Publisher's Summary

A captivating novel that evokes the author's New York Times best seller The House at Tyneford.

It's a terrible thing to covet your brother's girl.

New Year's Eve, 1946. Candles flicker, and a gramophone scratches out a tune as guests dance and sip champagne. For one night only, Hartgrove Hall relives better days. Harry Fox-Talbot and his brothers have returned from the war determined to save their once grand home from ruin. But the arrival of beautiful wartime singer Edie Rose tangles the threads of love and duty and leads to a devastating betrayal.

Fifty years later, now a celebrated composer, Fox reels from the death of his adored wife, Edie. But his connection with his four-year-old grandson - a piano prodigy - propels him back into life, and he must ultimately confront his past.

The Song of Hartgrove Hall is an enthralling novel about love and treachery, joy after grief, and a man forced to ask: Is it ever too late to seek forgiveness?

Very disappointing

Unsympathetic characters in a family melodrama, post WWII, struggling to preserve a grand English estate. The narrator's voice was wrong for this story. I loved this author's previous book, "The House at Tyneford", and this was terribly disappointing.

Familial disharmony set in an old English pile

An aging Conductor/Composer living in the old family estate surrounded by the memories of recently dead wife, and his ever present anxious daughters. The eldest and possibly favorite has her own backstory but it is her present situation that brings the old man out of his stupor. The relationship he forges with his grandson, a temperamental toddler brings all the family mystery and drama to the fore.
Historical and heartwarming.

Love how Natasha Solomons creates a beautiful story

I so enjoy and get caught up in the story that Natasha weaves together, makes me hungry for more. She has a knack for descriptive writing and she puts me in the mind of her main character in this case Little Fox or Harry. I found myself in happy tears ( just as she wanted me to) approaching the end of the story. Excellent read. I'm going to read it again or rather listen to it. Also, I very much enjoy listening to this reader/voice. I believe he is the perfect voice for Harry and he did a excellent job changing his voice for the other characters. Easy to follow along.
