Hello. I read a book from the library back in 1990. I want to get that book again and read it. It was a great book IMO since it was very similar to the Phantom of the Opera.

I remember it had the cover of a woman looking out a window in the moonlight. It has a man who is the phantom who is disfigured and lives underground(?) and has his faithful servant do all his shopping and daytime stuff. He never left his home that I can remember. I do believe that the girl is involved b/c she is a violin player and good at it? Or is going to take lessons from him? But they fall in love and I'd like to re-read this book.

Anyone remember such a book? Help?

Yeah it was a pretty good book. I just always wish I could remember the name of it. With all the books out there, it's going to be hard to find it. Plus I don't know how to even go hunt for it.

The book is Night Magic by Charlotte Vale Allen.

I've requested it and can NOT wait to get this book again.

You might be interested in another book based on the PHANTOM OF THE OPERA which I enjoyed a few years ago. It was called PHANTOM by Susan Kay.

PHANTOM by Susan Kay

 

Agreed, bookaholic, that is an amazing book!  I've lent out the book to a few fans of the original book and Broadway musical, and they also agreed that it's well-written and very heart-wrenching.  It's a pity she didn't write much (anything?) afterwards.

I think I tried to find the Susan book and couldn't find it on here. I'll keep an eye out for it. It MIGHT be in my TBR list. :)

I can NOT wait for my phantom book to get here. It will be nice to re-visit these pages.
