While the celebrated opera singer Terri Ivory is in hospital, facing what could be the end of her career, her daughter Julie stumbles upon a long-buried secret that forces her to question her past and her place in her mother's affection.
In their empty house that no longer seems like a home, mother and daughter try to keep their closeness to each other and to the men they love: damaged Teo, whose passion for Terri borders on the self-destructive, and Julie's first love, Alistair, who fails to predict the consequences of his decision to join the army.
When calamity strikes, all four must make vital choices to find their way forward. Can love and music heal when medicine cannot?

Songs of Triumphant Love is as good if not better than Jessica Duchen's previous books. I loved it.The characters are wonderfully real and it's full of musical content as well as the problems and indecisions of normal life. The ending was never a foregone conclusion, it could have gone several ways.
A really, really good, entertaining, and well written book and the narrator does a great job with Terry's Glaswegian accent.
