And to the author I say thank you. My heart, my soul -all of me - needed these words, these friends, this love. I am forever changed by the beauty of your talent. Lisa M.Gott - Amazon reviewer
I am a great fan of Tess Thompson's books and this new one definitely shows her branching out with an engaging enjoyable historical drama/love story. She is a true pro in the way she weaves her storyline, develops true to life characters that you love! The background and setting is so picturesque and visible just from her words. Each book shows her expanding, growing and excelling in her art. Yet another one not to miss. Buy it you won't be disappointed. The ONLY disappointment is when it ends!!! Sparky's Last
There are some definite villains in this book. Ohhhh, how I loved to hate them. But I have to give Thompson credit because they never came off as caricatures or one dimensional. They all felt authentic to me and (sadly) I could easily picture them. I loved to love some and loved to hate others. The Baking Bookworm
I stayed up the entire night reading Duet For Three Hands and unbeknownst to myself, I fell asleep in the middle of reading the book. I literally woke up the next morning with Tyler the Kindle beside me (thankfully,still safe and intact) with no ounce of battery left.
I shouldn't have worried about deadlines because, guess what? Duet For Three Hands was the epitome of unputdownable. The Bookish Owl
From the Author
What can I say about this book that conveys the journey from pen to publication? The idea and characters for Duet came to me in a flash, almost like from a divine source. However, it took probably a dozen rewrites to get it right. I was determined to get it right before I released it, so it sat on my desk for four years. Like a man I couldn't let go of, I kept coming back to it for one more rewrite. Finally, I had a version that I thought was ready for the world.
Everything I believe about the world is in this book. It's about how faith and love and courage will always lead you down the right path. It's about passing what you know on to the next generation. It's about family and art and fighting for what's right. It's about how light and love will always conquer darkness and hatred. Of all the books I've written, this is the one I'm proud to leave for my children.
