Review ~ Nocturne by Andrea Randall and Charles Sheehan-Miles

Savannah Marshall is a gifted flutist and daughter of musical royalty when she enrolls in the elite New England Conservatory of Music. Brilliant, eclectic and passionate, she lives music, but struggles with her plans for the future.

Gregory Fitzgerald is one of the most renowned cellists of his generation. A member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and professor at the Conservatory, he is laser focused on his career to the exclusion of friends, family and especially romance.

When Gregory and Savannah’s paths cross in the classroom, it threatens to challenge more than their wildly differing beliefs on music. Friendships, ethics, and careers are put on the line as Gregory and Savannah play a symphony of passion and heartbreak. 

In the final movement, Gregory and Savannah are handed their greatest challenge, as the loss of absolutely everything they’ve held as truths hangs in the balance.

My Review
I was a little apprehensive about reading a book written by two authors. How can two people write a book without having it seem like, well.... two people are writing a book? The answer I came up with? I DON'T Know. But they pulled it off. No, they didn't just pull it off, they excelled. I had to break this book down into days. The emotions were so overwhelming I couldn't read it all at once. I wanted to. I wanted to start on page one and not let go until the end. But my heart couldn't take it. There was so much turmoil and heart break.

How do I know I just read a book that will stay with me and affect me for years to come? When I can't even put into words what it made me feel. This story and these characters pulled such strong emotions from me. I haven't cried over characters like this in a long time. It should be no surprise really. I've read all of Andrea's books and they always make me feel more than the average book. I have to say I love Andrea's work, but couple it with Charles and you have a book that is destined for greatness. 

I received this book from the authors in exchange for my honest opinion.
