Pre-order A Secret Never to be Told

Boyo by Lynn John

Gioacchino Rossini was the rock opera star of his day – crowds flocked to his operas; his tunes were sung on the streets; he was paid vast sums of money, in Milan, Naples, Paris, London; women scrambled to get into his bed; and he married the breath-takingly beautiful, tempestuous, Spanish opera diva, Isabella Colbran.

Then in 1829, after nineteen years of furious output, Gioacchino Rossini suddenly stopped composing operas.

He lived for another 39 years, but did not compose another opera. 

Not one.

A secret never to be told. 
Until now.

“This gripping novel is based on real people, real events and true stories, in the lives of two of the greatest composers the world has ever known.”
