9780987320308: Amati - Of Chance and Coincidence (Volume 1)

How the talented violinist Charles Kinsmith's chance encounter with the beautiful but mysterious Claudia Bertolini is revisited one year later on board a passenger liner en-route to Australia in 1885 is poignantly revealed in this most unusual yet fascinating historical romantic novel by Australian author Andrew Ryan. Set against the soul-crushing modes of the nineteenth century it reveals the couple's plight to freely exercise their right to personal expression in a society hostile to change. Fear of being humiliated for side-stepping the accepted rules of social behaviour, a dying man's life-long search to be reunited with his estranged family and the benevolent compassion of a first generation Australian widow all come together to show how easily, yet sub-consciously chance and coincidence weaves its way through each of the characters lives in this haunting and powerful novel.

About the Author:

Described as an innovative and creative chef by an international gourmet critic in one of Western Australia's leading newspapers, Andrew Ryan finally set aside his professional cooking skills to retire in Fremantle, Western Australia. Born a third generation Australian, he readily admits that writing had always been an ardent passion of his, and now feels deeply privileged to at last have the time to release that creative part of his makeup. The father of two children, and the proud grandfather of two beautiful little girls, all to whom he bequeaths his literary work as a lasting symbol for his deep respect for the power and beauty of the written word.

Review:

congratulations, I must say,  you are a brilliant writer; you have a unique talent that captivates your reader and draws them into your story. You have created a touching love story that allows your reader's to feel the love that Charles and Claudia have for each other. 

Thank you,
Eleanor
