The historical adult debut novel by # 1 New York
Times bestselling author Lauren Kate, The Orphan's
Song is a sweeping love story about family and
music--and the secrets each hold--that follows the
intertwined fates of two Venetian orphans.
A song brought them together.
A secret will tear them apart.
Venice, 1736. When fate brings Violetta and Mino together on
the roof of the Hospital of the Incurables, they form a
connection that will change their lives forever. Both are
orphans at the Incurables, dreaming of escape. But when the
resident Maestro notices Violetta's voice, she is selected
for the Incurables' world famous coro, and must sign
an oath never to sing beyond its church doors.
After a declaration of love ends in heartbreak, Mino flees
the Incurables in search of his family. Known as the "city
of masks," Venice is full of secrets, and Mino is certain
one will lead to his long-lost mother. Without him, the
walls close in on Violetta and she begins a dangerous and
forbidden nightlife, hoping her voice can secure her
freedom. But neither finds what they are looking for, until
a haunting memory Violetta has suppressed since childhood
leads them to a shocking confrontation.
Vibrant with the glamour and beauty of Venice at its zenith,
The Orphan's Song takes us on a breathtaking journey
of passion, heartbreak, and betrayal before it crescendos to
an unforgettable ending, a celebration of the enduring
nature and transformative power of love.
