Publisher's Summary

This is the story of a love song...and like any good love song, it has two parts.

In Australia, Arie Johnson waits impatiently for classical pianist Diana Clare to return from a world tour, hopeful that after seven years together she'll finally agree to marry him. 

On her travels, Diana composes a song for Arie. It's the perfect way to express her love, knowing they'll spend their lives together. Won't they?

Then late one night, her love song is overheard, and begins its own journey across the world.

In Scotland, Evie Greenlees is drifting. It's been years since she left Australia with a backpack, a one-way ticket and a dream of becoming a poet. Now she spends her days making coffee and her nights serving beer. And she's not even sure whether the guy she lives with is really her boyfriend or just a flatmate.

Then one day she hears an exquisite love song. One that will connect her to a man with a broken heart....

Absolute Delight

This was my Mother’s Day read and I loved the day.
The Lost Love Song has to be one of the best books I’ve read- and I read all the time
Books set in Australia also appeal
I must admit I’m partial to the Aussie accent and Marcello Fabrizi has a a beautiful baritone voice.
( He sounds Aussie, even if his name is dubious)

The song affected so many people’s lives and spread like a Chinese Whisper around the world.
It was played by all different musical instruments and formats, yet remained true to its origin so that anyone that heard the song remembered the tune.

Aussie love story

I found it slow to start but I really loved it in the end. The author is very talented in how she pieces things together and puts so much depth into her books. Highly recommend. Thank you.

Could not finish

As much as I loved Minnie Darke's first book, I did not like this one. I tried to finish the book but gave up with 5 hours to go.
The story is very drawn out, at times overly discriptive, with a lot of boring unnecessary "fillers".
Aianwen's story telling was great as usual, Marcello was ok.
