It was an emergency. Tomorrow I was starting a post-graduate diploma in opera at the Royal College of Music, alongside ten of the world’s most talented young singers. Even though I was not a performer of any kind. Let alone an opera singer, with a wardrobe full of satin gowns and a family who owned a large country estate in Gloucestershire with butlers and horses. I was a quiet girl from a council estate in the Midlands, who hated attention. Did you hear me? I was not an opera singer.
At long bloomin’ last, it’s on its way! My third novel, of which I am truly proud. It took forever to write but it was worth every moment…
Sally is an outstanding singer but only in her wardrobe where nobody can hear her. She’d rather join a nudist colony than sing in public.
For years she’s kept her talent a secret while working as a wardrobe mistress at the Royal Opera House. But a wild, heady summer of love and loss in New York changes her forever and she returns to London having made a promise to step out of the shadows and into the limelight.
The night before she begins her new life at opera school, a beautiful man turns up on Sally’s doorstep bearing a sheepish smile and a mysterious hand-written message. With him come the best and worst memories of Sally’s life and she all-but passes out in the hallway.
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, how will she manage to keep her promise?
