Favorite quote: “You’re like a beautiful caged bird, and I want to unlatch the door and set you free.”
The reason why I started this review off with a quote is too show you just how beautiful Sarah Beard’s writing is. She could have been writing about absolutely nothing and I would still read it because her writing has a way of sucking you into the beauty of her words. I just can’t explain to you how beautiful and descriptive her writing is. You have to read this book for yourself.
This book was all about Aria and how she handles her abusive father, her mother’s death, her love of music and Thomas. I know nothing about the piano or music in general, so I thought I was going to have a harder time trying to connect with Aria because a lot of the book was focused on her piano. But I had no trouble at all connecting with the character. If anything it helped me appreciate classical music even more. You could feel the passion and emotion that surged through her whenever she played the piano.
As for Thomas, him and Aria’s connection was almost immediate. I wanted them to be together from the moment they both met each other. As the book goes on Thomas’s and Aria’s relationship gets more deep and intense and burdens and secrets are shared between them both. They had a bond that was very strong from the beginning. They both had their ups and downs as a couple. There were times where I just wanted to throw the book across the room, and other times where I teared up. The love was there the whole time.
By reading my review you know that I absolutely loved everything about this book. I couldn’t put it down, if you haven’t added this book to your to-read pile then you should add it right away!
