The Cellist's Notebook by Kittie Lambton - Book Tour

The Cellist’s Notebook
by Kittie Lambton





Summary:
The Cellist's Notebook is a charming, life-affirming tale of discovery surrounding an old family mystery.
A young girl's curiosity, her love of a little melody and the beauty of a cello evokes memories long
forgotten.

Set in the present day, ten-year-old Emily Peters is spending the summer with her Nana Rose,
a retired piano teacher, in rural Cumbria whilst Emily’s sister Lizzie travels to Paris for a French
exchange.  When Emily notices an old photograph of a cellist dating back to the Second World War
and discovers cellos and an old music manuscript in the attic, her Nana tells of the touching and
compelling story of her brother Leni, a linguist, cellist and music composer, whose disappearance
was marked ‘ultimate fate unknown’ following World War II. 

Emily’s love of the unfinished cello melody, found in her Great Uncle Leni’s music notebook,
evokes memories for her Nana Rose and Emily returns to Norfolk with a passion to play the cello
and a determination to learn the long-lost melody. A series of events unfold that change the life of
Emily and her family forever.
