Summary
"The fading Lila Du Cann returns to Burnhead to bury her father and remembers the summer of 1960 when, aged fifteen, she was drawn away from the patchy sunshine of the town's summer season and deep into Uncle George's preposterous production of Puccini's Turandot - the opera of the moon, of passion, sacrifice and death - when she first sang and first fell in love." -- Cover
Summary
During the summer of 1960, fifteen-year-old Lila's life is about to change forever as she escapes the confines of school, her parents' loveless marriage, and her mother's hysterics to spend the summer with her uncle George, a London music teacher preparing to stage an amateur production of a Puccini opera in the town of Burnhead, on the west coast of Scotland.
