“…AND THE MUSIC PLAYED: A Short Story”
e-book format only at the present time: $.99
This book is the sequel and the final chapter in the love story between Giani and Christine. The first book, “IF ONLY THERE WAS MUSIC…The Poetry of Forbidden Love” (a co-authored project), was a love story told thru the eyes of two lovers…but written for the hearts of many.
Across oceans and thru many barriers, two hearts try to connect – but with the distance between them, will their love survive? And, with the forces-that-be against them coming in the form of murder plots and domestic abuse, the bigger question is…will they?
“I just finished reading: “If Only There Was Music… The Poetry of Forbidden Love” the book of poetry that precedes this short story. Instead of going to sleep I had to know how it all ended and immediately started reading “…And the Music Played”. The couple in a forbidden love were both married to other people. Christine in an abusive marriage, and Giani in a loveless one. A murder plot is twisted into this love story nicely with plenty of action. I was drawn in and rooting for Christine and Giani. You can read this well-written short story as a stand-alone, but I recommend you read the book of poetry first.” ~ Author, D. L. Finn
“Having read “If Only There Was Music…The Poetry of Forbidden Love,” I was drawn to reading this short story. Brief though it is, it brought the book to its conclusion. Through one intense circumstance after another, the reader accompanies the lovers through their struggles and to their ultimate decision. Well-written with strong dialogues and descriptive verse, this is a short story that readers will long remember.” ~ Author, Gwen Plano
