Summary

Adam, in his early 20s, has to balance the need to develop his career as a pro musician with the demands of home life - he runs a vineyard in France - and partner Sylvain. The arrival in his life of Josh - they meet on a concert tour - adds extra pressure. Though Sylvain, left at home to manage the vineyard, has his own ideas for self-advancement.

This third and final volume in the Adam trilogy stands alone also: A self-contained story of life, partnership, and, inevitably, music.

Love this trilogy

I'm no reviewer but I wish to say that I was totally gripped from start to finish with Anthony's telling of Adam's journey through life.
There were moments when I almost lived the lives of the characters. I rejoiced, I cried,I wanted it never to end.Needless to say,I have become a fan of his story telling and his piano!
Dear Anthony, I share the emotion of your dedications, your astute observation of character,emotion and place.
Thank you so much.Please continue writing as you are able and reading the results for our pleasure.

Wonderful end to a great trilogy

The three books of this trilogy have made my Coronavirus lockdown so much more bearable and a great escape from my reality into that of the characters. The exploration of the young men’s sexuality with all the excitement, angst and sex that that involves is a main theme but the sex is not gratuitous or even soft porn; more an inherent part of the books. As is the well informed intertwined struggle of young classical musicians with accurate referencing to classical works which I then listened to between chapters. Also the description of the French countryside, rural culture & wine growing was excellent. A well researched, well written and well read trilogy. I am looking forward to hearing more of this author’s books on Audible.

Dissappointing follow up

An unfortunate end to the Adam trilogy which I found rather depressing. Shame that Adam's concert career withered
