Product description

A truly magical tale of war, struggle, curses, beautiful music…. and three happy endings! Lost in a forbidden forest, Otto meets three mysterious sisters who tug him into a puzzling quest involving a prophecy, a promise and a harmonica. Decades later, three kids in Germany and the USA are pulled in when the harmonica lands in their lives. There’s Friedrich in Germany, Mike in Pennsylvania and Ivy in California. All of them face their own challenges – and their own part in the quest. Rescuing a father, protecting a brother, holding a family together… Can the thread of destiny weave these solo stories into a magnificent orchestral whole?

  • A masterful story of time, family, destiny and music
  • A Newbery Honor book and New York Times bestseller
  • Epic backdrops of World War II and the Great Depression
  • Winner of the Kirkus Prize for young readers’ literature

“Each individual story is engaging, but together they harmonize to create a thrilling whole.” Publishers Weekly

“Daring and beautiful.” Linda Sue Park
