Two children, meeting in nineteenth century New York, form a lifelong bond of kindred spirits. Together they challenge the mores of the time as they grow through their shared love of music; which leads them to Dickens readings, Suffragette meetings, performances conducted by Brahms, and the depth of the Civil War. Chapter one opens in a mansion on Fifth Avenue during the middle of the 1800’s.
