Sarah Beard - Porcelain Keys

8. Porcelain Keys by Sarah Beard (2013)
Length: 346 pages
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Started: 1 February 2014
Finished: 3 February 2014
Where did it come from? Many thanks to Sarah Beard for sending me a copy of this book to read.
How long has it been on my TBR pile? Since 2 January 2014
Why do I have it? I like contemporary romance and Sarah Beard is a new author for me.

Aria's life is full of secrets - secrets about her mother's death, her father's cruelty, and her dream to go to Juilliard. In the five years since her mother's death - Aria has grieved silently and essentially alone - playing her mother's piano in secret, so as not to stir up any painful memories for her father. When Aria meets Thomas - her elderly next door neighbor's grandson - he draws out her secrets, captures her heart, and ultimately gives her the courage to defy her father. However when personal tragedy strikes and Thomas disappears, Aria is left alone to transform her heart's melody into something beautiful - courageous enough to follow her dreams, where ever they may take her.

I absolutely loved reading this book. The story was so poignant and engaging - I was captured from the first page, and just had to find out what happened next. This was the first book by Ms. Beard that I've ever read, but it most certainly won't be my last. I give this book an A+! and look forward to reading more by this author in the near future.

A+! - (96-100%)
 
May you read well and often
