Music is not bound by time.

Adeena Stuart and Katharine Carnegie were born nearly three centuries apart. Yet their music and an ancient cello connect them to each other and to a man doomed to die after the Battle of Culloden. 

In Book I of the Song for A Lost Kingdom series, Adeena receives a lost musical score from her dying grandmother in Scotland. When played on the oldest surviving cello ever made in the UK, the music connects Adeena directly to the past as Katharine, struggling to find words to complete her symphonic tour-de-force in the midst of the Jacobite uprising of 1745.

But what Adeena wants more than anything is to compose music and to join the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa. As she is about to realize her wish, she’s lifted away and immersed in her family history.
