The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me - Lucy Robinson (2014)

Sally is in love with opera and has been since she was a child but a family tragedy during her childhood makes her family want to shun all forms of attention, causing Sally to retreat to the safety of her wardrobe to sing instead of seeking out the spotlight. As she gets older, and gets a job with the Royal Opera as a wardrobe mistress, Sally finds watching others sing on stage more than enough. Her job is everything to her. When she is sent to New York for work, she meets Julian, a man who will change her life forever and by the end of the trip Sally needs to keep her promise to "seize the day". Can she actually step into the spotlight though, after all the years of closet-singing? Can she forgive the one person who destroyed her entire world? Written with Lucy Robinson's usual humour, this is a fun story of finding yourself and learning to stick up for what you believe in when people step on your toes. It's about going for your dreams even if others think they're silly. You'll definitely love Sally and you might love Julian too, a little bit at first but more as the story goes on. (AS)

The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me, by Lucy Robinson, is about a singer who doesn't like singing in public. The synopsis says: "Sally is an incredible singer but she sings only in her wardrobe where nobody can hear her. She'd rather join a nudist colony than sing in public. That is until she ventures to New York where a wild and heady summer of love and loss changes her forever. No longer able to hide in the shadows, Sally must return home to London to fulfill a promise she cannot break - to share her voice. But just as she's about to embark on her new life, a beautiful man turns up on Sally's doorstep bearing a sheepish smile and a mysterious hand-written message. How did he find her? Why is he here? Does he hold the truth to what happened back in New York? And, with him back on the scene, will she still have the courage to step into the spotlight?" The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me is out in June 2014.
