[nice tight clean copy, mild wear at base of spine but appears unread; jacket has some very minor wrinkling and one tiny closed tear at top of front panel]. "An inspirational story of young love and the transforming power of music -- a novel that will engage and delight everyone who believes that wonderful things can happen to good people. On the Korean peninsula during the freezing winter of 1951, a wounded American soldier finds a rare violin hidden in the wall of a farmhouse where he has taken refuge. This is the beautifully told story of how a centuries-old Stradivarius came to be in that unlikely place and how it changed the life of all who possessed it. For this great instrument carries with it a kind of magic and all who use it well are wrapped in its beneficent spirit. It is also the story of two families from different cultures and different parts of the world -- one rural, Baptist, Southern; the other, sophisticated, European, Jewish. The link between them is an abiding love of great music, possession of the violin, and the boy genius from the mountains of West Virginia, Ailey Barkwood."
