STRINGS A LOVE STORY by Megan Edwards

The Merino Rose.
Ted Spencer has a hard enough time believing the celebrated violin really exists. To find it sitting on his coffee table is nothing short of incredible. The stuff of legend, the exquisite Guarnerius has been missing for centuries.

But even though the renowned instrument is a violin lover’s dream come true, it holds only heartache for Ted. The value of the Merino Rose may be beyond measure, but he has acquired it at too high a cost.

Ted found his soul mate when he met Olivia de la Vega his senior year in high school. In the school’s production of Camelot, Ted was cast as Lancelot, Olivia as Guenevere. They should have spent their lives together but strings got in the way—family ties, career objectives, and the tangled web of fate.

Will the Merino Rose bring the two star-crossed lovers together at last, or will their love always remain the melancholy sound of distant violins?

Comments: First of all this story felt so real, nostalgic, and personal to me, as a violist and a person who had an epic high school love. Also, the star -crossed lover is a favorite trope of mine. I was set up to love this book and it was artfully, delicately and precisely executed. There were moments and sentences that were so poignant, so beautifully real, it felt emotional for me. It took me about 10 chapters to really find my groove and that is the only reason I am not giving it 5 stars. Also I wish I would have connected with the characters as much as I did the story. Though I liked them and understood them.
