November, 1941. War and genocide have plunged Europe into darkness. Then, a ray of sunlight: whispers of Aron Beckman, an extraordinary young Jewish musician in Poland who plays the harp that belonged to King David himself.  
They say that Aron has formed a trio with two fellow prodigies, and that the music is like nothing ever heard before. That it is powerful. That it moves people to do great things. That it can bring the dead back to life. 
They say the musicians can lift the darkness. And that they are on their way.

Review:

 "This breathtaking novel, a musical story set against the backdrop of the Holocaust, filled with wonder and surprises...will stay with you long after you've read the last page. Blumenthal, a remarkably talented craftsman, hits all the right notes."
   --Ari L. Goldman, author of The Search for God at Harvard, The Late Starters Orchestra

"I simply couldn't put this book down. The way the music created an entire myth that kept people alive...was brilliantly and beautifully written, almost biblical in its depth. The Kiss is a heartbreaking, unforgettable love song. It is gorgeous historical fiction. I didn't want it to end. Everyone should be reading this book."
   --Julie Silver, singer and songwriter

"Moving...powerful. Blumenthal's debut novel keeps us asking the big questions."
   --Katharine Weber, author of The Music Lesson, Triangle, True Confections

"The Kiss is both brutal and breathtaking...in a way that is utterly fresh, altogether original. I couldn't put it down, and when the end came I couldn't bear to part with it. A stunning, heartbreaking page-turner."
   --Elizabeth Volpe, author of Brewing in Eden
