Product Description

In the mid 1800’s women were not allowed to play music in public.

This is the third novel in the Belmont Mansion series about a gifted woman who was truly a woman before her time. As a young child Rebekah’s father had taken her to the symphony; inspiring her and setting her dreams in motion. She spends most her life struggling to play in the symphony.

Rebekah grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. She was very close to her grandmother, who was a Godly woman, yet had an estranged relationship with her mother.

Later in life she meets Tate, the composer of Nashville’s first philharmonic. She judges him before fully getting to know him. In the end God’s lessons will humble her more than she ever thought possible.

Publisher's Description

From Bestselling Author Tamera Alexander Comes the Final Novel in the Sweeping Belmont Mansion Series

A master violinist trained in Vienna, Rebekah Carrington manages to wheedle her way into an audition with the new maestro at the Nashville Philharmonic. But women are "far too fragile and frail" for the rigors of an orchestra, and Rebekah's hopes are swiftly dashed when the conductor--determined to leave his mark on the world of classical music--bows to public opinion. To make matters worse, Adelicia Cheatham, mistress of Belmont Mansion and Rebekah's new employer, agrees with him.

Nationally acclaimed conductor Nathaniel Tate Whitcomb is Nashville's youngest orchestra leader. And despite a reluctant muse and a strange buzzing and recurring pain in his head, he must finish composing his symphony before the grand opening of the city's new symphony hall. Even more pressing, he must finish it for the one who first inspired his love of music--his dying father. As Tate's ailment worsens, he knows Rebekah can help him finish his symphony. But how can he win back her trust when he's robbed her of her dream?

As music moves us to tears yet makes our hearts soar, A Note Yet Unsung captures the splendor of classical music at a time when women's hard-won strides in cultural issues changed not only world history--but the hearts of men.

    About this book:

    A master violinist trained in Vienna, Rebekah Carrington manages to wheedle her way into an audition with the maestro at the newly-formed Nashville Philharmonic. But women are "far too fragile and frail" for the rigors of an orchestra, and Rebekah's hopes are swiftly dashed because the conductor--determined to leave his mark on the world of classical music--bows to public opinion. To make matters worse, Adelicia Acklen Cheatham, mistress of Belmont Mansion and Rebekah's new employer, agrees with him.

    Nationally acclaimed conductor Nathaniel Tate Whitcomb is Nashville's new orchestra leader. And despite a reluctant muse--and a strange buzzing and recurring pain in his head--he must finish composing his symphony before the grand opening of the city's new opera hall. But far more pressing, he must finish it for the one who first inspired his love of music--his father, who is dying. As Tate's ailment worsens, he believes Rebekah can help him finish his symphony. But how do you win back a woman's trust when you've robbed her of her dream?

    My personal Rating- Two Stars

    I was very hesitate over reviewing this novel due to the authors last book having so much sexual content. However, I did highly enjoy the previous two books in this series. Add in that the orchestra and violin music was a large factor of this novels plot, I decided to take a chance and read it.

    Before I go any further, I should say that Im very weak for anything with a violin. Its been my favorite instrument for longer than I can remember. {One reason I loved the quote on page 92, There are places in the heart where only the violin can reach., on which I very much agree.}

    Ive seen other reviewers mention feeling that this book was slow, and while I can understand that, I didnt feel that way. But, then again, I really do love classical music and orchestra details. Those who dont feel the same, though, would most likely find all those parts in this story not as interesting as another part. The author also added to the novel by linking the pieces the characters would play in the book on her website so the reader can listen along. I truly appreciate that. :)

    There were parts and things I didnt like, though. And unfortunately those scenes reflect on my ratings. We see many flashbacks and mentions of when Rebekahs stepfather tried to rape her when she was young. He later tries to corner her again. As Tate & Rebekahs relationship grows their kisses lead to a few detailed kisses. (A detailed kiss is a kiss that is described in three or more sentences.)

    I honestly would have been thrilled to give this novel a three- or four-star rating, but because of some of the content, I cannot even though I enjoyed quite a bit of this book and seeing Eleanor & Marcus and Claire & Edward again those few times.

    *BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.

    *I received this book for free from the Publisher (Bethany House) for this honest review.

    A Note Yet Unsung is a beautiful story! This third novel in the Belmont Mansion series highlights a deep love and appreciation of music, and I was fascinated by the historical details Alexander included. Alive with a richness and vibrancy that resonates through the narrative, I loved Tate and Rebekah and their emotional journey. From trials to triumphs, this pitch perfect tale captivated me from beginning to end!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book. No review was required, and all thoughts expressed are my own.

    Believe it or not I have never read a book by Tamera. I just have never gotten around to it. But now I see what all the fuss is about. She is an extremely talented author.

    Reading this book was like meeting an old friend. I easily fell into step with this story. It helped, of course, that the main character was a musician. I could very much relate to her love of music.

    Rebekah is an easy character to like. She is struggling with her role as a female musician and something is also up with her step-father. Things that are hinted at early in the book had me very concerned for Rebekah's safety and the support she would receive from her mother.

    Tate is likable too (but not to Rebekah right away). But since we know his thoughts we can understand where he is coming from with the decisions he had to make.

    I couldn't wait to see how Tamera would unveil their relationship and how these two would fall in love. It didn't disappoint.

    If you enjoy historical romance I have no doubt you would enjoy this book.

    A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher. All opinions are my own.

    Sometimes you read a book that just defies your ability to craft a review worthy of it. A Note Yet Unsung was such a book. I've read and own every single one of Tamera Alexander's books and this is her absolute best work ever! Powerful story and writing that totally blew me away. I wept through part of this book and at the end, I was crying full out loud. What a ministry to be able to put words on paper like Alexander does and touch the deepest parts of the reader's heart.

    Words flow from Tamera Alexander's pen like water flowing over a waterfall, falling effortlessly into a large pool to settle in the reader's heart, expanding outward to remain there in that heart for days, weeks and months. I'm sure that I won't forget this book and these characters ever.

    Every little part of this book is etched in my heart.

    There is ministry here. I know it ministered to me greatly in one certain way. I don't believe an author could write the way Alexander does without the help and power of the Holy Spirit. I truly don't. She has totally outdid herself with this book

    Alexander has crafted characters that just about literally leap off the pages into the reader's heart, bringing with them their emotions, their very lives. I could feel all this. I read this book in record time and it's a thick book, too. It had to end, as all books do, but I wanted to remain in those pages for a while. Just to soak up the blessings of the words on the pages. Alexander creates such vivid scenes on the pages of her books, richness dwelling in every word and scene, guaranteed to make you laugh, cry and just sigh with joy as you settle down deep into her pages. Beautifully and exquisitely written, this is a masterpiece!!! It will forever hold pride of place on my book shelves.

    I very highly recommend this book. I promise you will not be disappointed. (l

    Tamera Alexander bids us return to the Belmont Mansion and post-Civil War Nashville in A Note Yet Unsung. Denied her one passion in life because of her gender, Rebekah Carrington becomes instead a violin tutor to Adelecia Acklen Cheatham's young daughter. As Rebekah's musical talent becomes apparent, she must help a struggling young maestro in his life's dream work, while realizing hers will not become a reality.

    Alexander always presents the struggles between the races and social classes with a heart-breaking realism and candid examination. She is also careful to balance out the picture with those of privilege or supposed superiority who understand that " all men are created equal" and live out that truth.

    Whether the opulent halls of Belmont, the lavish new opera house, or the lowly house in the hills, Alexander paints all skillfully with the master brush of a true wordsmith. Much research and detail has gone into this series, and it will leave haunting memories long after the books are closed.

    I received a complimentary copy from the publisher, which did not affect my opinions nor was I compelled to leave a positive review.
