Charming, sometimes overly flowery, loved the music.

I enjoyed the story and the music . I found it was a bit slow in some areas with the descriptions but overall a charming vibe. The time transitions mid chapters were sometimes jarring, would probably translate better with a small musical transition. I found myself having to skip back a couple of times when these happened, thinking I’d missed something. I enjoyed it for the most part. Wonderful rainy day listening.
