Gems of the imagination flow effortlessly from the pen of Fran Edelstein in this powerful collection of short stories. Composed of seven tales, Set to Music takes you on a dramatic journey into the very depths of the human heart.
Spanning six countries and two continents, the title short story, "Set to Music," tells of Anne, a pianist faced with an overwhelming obstacle that only love-and perhaps even a miracle-can transcend. An island resort provides a quiet retreat for a parent's soul-searching in "Head Over Heart," while "Deedu" is a tender and engaging story about a special friendship between a child and a Russian immigrant.
Sweeping away time, two World War II survivors uniquely relive their past as they meet again in "Lilacs," and life and death in a hospital morgue create a curious dialogue about how we as humans navigate this world in "The Paper Boat." In "The Road Ahead," doubts and fears turn to triumphs for a group of actors encountering a major detour as they head for the Eiffel Tower, while "The Mantilla" tells the riveting story of how a lace mantilla spreads mischief.
Vivid, heartfelt, and beautifully written, Set to Music creates an emotional tapestry of the human soul.
