Elliot, Camille. Prelude for a Lord. Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan. 2014.
Lady Alethea Sutherton inherited a beautifully sounding Stradivarius violin from Lady Arkright. Unbeknownst to her, someone is searching for the violin and will stop at nothing to recover it. Set in the Regency Period, Prelude for a Lord just keeps delivering a most compelling read…
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Drawn to this book by the front cover, then further intrigued by the summary provided on the back cover, I knew I wanted to read this book. I enjoyed the time period (Regency), the mystery involving the violin, the strength of the main character, the faith drawn upon in times of need and of course, the developing romance. Coming from a musical family (both violin and piano), I truly appreciated the musical subject-line. The only bit of trouble I encountered was the names of so many people involved and scattered through-out the story- I had a bit of a problem keeping everyone straight (though it did not deter from the actual story itself and the Cast of Primary Characters list in the beginning helped immensely). Definitely an author I will pursue again. Well done!
