The Lost Melody - Book Review

 Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.

   The Lost Melody by Joanna Davidson Politano is a bit of a historical romance set in the Victorian era, about a young woman named Vivienne Mourdant, a concert pianist. When her father dies, Vivienne inherited everything of his, including a patient at the Hurstwell Asylum. With a memory of the face, but no knowledge to who this person is, Vivienne sets out to see what she can find. Things start to become hazy when she is told this person doesn't exist in the Asylum and never has. She starts to wonder if she is becoming mad, hearing music no one else can hear, receiving notes with rose petals between them, and uncovering secrets everybody denies. Vivienne knows in her heart, that there is more to this, and she refuses to give up. Do you think she will find the answers she needs to know? You have to read the book to find out!

   After reading, this book has stuck with me throughout the weeks. It was such a different kind of story than I have read before. It felt a little spooky with mystery, yet it was beautifully written, without the focus on romance. Reading about Vivienne's experiences, with glimpses of her childhood past and hopeful future, really made me respect her as a person. She was brave and strong, even when you expected her to crumble. Getting a look into a Victorian era asylum was also very intriguing to read about. Though the story started slow and confusing, it definitely picked up and was worth the read.
