The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 1 week.


A wonderfully witty and gorgeously romantic story of facing your fears and falling in love, for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Marian Keyes and Rosie Walsh.

Sally is an incredible singer, but nobody has ever heard her. The thought of singing in public fills her with dread.

But then something happens one summer which changes everything.

No longer able to hide in the shadows, Sally must return home to London to fulfil a promise she cannot break - to share her voice.

But just when she's ready to start her new life, a beautiful man turns up on Sally's doorstep with a sheepish smile and a mysterious hand-written message.

How did he find her and why is he here?

Does he hold the truth to what happened back in New York?

And will she still have the courage to step into the spotlight?

Lucy Robinson is the author of The Greatest Love Story of All Time, A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger and The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me. Lucy worked in theatre and then television documentaries before starting a blog for Marie Claire about her laughably unsuccessful foray into the world of online dating. She did not meet a man during this time but she did become a novelist: every cloud has a silver lining. She now lives in Bristol with her partner, The Man, whom she met when she took off to Buenos Aires to become a bohemian writer in 2010.

Customer Reviews

unusual setting for a book - in the world of opera. The unfinished symphony focuses on a girl who is scared to sing in public and can only sing sitting in her wardrobe. She takes on a job working as a wardrobe mistress but her heart is in singing. The story weaves around her and her cousin who dies, and the fall out afterwards plus the romances along the way. Cleverly done jumping back and forth in time, a real page turner!

This is Lucy Robinson’s third book and her best yet to date. I was so pleased when this dropped through my letter box from Real Readers. I laughed and cried throughout. I read this in one go at the weekend. There was the will they won’t they element to this story. The main character is Sally a fantastic opera singer but has no confidence, working in opera but never performing- until she goes to New York and where she experiences a summer of love and also loss but is a life changing experience for her. The descriptions of the opera world and house were interesting and I found this was fascinating. Maybe the title should have been the unfinished opera. Lucy Robinson writes for today and this was at a good pace. Fans of Jojo Moyes will love this book. This book will be out on the 19th June- just in time to be on the shelves at the airport and to upload to the Kindle for the summer and the beach. Good story line, good chick lit book.
