In a saga inspired by childhood memories, the vanished charm of a bygone era embraces Lucy Salvatori and her brothers as they face the challenges of life with a flamboyant, eccentric father known as Maestro, who runs a small opera house. With long buried family secrets complicating every aspect of her family’s life, intense joy and heartache mark Lucy's journey to adulthood and her chosen career in music. When an unforeseen turn of events compromises Lucy’s decision about her love life, she is left guilt ridden and devastated; and flees to Siena to reclaim her life. The trip changes Lucy’s view of her world, and when the truth of Maestro’s hidden past is revealed, old wounds begin to heal and the Salvatoris learn the power of love and forgiveness. Against a backdrop that shifts from Italy to the streets of Brooklyn, through two wars and the advent of television and rock and roll, from a tenement apartment to a dusty pink stucco house, and with an unforgettable cast of characters that include the local strega (witch), a formidable but wise nun, a Hollywood movie star and an opera diva, the power of friendship, loyalty, faith and family teaches the Salvatoris about life’s inspiring possibilities.

"The characters come to life, especially for readers who grew up in Italian-American communities at that time, and Gestri has clearly done her homework about Italy, American history and opera."
