Waiting on Wednesday: The Architect of Song

The Architect of Song by A.G. Howard
Publication Date: August 15th, 2016

A lady imprisoned by deafness, an architect imprisoned by his past, and a ghost imprisoned within the petals of a flower - intertwine in this love story that transcends life and death.

For most of her life, nineteen-year-old Juliet Emerline has subsisted – isolated by deafness – making hats in the solitude of her home. Now, she’s at risk to lose her sanctuary to Lord Nicolas Thornton, a twenty-seven-year-old mysterious and eccentric architect with designs on her humble estate. When she secretly witnesses him raging beside a grave, Juliet investigates, finding the name “Hawk” on the headstone and an unusual flower at the base. The moment Juliet touches the petals, a young English nobleman appears in ghostly form, singing a song only her deaf ears can hear. The ghost remembers nothing of his identity or death, other than the one name that haunts his afterlife: Thornton.

To avenge her ghostly companion and save her estate, Juliet pushes aside her fear of society and travels to Lord Thornton’s secluded holiday resort, posing as a hat maker in one of his boutiques. There, she finds herself questioning who to trust: the architect of flesh and bones who can relate to her through romantic gestures, heartfelt notes, and sensual touches … or the specter who serenades her with beautiful songs and ardent words, touching her mind and soul like no other man ever can. As sinister truths behind Lord Thornton’s interest in her estate and his tie to Hawk come to light, Juliet is lured into a web of secrets. But it’s too late for escape, and the tragic love taking seed in her heart will alter her silent world forever.

This is all that came to mind when I read the synopsis.


How amazing does this book sound? I mean really. I'm ashamed to admit I haven't read anything by A.G. Howard yet but I am really looking forward to her book, Roseblood

I'm also a sucker for historical fiction and the paranormal, so I am really excited for this series, especially since it is New Adult! 

So let's review: New Adult, Historical Fiction, ghosts, and THAT COVER! I don't want this, I NEED it! 

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking The Spine.
