Aria's life is full of secrets--secrets about her mother's death, her father's cruelty, and her

heart, and gives her the courage to defy her father. But when tragedy strikes and Thomas

beautiful. Porcelain Keys is a captivating love story that will resonate long after the last

My review:

I want to be honest, that when I decided to go for Porcelain Keys, I did not know what to expect. Sarah Beard is a new author for me, but the book blurb sounded promising. Promising is an understatement. I loved Porcelain Keys!

It was a refreshing book about friendship, loss, tragedy, hope, letting go and never giving up on your dreams. It was well written and an inspiring page turner.

Aria lost her mother and her father does everything to erase the memory of Aria's mom. Aria very passionate about music and she is secretly exercising her passion and when her father has one of his aggressive fits, she escapes to the tree-house where she meets Thomas. Thomas is her rock who encourages her and keeps Aria sane. Their relationship develops and then another tragedy happens. Aria turns her heartbreak into a music and pursues her dream to become a student at Julliard.

Porcelain Keys is a wonderful book! It gives you a lot of thought and emotions from anger and heartbreak to love and hope. It also keeps some surprising secrets which will reveal during the reading. The characters are captivating and well developed.

Loved it!
