Will fate intercede to keep them apart just as they've found one another?Tamsin Hayes can forgive her mother—the renowned violinist known as the Faerie Queen—for leaving her family in favor of travelling the world as fame and fortune dictated before disappearing altogether.

So with her remaining family depending on her, Tamsin accepts a place with a symphony in Cambridge with bills and expectations dogging her every step.

He is therefore not, precisely, pleased when a violinist takes up residence of the small cottage at the edge of the property. But when inspiration continues to fail him, it is Tamsin who gives him a new, unexpected reason to compose. To plan for the future.
