about the book

A Secret. A Bicycle. A Promise…

While the elusive Secret Symphony of Giovanni St. John captivated the world’s fascination, it left his daughter closed away in the Silent House – she, the one who holds the fullness of truth about the ninth symphony. Now Aria St. John is determined to not only break free of the loss that has defined her, but to honor her father through one final gift in his last days.

On the tiny Isle of Espoir, only one man can help in her quest: James Shaw, the village blacksmith… and the lost friend of her childhood.

Will they be able to overcome the tragedy that separated them before it’s too late?

Written to slip easily into the stolen moments of the busy holiday season, this enchanting novelette delves into the miracle of second chances, the gift of God’s healing redemption, and the joy of the unexpected.

  1. Evangeline

    In my younger years I used to bicycle, but no more at 80 years of age!!! 😂😂😂

  2. Perrianne Askew

    No, even though I love in a city with bike lane it is much too dangerous. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity.

  3. Rita Wray

    I don’t have a bicycle but I do walk as much as possible.

    Happy New Year everyone!

  4. Caryl Kane

    I haven’t owned a bicycle in years. I do walk to the library that isn’t far from the house. 😉

  5. Martha T.

    I have a bike,but it needs to be repaired. I often take the bus places or get a ride.

  6. Kay Garrett

    No I don’t bike – for two reasons – one we live outside the city limits with no place to ride on highway and two due to health problems I’d not get very far. We use to have bikes and loved to ride though. 🙂

  7. Carol Alscheff

    No. I don’t bike anymore. Having recently had my right knee replaced I am busy practicing my walking.

  8. Brittaney B

    OH, I loved Bespoke and I’m not usually a fan of novellas. It’s such a unique, charming and moving story.

  9. Connie Scruggs

    I live in a rural area with lots of steep hills, so I don’t walk or bike anywhere.
    My bike is a Schwinn cruiser, no gears. I love to ride it when we go to the beach, but it’s not too great around here.

  10. emilee

    I don’t ride a bike places. I would love to but it’s not practical where I live. When my kids were younger and had bikes I got one too and we would ride around are subdivision. Fun times.

  11. Kathy

    Yes, I do bicycle whenever and wherever I can. Unfortunately, last summer I broke my wrist and my cycling was limited but I’m looking forward to spring when I will begin cycling again! 🙂

  12. Vera Godley

    Growing up, I did bike and loved it. It was a very special treat to have a bicycle when I was growing up. I had quite a few scraped knees and elbows from falls but learned to ride well and went on excursions with my bicycle. My son was a semi-pro bicyclist competing in long races.

  13. Lori Smanski

    I used to bicycle all the time. Now my knees wont allow it. will be looking into what I can do about them this new year.

  14. Shamekka S

    Ive bicycled in the past and really enjoyed it. I should really get back to it.

  15. Abby Breuklander

    Nope, I’m such a klutz I usually stay in my subdivision if I decide to ride my bike.

  16. Bhriv

    Nope…work from home so I’m not in the mood to run away…yet…but if I do, maybe I’ll try a bike next time 😉

  17. Gloria

    I walk for exercise but we gave our son a bike for Christmas. He lives in a neighborhood with lots of paths and near a trail leading to the coast. (Gulf Coast)

  18. Dianna

    We live in a rural area on a busy road, so we don’t bike anywhere! However, when we go camping, we take the kids’ bikes and they love to ride. I’d enjoy getting one for myself!

  19. Vivian Furbay

    Haven’t ridden a bicycle for years and haven’t been able to walk as much as I used to.

  20. Sabrina Templin

    No i haven’t had a bicycle for a really long time. I prefer walking to biking.

  21. Dianne Casey

    I haven’t ridden a bike in years. I’d probably end up on the ground. I drive every where.

  22. Natalya Lakhno

    No bicycling for me…however, we do something ride bicycles when camping ⛺️
