I travel. Sometimes I travel by boat, plane, or automobile. Sometimes I travel by book. Sometimes I explore the real world. This week I rambled on to York with the Seahaven daughters. Lady Barbara Bigglesworth insisted I accompany her to the York Royal Theatre, and I have to say I was impressed. Founded in 1744, it was built on the site of a medieval hospital and some archways and other features dating to the twelfth century are still in place. There is even a well beneath the structure that may date to Roman times! The rest of it is an impressive monument to the theatre arts, home to companies the perform throughout Yorkshire and nationally noted artists, actors, and musicians. Of course Lady Barbara’s primary interest is music. Or rather one particular musician, but we’ll leave that until you read her story.

But then, a chance encounter with an unconventional and mysterious young piano tuner has her heart in a spin. Can she trust him? And can she save him from the lethal threat hanging over them both?
