in this gamble than money.

A wonderful and inspiring story
Would you listen to Let It Be Me again? Why?
I would certainly relisten this story. It is a testament to the mixture of the arts. I actually found and played the pieces mentioned in the story on youtube as a background to the story's unfolding. I finished off with a rendering of Beethoven's 9th Symphony from the reuniting of the two German states with renowned composer/conductor Leonard Bernstein in the lead. Magnificent!!! I almost felt like Bridget at the premiere of the piece.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Let It Be Me?
The moment she 'got' the spirit of the Sonata. The entire scene is romantic, erotic and beautiful.
Have you listened to any of Alison Larkin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have listened to another recording from Alison Larkin. I like her clear voice and British accent.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The moment at the end where everything comes together and life changes completely for Bridget.
Any additional comments?
A wonderful story. I love the interwoven music and romance story. As inspiration to listen to great music this is brilliant.
