Booklist Review

Pierce Rourke is an internationally respected Denver architect with a troubled past. His father committed suicide when he was 13, and even though he creates buildings that "sing" to him, he doesn't believe that he deserves the love and happiness that is reflected in his work. All that changes when he hears librarian Ana Finch sing at his niece's wedding. She rekindles his own desire to sing, which he hasn't done since his father's death. Ana charms Pierce and the children in the prestigious school where she works, but she suffers from the fear that she will go insane from a genetic disorder. Then an article about an old murder and a missing victim appears in the pages of People magazine, and things get complicated. The climax is not much of a surprise, but Stone's novel, a wonderful continuation of her previous book, A Midnight Clear (1999), is deeply moving, and its mystical overtones are sure to thrill readers. --Patty Engelmann
