Willa Forsythe is both a violin prodigy and top-notch thief, which makes her the perfect choice for a crucial task at the outset of World War I--to steal a cypher from a famous violinist currently in Wales.

Lukas De Wilde has enjoyed the life of fame he's won--until now, when being recognized nearly gets him killed. Everyone wants the key to his father's work as a cryptologist. And Lukas fears that his mother and sister, who have vanished in the wake of the German invasion of Belgium, will pay the price. The only light he finds is meeting the intriguing Willa Forsythe.

But danger presses in from every side, and Willa knows what Lukas doesn't--that she must betray him and find that cypher, or her own family will pay the price as surely as his has.

I absolutely loved this book!
I loved how for this book we focused on Willa, who we met in the previous book. How we got to find out how she ended up the way she is. How she was abandoned at a really young age and that made her very reserved and resentful.
It was interesting reading about how even though she didn’t really believe that God existed she still kind of saw Him as the type of father that is never around, like her biological father.
I also really loved Lukas. I loved how he would go back and forth between speaking English and French. I really enjoyed reading about how he started to change from a playboy to someone who actually cared about someone else.
The chemistry and banter between Lukas and Willa was so much fun to read. I really loved how their relationship progressed despite the bumps along the way that they experienced.
I also really loved getting to know more about Barclay and I’m really excited to read the next book in the series that focuses on him.

This is one of the best-written novels I've ever read! The plot thickened as the story progressed and kept me interested the whole way through the book right to the ending. I was never completely certain what the final outcome would be. I loved how Roseanna wove romance with intrigue and music and how she reunited the hero with his family, even getting the heroine involved in the rescue. Brilliant! The character development was excellent too! It showed how people can really change for the better in the right circumstances and how others can influence us for better or worse.

This second installment in Roseanna White’s Shadow’s Over England series is a sweet melody with a little intrigue thrown in for good measure. It’s the start of World War l and England is looking for any advantage over Germany that they can find. Willa Forsythe is a first-rate thief. She can also play the violin. That’s why she is chosen to steal a cypher key from the famous violinist, Lukas De Wilde. Willa’s journey is a hard one, shaped by her past. She eventually learns to trust in not only other people but in God. I really enjoyed the musical aspect of this story. I was hoping for more from some of the secondary characters. Hopefully we see more of them in the next book. So, A Song Unheard did not disappoint. It was everything you would expect from Roseanna White. I can’t wait for the next one!

I received this book from Bethany House publisher’s in exchange for my honest review.

I do believe I enjoyed “A Song Unheard” better than Book 1 in the series, “A Name Unknown”! Willa is an intriguing heroine in whom I saw much of myself. She returns stares with a hint (or more) of challenge, and I couldn’t help but be amused by her skepticism of Lukas’ expressions of amour (which she should rightly have been, regardless of how genuine he and the reader know them to be). Willa gives as good as she gets.

In turn, Lukas is entirely endearing, and not just because his arm gives him so much grief. His love of music and family, and ongoing quest to locate his mother and sister back on the Continent, are admirable.

The book is a good length, clocking in close to 3 hours even for me, a self-professed speed reader, and allows sufficient time for their story (and stories) to play out. Now, if only Book 3 were available...
