Catharina Bach sings only for her mother; she is too frightened of her famous father to even speak, let alone sing. Three centuries later, in modern-day Saskatchewan, Hannah Waters struggles to play Bach's Concerto for Two Violins, one she was supposed to have played with her mother. In this deeply moving novel, Hannah and Catharina will find and help each other discover the music within and the courage to express it.
