Book Review: Nocturne

Nocturne by Andrea Randall & Charles Sheehan-Miles: Savannah Marshall is a gifted flutist and daughter of musical royalty when she enrolls in the elite New England Conservatory of Music. Brilliant, eclectic and passionate, she lives music, but struggles with her plans for the future.

Gregory Fitzgerald is one of the most renowned cellists of his generation. A member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and professor at the Conservatory, he is laser focused on his career to the exclusion of friends, family and especially romance.

When Gregory and Savannah’s paths cross in the classroom, it threatens to challenge more than their wildly differing beliefs on music. Friendships, ethics, and careers are put on the line as Gregory and Savannah play a symphony of passion and heartbreak.

In the final movement, Gregory and Savannah are handed their greatest challenge, as the loss of absolutely everything they've held as truths hangs in the balance.

Lori's thoughts: This is one of those books that catches your attention, so on a whim, you one-click it. Then, for some reason, you don't get to it right away. It sits and sits until finally one day, you decide it's time. Nocturne has been out for a little longer than a year, now and my only regret about reading it is that I didn't get to it sooner. My humble apologies to the authors! I loved this book. It's unique and well-researched. I don't know a thing about the cello or flute or classical music or playing with the symphony but came away from Nocturne feeling like I understand it a little bit better. The love between Gregory and Savannah is something so lyrical and beautiful ... and it will not go away, no matter how long or how far they are from one another. True love never runs smooth and sometimes the best comes from the most painful. If cheating and affairs offends you, this is probably not the book for you. Otherwise, if you're looking for a book to read about a love that is timeless, read Nocturne today!
