About:

A master violinist trained in Vienna, Rebekah Carrington manages to wheedle her way into an audition with the maestro at the newly formed Nashville Philharmonic. But women are “far too fragile and frail” for the rigors of an orchestra, and Rebekah’s hopes are swiftly dashed because the conductor–determined to leave his mark on the world of classical music–bows to public opinion. To make matters worse, Adelicia Acklen Cheatham, mistress of Belmont Mansion and Rebekah’s new employer, agrees with him.

Nationally acclaimed conductor Nathaniel Tate Whitcomb is Nashville’s new orchestra leader. And despite a reluctant muse–and a strange buzzing and recurring pain in his head–he must finish composing his symphony before the grand opening of the city’s new opera hall. But far more pressing, he must finish it for the one who first inspired his love of music–his father, who is dying. As Tate’s ailment worsens, he believes Rebekah can help him finish his symphony. But how do you win back a woman’s trust when you’ve robbed her of her dream?

As music moves us to tears yet makes our hearts soar, A Note Yet Unsung captures the splendor of classical music at a time when women’s hard-won strides in cultural issues changed not only world history–but the hearts of men.

My thoughts and giveaway:

Believe it or not I have never read a book by Tamera. I just have never gotten around to it. But now I see what all the fuss is about. She is an extremely talented author.

Reading this book was like meeting an old friend. I easily fell into step with this story. It helped, of course, that the main character was a musician. I could very much relate to her love of music.

Rebekah is an easy character to like. She is struggling with her role as a female musician and something is also up with her step-father. Things that are hinted at early in the book had me very concerned for Rebekah’s safety and the support she would receive from her mother.

Tate is likable too (but not to Rebekah right away). But since we know his thoughts we can understand where he is coming from with the decisions he had to make.

I couldn’t wait to see how Tamera would unveil their relationship and how these two would fall in love. It didn’t disappoint.

If you enjoy historical romance I have no doubt you would enjoy this book.
