“The gentle breeze brought the sent of the ocean and the flowers into the workshop, where it mingled with the smell of wood and glue. The wind chimes rang softly, and when [Jon] listened carefully, they almost sounded like the silver laughter of a fairy, like the echo of laughter in a hidden glade…Dust motes were dancing lazily in the sunbeams falling through the large, slightly grimy window, and from afar they could hear the bustle of the promenade. Jon sat with the rosewood guitar on his knees, touching the smooth wood over and over, tracing the grain with the tips of his fingers. It reminded him of the surf at sunset; copper curls and whirls, golden lines woven through them. He loved the instrument. Its sound was like molten honey, sweet and soft, each tone a melodious statement.”
The Rosewood Guitar is a journey in imagery, language, color, sound and texture. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Kobras has special feeling for lyrical, sensual prose -- her books are beautifully descriptive. She also creates powerful characters that stay with you long after you've read her books. The Rosewood Guitar will find you flipping eagerly through the pages as the tension builds toward that one moment you've been waiting for since the first page...the words that "start" it all. But I won't spoil it by telling you what those words are - you have to read the book!

If you have already read The Stone Trilogy then this is simply a wonderful bonus.
Mariam Kobras writes with a beautiful, flowing tempo, weaving a story and drawing you into the pages. That when you arrive at the last word on the last page you feel bereft, wanting more. Simply a perfect read. For me, every book was a well deserved 5 star and this book did not disappoint.
Mariam is a wonderful writer & this is a real page turner, I was sorry to reach the end of the book
