Christmas Eve is supposed to be a happy time, but Theresa will remember it as the night her father was murdered and his violin stolen.

A musician in her own right, Theresa is drawn into her father's world and is determined to discover the truth about his death.

Her search uncovers secrets about her father and the musician's world; secrets that lead her into dangerous circles. She isn't sure who she can trust as her investigation brings her into the complex but glamorous court of Prince Nicholas Esterhazy.

Dunlap weaves historical figures like Franz Joseph Haydn, Mozart, and others into this fictional tale with ease. Her prose sang me into eighteenth-century Vienna and into Theresa's life with a musical journey I'll never forget.

THE MUSICIAN'S DAUGHTER strikes a chord in the reader's heart and holds it to the end.
