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

Nationally acclaimed conductor Nathaniel Tate Whitcomb is Nashville’s new orchestra leader. And despite a reluctant muse—and a strange buzzing and recurring pain in his head—he mustfinish composing his symphony before the grand opening of the city’s new opera hall. But far more pressing, he must finish it for the one who first inspired his love of music—his father, who is dying. 
As Tate’s ailment worsens, he believes Rebekah can help him finish his symphony. But how do you win back a woman’s trust when you’ve robbed her of her dream?

My Thoughts:
I have something to confess.

You know the old saying, don’t judge a book by its cover?

Well….I judged. I judged hard. I mean, just look at how absolutely GORGEOUS Tamera Alexander’s latest cover is!! How anyone could not judge this book to be delightful based on the cover is beyond me. Truth be told, I was completely unprepared for how perfectly exquisite of a story A Note Yet Unsung held.

Born to play the violin, Rebekah Carrington has spent years under the tutelage of a famous maestro in Vienna, thanks to her benevolent and beloved grandmother. But when her grandmother suddenly passes away, Rebekah finds herself called home by her distasteful step-father, who has squandered away all the family inheritance. Accepting that she must lower her social status to find a job, Rebekah hopes to addition for the newly opened violinist rule in the Nashville Philharmonic. There’s a catch though -only men are allowed in the Nashville Philharmonic. But surely she can change the maestro’s mind when she auditions…or so she hopes.

Nathaniel Whitcomb, the Nashville Philharmonic’s newest, and also youngest, maestro is quickly reaching his deadline for the grand opening of the city’s new opera hall. A deadline that mandates he have a new symphony ready for the masses to listen in awe of. But Nathaniel’s composing is not going as well as he would have hoped and the strange buzzing and blurring of his senses is not helping matters. Not to mention the added pressure being placed on him by his benefactor and the stress of his sickly father who is on his deathbed. What Nathaniel needs is an assistant, someone who can help him finish his symphony before opening night. When Rebekah shows up on his doorstep, is this the miracle he was hoping for?

A Note Yet Unsung is a melodious masterpiece that merges together the traditional societal constraints with the exciting, new freedom of woman’s rights beginning to unfold. While this is the third and final book in the Belmont Mansion series, A Note Yet Unsung works amazing as a stand-alone novel. This novel is set to release on January 31, 2017. Pre-order your copy now on Amazon or CBD!
