Now a major motion picture starring Julianne Moore and Ken Watanabe.
New York Times Bestseller
Ann Pratchett’s award winning, bestselling novel that balances themes of love and crisis as disparate characters learn that music is their only common language—now a major motion picture starring Julianne Moore and Ken Watanabe.
“Blissfully romantic…. A terrific, spellcasting story.” — San Francisco Chronicle
Somewhere in South America, at the home of the country's vice president, a lavish birthday party is being held in honor of the powerful businessman Mr. Hosokawa. Roxanne Coss, opera's most revered soprano, has mesmerized the international guests with her singing.
It is a perfect evening—until a band of gun-wielding terrorists takes the entire party hostage. But what begins as a panicked, life-threatening scenario slowly evolves into something quite different, a moment of great beauty, as terrorists and hostages forge unexpected bonds and people from different continents become compatriots, intimate friends, and lovers.

🔮Hidden Depths

The kind of love that offers its life so easily, so stupidly, is always the love that is not returned.
How quickly we settle for less!
