Emilia Salvini dreams of marrying a man who loves music as she does. But in 18th-century Milan, being the "second sister" means she'll likely be sent to a convent instead. Emilia's only hope is to prove her musical talents crucial to her father's quest for nobility. First, though, she must win over her music tutor, who disdains her simply for being a girl. Too late, Emilia realizes that her success could threaten not only her dreams for her future but her sister's very life.

The novel was inspired by two amazing sisters who were far ahead of their time, one a mathematician and the other a composer.
