A fun adventure about finding new friends and the chance of a lifetime.

Twelve-year-old Bella lives in the West and can't quite remember her dead Papa. So when she finds his handwritten music in a leather-bound book, she's thrilled. She's going to study every musical symbol until she can carry his voice with her. Now that her beloved older brother has gone away to school, Papa's book is the only comfort she has left. 

But then Papa's old enemy, Nikodemos, buys the book even though Bella begs him not to. He pressures her into returning a valuable stolen relic to the East, where Mamma is now.

There's one big problem: If she does what Nikodemos wants, she'll frame Papa for theft and her family will pay the penalty, landing Bella in the orphanage. If she doesn't, she'll lose her only chance to know Papa's world and to learn what he most wanted to give.

I'll be posting new chapters every Friday.
