Summary Excerpt Comments

A few years ago I found my grandfathers accordion in my parent’s attic, it was old, really old, beautiful and very unique. I started researching the accordion. I contacted the Sopriani Company in Italy. This accordion was very old and rare. The early accordions spread through Europe from fairs, traveling merchants and soldiers returning from wars. My research inspired this book.
Late 1800’s a war between Austria and France, fought in Northern Italy. A handsome cavalry officer falls in love with the beautiful daughter of a traveling musical instrument merchant. The young officer and the beautiful young girl find a deep bond and a connection to an accordion, but the war separates the couple. Plagued by the mental and physical trauma of the war, with his memory clouded the officer Stephan Marcinek returns home to the Ukraine. He struggles to clear his thoughts, until a romantic song played on an accordion jogs his memory and he goes on a frantic search to find his lost love. The search moves beyond their lifetimes, through the decades and from Italy to America. The accordion finally brings them together almost one hundred and fifty years later and half a world apart. But the complications of modern life once again tears them apart and once again a frantic search to find a lost love.
