Book News: The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me by Lucy Robinson

Lucy Robinson is back this year with her third novel, and I cannot wait to read it! The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me is out on July 7th 2014 and sounds amazing, just the sort of thing I love to read. I've loved both of Lucy's previous so I'm already super excited to read this, even though there's quite a few months to wait yet!

"Sally is an outstanding singer and – with the possible exception of a nice cup of tea and a slice of cake – she loves singing more than anything else in the world. Unfortunately, she only loves singing in her wardrobe where nobody can hear her: she’d rather cut her head off than sing in public.

For years she’s managed to hide her prodigious talent and has worked as a wardrobe mistress at the Royal Opera House. But then a wild, heady summer of love and loss in New York changes her life and she returns to London having made a promise to audition for Opera School . . . and to her utter horror, she’s offered a place.

The night before term starts, a tired, beautiful-looking man turns up on Sally’s doorstep with an old hand-written message in his hand and a nervous smile on his face. With him come the best and worst memories of Sally’s life and she is stunned speechless . . . Although she still manages to attack him with a piece of pork belly.

How did he find her? Why is he here? And, with him back on the scene, how can she possibly fulfil her promise to train as a singer?"
