Everyone needs the chance to be new, at one time or other. The chance to experience different sights and sounds, the ability to be open to learning new things and new ways of being. To let go of a (slightly) disastrous past and face the world with a fresh perspective.
That’s how Bridget Forrester feels, in Let It Be Me, when she takes advantage of a tree falling on her house to persuade her family to go to Venice for the season. She needs a fresh start – last season was abysmal, living in her sister’s shadow. In Venice, she can be someone different, someone mysterious – and she’s been invited to study piano with the renowned composer Vincenzo Carpenini. It will be the grandest adventure of Bridget’s life.
The only problem is, when she arrives, Carpenini has never heard of her. But his friend, theater-owner Oliver Merrick has. He’s been writing letters on Carpenini’s behalf, and the minute he sees Bridget’s green, trusting eyes, he knows he’s only invited trouble to Venice.
But when Carpenini and Oliver get Bridget involved in a wager, she is thrust into the glittering and dangerous world of Venice’s musical elite, and she must work harder than she has ever worked in her life. She must transform herself from an amateur into a master pianist. But as difficult as it is, with Oliver at her side, it is something magical.
It becomes the grandest adventure of Bridget’s life.
