There are many fantasy books out there, but this is a delightfully different spin on the genre. I loved it and I think young adults, as well as more mature adults, will love it too. I’ve never read a book that depicts music as colorful and magical as this one.
It is well composed and written with a clear voice of hope, lightheartedness and positivity. The storyline flows with ease, simplicity and drama, and not to diminish the experience of a great writer.
Pick up Butterfly Waltz. It’s a rather short read and you will leave with a smile and the inspiration to find your own magic in the music.
