Throughout my book ‘The Grace of a Nightingale’ you will discover how music has enabled me to find solace, beauty, love and hope during some of my darkest times. I have been able to dance when I could have crumpled, exchange despair for peace and freedom from prolonged misery.
Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.
Many musicians have inspired me since I was a young girl. I feel indebted to their gifts and commitment.
