I had so much fun reading this book. A Note Yet Unsung is the third book in the Belmont Mansion series. I have not read the first two, but didn’t feel it was necessary in order to enjoy this one. Alexander took me to another place and time, and I enjoyed every minute. I have never read a book where the main characters were involved in a symphony or composing music. It was fun to see what all went into doing something like that. It also made me appreciate how time consuming it could be. I ended up loving the characters and was rooting for them the whole time. This story follows Rebekah and Tate as the work together to create a masterpiece.

Rebekah’s dream is to play her violin in the Symphony. Unfortunately she lives in a time where most places won’t even think of it. Not too long ago a woman was allowed to join in New York, but Rebekah lives in Nashville. When she finds a way to try out for the orchestra leader, she is disappointed knowing he enjoyed what she played, but still won’t let her join. The more Tate learns about Rebekah, the more he realizes she is the assistant he needs. He only has a short time to finish his symphony and he needs all the help she can give. Rebekah and Tate both have strong opinions on how they are going to work together. Will they be able to put aside their differences and finish before it’s too late?

I appreciated the depth in this book. The characters faced some hard circumstances and often struggled through them. It was nice to read a story where everything wasn’t perfect. Real life and love can be messy. I enjoyed the way the romance unfolded, and couldn’t wait to see if they were going to get their happy ending. I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions expressed are my own.
