Book Beginnings on Fridays and The Friday 56

Hello, a little bit late for this meme, but I really do not want to miss it. This week I choose a book I have just finished. The Girl in Rose, Haydn's Last Love by Peter Hobday. The beginning comes from the Overture to the book, obviously following a musical work.

Book Beginnings on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader
"Studying history is like reading by candlelight: it takes time for the eyes to become accustomed to the shadows."

The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice
"Back at the house in Bedford Row Fanny, the maid, had raised the alarm and told the Master that Miss Rebecca had left the house early in the morning and got into a gentleman's coach. "
A review will follow on this book, which is well written, but most of it concerns the music world, which might not be such a bad case.


  1. Sounds quite interesting! Have a great week ahead!

    1. Thank you Freda. I have not had time yet to look at the other contributions for last week, but will. Always enjoying to join.

  2. This looks right up my alley. I love fictionalized historical novels. And that cover!

  3. Thank you. I love these kind of books as well. You can always learn something about the people and the times.
