November, 1941. War and genocide have plunged Europe into darkness. Then, a ray of sunlight: whispers of Aron Beckman, an extraordinary young Jewish musician in Poland who plays the harp that belonged to King David himself. They say that Aron has formed a trio with two fellow prodigies, and that the music is like nothing ever heard before. That it is powerful. That it moves people to do great things. That it can bring the dead back to life. They say the musicians can lift the darkness. And that they are on their way. “This breathtaking novel, a musical story set against the backdrop of the Holocaust, filled with wonder and surprises…will stay with you long after you’ve read the last page. Blumenthal, a remarkably talented craftsman, hits all the right notes.” —Ari L. Goldman, author of The Search for God at Harvard, The Late Starters Orchestra

Jazz Kelly caught a glimpse of a familiar profile the man was Gianni Payne. She had followed his career since their fling in San Francisco.
Gianni went from writing bestselling blockbusters to one of Hollywoods hottest franchises.
The last time they were in the same room together he came close to ruining her life. Their love affair had been a disaster with one saving grace. Jazz knew better than to fall for him again.
But if she knew that why was her heart pounding out of her chest and butterflies chasing each other in her stomach?
There he stood they were once again in the same space of all places a lobby halfway around the world from home. He looked the same only more handsome if that was possible.
Jazz had grown up and matured since her hero worshipping days. Her company, Sierra Designs was a stellar success. It didn’t seem possible that seven years had gone by since their love affair had begun and ended so abruptly.
One thing she knew for certain she had no interest in a Deja Vu of Love.
