“Best Bisexual Fiction” Rainbow Book Awards 2015
Martin Zoric, a maestro and composer in Croatia, had vivid dreams of fatherhood, of a small hand pressed to his, of pink dresses and girlish laughter. Then his wife had a stillbirth, and his world fell apart. He listened to the unwanted apologies, stood by his wife as was expected, and kept his façade strong and firm for the entire world to see.
But, he has never found the strength let go and grieve over the loss of his stillborn daughter. Now, he can’t feel his music and is obviously falling apart.
When renowned pianist Ren Wakahisa landed in Croatia for a summer concert series, he was hoping to escape the cultural pressures put upon him by his Japanese family. They wanted him to conform – to forsake love for familial duties. But Ren has other ideas about love and family obligation.
Over the course of the summer, Ren must decide whether he will yield to his family’s wishes or has the courage to be the man he wants to be.
Summer Symphony is a story of love and loss – a man’s perspective of what it is to lose a child. It is the story of how two men with exceptional talent and passion find answers in music and what they learn about strength, grace, and the endurance of love.
