“Play the Beaufort flute, and you will see the future.” That’s what they say in Angel River. But is it a blessing, or a curse?
In 1895, Azélie Damont crosses the ocean alone. Forsaken by her family, betrothed to a man she’s never met, and entrusted with an object which is to become the stuff of legend, Azélie carries a secret that may chase her to the grave, and beyond.
More than a century later, Josie Sullivan has become the custodian of her family’s music store after her mother’s untimely passing. The little shop was always a place of magic, but as the bills have mounted and the customers have drifted away, enchantment has turned to desperation. Faced with the loss of everything she holds dear, Josie decides to leverage the only valuable thing she owns: the fabled Beaufort flute.
Passed down through generations, bequeathed to Josie’s mother by a local recluse, the antique instrument is still an object of mystery. As she digs into the flute’s peculiar past, Josie discovers new love, unearths a family secret, and learns truths about herself that change her life forever.
