Fern Graham is a journalist who believes herself to be a typical modern woman as she attempts to balance work, home and family. If she sometimes feels that something is missing, she assumes that she is foolish. Fern allows herself to relax by listening to music, especially the voice of Pietro Petrungero, an Italian tenor.
She is stunned when her agent rings her to say that Petrungero is looking for someone to write his biography and wants to interview Fern as he – and his wife – appreciate her work. Weeks after the worst interview ever, Fern gets the assignment and finds herself at the palatial Petrungero villa.
It is not the luxury of the villa that makes Fern think and compare, but the relationship between Pietro and his wife, the famous soprano, Maria-Josefa Conti. There is, however, a malevolent undercurrent in the villa and, while doing her research, Fern uncovers secrets which will stun the opera world.
The assignment takes her to some of the world’s greatest cities and, as she spends more and more time with the singer, she finds herself physically drawn to him. Soon they admit that they are falling in love.
Deeply moral but unable to fight, Fern finds herself torn between two men and two worlds.
Can there be a happy ending or does her future hold only heartache?
