Crushed with the rejection of joining a world-renowned orchestra, a modern-day cellist finds new hope in an unexpected summons to Scotland. Adeena’s dying grandmother has a gift for her; a lost music score that Adeena performs on the oldest surviving cello ever made in the United Kingdom.

As she plays… magic happens… time transforms…

A connection is made through the music to Katharine, another young cellist and composer in Scotland, though the year is 1745.

Their connection is cemented by the love of the same man doomed to die after the Battle of Culloden in 1746. The magic of a priceless cello connects two souls that share the same heart in all that truly matters to them – love and the maddening drive to compose and to perform.

In ‘Music is Not Bound by’ Time, Book I of the Song for a Lost Kingdom trilogy, the timeless power of music transcends the limitations of the ordinary world for those who truly listen through their heart.

Get swept away in this historical time-slip fantasy-adventure powered by music that refuses to be bound by time – and an impossible love that defies the tragic fate already determined by history.

I had a hard time with this novel, Adeena is passionate about her music, to the disregard of all else.

I found her character very hard to like. Her ability to manipulate the people around her, then throw a tantrum when things don’t go her way was a complete turn off for me.

I love the idea of this story. It reminded me a lot of Outlander, with the change in premise that only her mind and soul travels.

I had to mark this book as a DNF, did not finish. The characters were hard for me to like, especially Adeena. After struggling every time I sat down to read, I ended up just calling it. Hopefully I will be able to come back to this one in the future, but for now…..

From the author:

I have always been drawn to passion and creativity in all its forms. I am equally fascinated by the mechanics of the universe and the characters of history. I have a special affection for the power of music which I believe is the universal language of human emotion. My writing journey started in journalism, public relations and advertising

I then continued into software development. I have been writing novels full-time for a couple of years now and recently completed my first series, Song for a Lost Kingdom, (Books I, II and III, plus The Prequel). I am currently working on a new project on the life of Pytor Tchaikovsky, and will soon be starting on a new historical fantasy series. I grew up in London, Ontario (Canada) and also lived in Pompano Beach, Florida as a teenager. I moved to Ottawa and attended Carleton University many years ago and now live just south of the city with my wife and our two dogs.
