When Donitza Kravitch turns up in snowy Portsmouth with a rucksack of clothes and her violin, she had nobody. Constantly on the move and trusting no-one Donitza has always been alone. Through the playing of her violin, she makes friends in unlikely places, and uses her love of music to spread the magic.
Donitza was always a lone and did not make friends easily. She relied on her instincts to survive always staying in the shadows. However, when she played her violin she became the person that every noticed and admired. She was a character you took to straight away and if I met her in the street will bring out my motherly instincts. One of her admirers was Eddy, a sweet natured young man with a heart of gold, this made him an easy target for bullies. Eddy kept his feeling about Donitza hidden, but his small acts of kindness gave it away. Celia a lonely old lady who gave Donitza a roof over her head. Celia was a sweet lady who sensed when Donitza needed help. Suffering her own loss, having someone to care for gave her a purpose. Riley was one of the evilest characters I have ever read about, causing misery wherever he went. A bully and a brute who loved inflicting pain and suffering.
The author wrote a beautiful story and draws you in from the first page. Using a handful of characters, lets you get to know them in detail and Donitza story is tragic in parts. The magic element is throughout the story, whether it be through Donitza’s playing or the stories that her mom told her. I am so glad that I read this story and if you love your stories with an urban fantasy feel then get this book. Not to give anything away but the epilogue was brilliant, I loved what happened and it felt justifiable
