July 2014 Book of the Month.
Sally and Fiona, cousins but brought up together so more like sisters, move to London and later New York. Fiona falls in with a bad lot. Sally has a beautiful voice she chooses to hide. This is typical chic lit stuff. Lots of ups and downs in the pursuit of true love, lots of setbacks and one large slice of tragedy but in true style all works out in the end. It is getting there that is such fun … only this one is perhaps just a tad too long in the middle!
The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me by Lucy Robinson, author of A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger, is a wonderfully witty and gorgeously romantic story of facing your fears and falling in love. Sally is an incredible singer but she sings only in her wardrobe where nobody can hear her. She'd rather join a nudist colony than sing in public. That is until she ventures to New York where a wild and heady summer of love and loss changes her forever. No longer able to hide in the shadows, Sally must return home to London to fulfill a promise she cannot break - to share her voice. But just as she's about to embark on her new life, a beautiful man turns up on Sally's doorstep bearing a sheepish smile and a mysterious hand-written message. How did he find her? Why is he here? Does he hold the truth to what happened back in New York? And, with him back on the scene, will she still have the courage to step into the spotlight? Laugh out loud and follow your heart with Lucy Robinson's The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me. One of Britain's most talented rising stars . (Huffington Post). Warm-hearted and funny . (Sunday Mirror). Romantic and laugh-out-loud hilarious . (Cosmopolitan). The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me is Lucy Robinson's third book and follows on from her highly successful novels The Greatest Love Story of All Time and A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger. Prior to writing Lucy earned her crust in theatre production and then factual television, working on documentaries for all of the UK's major broadcasters. Her writing career began when she started a dating blog for Marie Claire about her fairly pathetic attempt at Internet dating. Lucy lives in Bristol with her partner, The Man. She likes dogs and cheese and horses and seals and cake and baths and she blogs daily about funny things that have made her smile today.
