Contemporary Fantasy. In this sequel to The Hum and the Shiver, musician Rob Quillen travels to Cloud County, Tennessee after the tragic death of his girlfriend. Cloud County is home to the Tufa, an insular clan of musically gifted, magic-wielding people descended from the Fae, which makes it Rob's best hope for finding a song carved in stone with the power to heal his broken heart. However, the Tufa distrust outsiders, especially ones like Rob, who can see things that ordinary mortals shouldn't be able to perceive. Don't miss this haunting, lyrical story, set in an atmospheric Appalachian community in which old magic coexists uneasily with modern society.

Four years after her husband's death, still-grieving Liv Halston's most cherished possession is a painting her husband bought for her on their honeymoon. Now, she's in danger of losing it to the descendants of painting's original owner. To keep it, she must learn the history behind the painting and discover what happened to Sophie, the painting's 22-year-old subject. Set in both 2006 London and German-occupied France in 1916, the parallel stories of Liv and Sophie make for gripping love stories and thought-provoking reads.
