Fiona Sinclair knows she must do all that she can to earn her release from prison. A childhood of neglect, years of homelessness and drug abuse have all but eroded the good in her. When she is given a battered flute as part of her music therapy, she begins to hear a tune that has both haunted and enchanted her since childhood and she draws from it the strength she needs to carry on. By chance she learns that her mysterious tune is the second movement of a recently discovered Vivaldi concerto that has lain hidden in Scottish archives for three hundred years. But Fiona doesn’t listen to classical music and this piece has not been played for centuries.
As Fiona’s tries to solve the mystery of Vivaldi’s Lost Concerto the novel takes the reader back to 18th Century Venice and into the lives of the composer Antonio Vivaldi, his lover Paolina Giro and Lord Robert Kerr, the young nobleman who bought the concerto while on a Grand Tour away from battle weary Jacobean Scotland.
