Sonata Summer (Volume 1) Paperback – May 15, 2012
|New from||Used from|
Amidst the never-ending awe and wonder of Colorado, Ann Ulrich Miller has written a lovely romantic novel, rich with characters who evoke a myriad of feelings as Colorado can be as dangerous as it is inviting to the creative spirit of her readers! Rhea is a bereft and talented young woman from the Midwest who discovered paradise in Aspen, only to lose her fiancé just days before their wedding to the wilderness they both enjoyed. We meet this piano student, who came to Aspen to study at the Aspen Musical Festival, roughly one year after her loss, when she meets an intriguing man who also loves the outdoors. This novel takes you through grief, fear, discovery and the completeness Rhea experiences when playing the piano and all the electricity falling in love can create within. Letting go of the old and embracing the new is a lesson Rhea must learn, and is especially hard when Parker's spirit jogs (unseen by others) alongside of her on the Rio Grande Trail. How can she be unfaithful to him? The twists and turns of Rhea s misconception and the truths held back from her keep the reader turning the pages of this well told story. I am a longtime lover of Miller's various works and was not disappointed in Sonata Summer. This is a suspenseful and romantic novel created by the author s skill to make you appreciate and feel as if you are transported to Colorado. It s a keeper! --Chrystle Clae, author of Sacred Symbology
Sonata Summer is a well-written, fast-paced read and was thoroughly enjoyable. Once you start, you want to finish. Annie Miller has once again given us a well-constructed, perfectly edited and formatted novel, with a fascinating background of both location and subject matter. I can see Rhea and Trey continuing on their journey through the years and sequels! --Judith Horky, author of EarthShift and Soul Shift: 2012 and Beyond
About the Author
Ann Ulrich Miller lived in Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley of western Colorado in the late 1970s and early 80s. Having been born and reared in the Midwest, the move to the Rocky Mountains had a significant impact on her life. It was at that time that the seeds of spiritual awakening began to sprout. Aspen and its beauty and diversity of thought encouraged her to explore many different belief systems. She worked for the Aspen Times and the Snowmass Village Sun, and in 1984 left with her Forest Service husband and their two young sons to live in Corvallis, Oregon for ten months. When they returned to Colorado in June 1985, they resided in Delta, and their third son was born in November of that year. From her earliest years music was important in her life. She started piano lessons at the age of 4 and is grateful to her parents for encouraging her musical studies all the way through high school, which included French horn in band and orchestra. Writing and publishing have dominated her career, however, and her interest in spirituality led to her metaphysical magazine, The Star Beacon, in print since 1987. Under the name Ann Carol Ulrich she has published The Space Trilogy (Intimate Abduction, Return To Terra and The Light Being) and her series of young adult novels in the Annette Vetter Adventures, set in the late 1960s. Currently living in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, she continues to write romantic suspense under the name Ann Ulrich Miller.

This is a singular POV from Rhea. I actually couldn't wait for the story to end. Rhea & Trey seemed to be pretty weak characters to me. We never really got to know Trey and Rhea didn't even know her own mind. Hot one moment, cold the next. The only time I felt any emotion was when Rhea was remembering her past with Parker. I never felt connected with them as a couple.
