Publisher's Summary

Growing up in the early years of the 20th century, Joe Dooley allows his love for music and his passionate friendships with other young men to blind him to the tides of revolution rising around him in British-dominated Ireland. When he realizes he can't support himself teaching music in Dublin, he enlists in the British Army's peacetime reserves - only to be swept up by the Great War convulsing Europe. Guiding his men through the chaos of the Western Front, Joe comforts himself with music and memories of dear friends: adventurous Severin Coole, an Irish Nationalist, and fiercely loyal Harry Vogeler, an expatriate of Germany. A sniper's bullet throws Joe into the care of conscientious objector Davy Rose, in whose arms he begins to discover a kind of love he had not believed possible. But then he learns that Severin is actively working to liberate Ireland of the British yoke, and during the Christmas Truce discovers Harry across the trenches in the German army. Loyalties increasingly divided, Joe must choose which cause is truly his and which man will be his true partner.

It’s ok

It’s a better read than it is a listen. And you got to push through the boring bits to get to the good part of the story.

Needs editing

What did you like best about The Music Teacher? What did you like least?

A decent story line but the performance suffers from poor editing. Lines are often repeated - a problem that could easily have been corrected by an audio editor listening to the book before release.
