But Britta's other great love is for the violin, and her talent is recognized by Brenton Maltese, a conductor from England. He proposes she accept the coveted first chair position in his orchestra...and also his hand in marriage. At a crossroads, Britta must determine what her heart truly longs for--and if she's willing to fight for it.

Book Review

Britta has two loves.    Yuri and the violin.    When Yuri marries she adopts the adage of "if you love something let it go...".     After traveling and perfecting her talents with her violin she returns home.      She is torn when her mother asks her to accompany her to Yuri's home to help deliver his wife's newest baby.     What she discovers is a terrible situation and what transpires leads to her taking in of Yuri's two children.   

While she is taking care of his children, Yuri is hurt in an accident that leaves him in the care of a man who takes care of not only his physical injuries, but also his spiritual ones.     After his recovery, Yuri returns home determined to be a new man to his family to find that his family has disappeared.     What he finds in its place is not only his child he left behind, but a new child which he didn't know existed and Britta whom loves him... even though he doesn't know it yet.

I enjoyed this book although since it is part of a continuation it had a few story lines which would have been more complete from reading the first two books.
