Description of A Note Yet Unsung

From beloved USA Today bestselling author Tamera Alexander comes the final and much anticipated novel in the Sweeping Belmont Mansion Series

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

Nationally acclaimed conductor Nathaniel Tate Whitcomb is Nashville’s youngest 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 symphony hall. Even more pressing, he must finish it for the one who first inspired his love of music–his dying father. As Tate’s ailment worsens, he knows Rebekah can help him finish his symphony. But how can he win back her trust when he’s robbed her of her dream?

My review of A Note Yet Unsung

What a wonderful story! I fell in love with the charaters in this book. I was sad when the story ended knowing  that this would be the last book in the series. I  adore Adelicia Cheatham.

If  you haven’t read the other books in this series, don’t worry about it. Each book is a stand alone book, but let me assure you, once you have read one of them, you will want to read the others. They are that good.

Tamera Alexander has a knack for finding an interesting histoircal place and using that as the setting for a novel. In this particular series it is the Belmont Mansion in Nashville, Tennessee. We get a glimpse into life in Nashville in the early 1870’s.

A Note Yet Unsung tells the story of Rebekah Carrington. Rebekah is a  woman who posses an extraordinary  musical gift, but ue to the contrains of polite society at the time, is unable to perform her music in public.

Nathaniel Tate Whitcomb is the talented orchestra conductor who is determined to complete a symphony he is writing as a tribute to his dying father. Nathaniel has a medical condition that is making it difficult for him to achieve his goal.

Rebekah becomes Tate’s assistant and agrees help him complete his symphony. Their journey is beautifully written.

If you are a history buff like I am you will thouroughly enjoy this wonderful novel. Pick up your copy today.
