Episode 99- A Chat with Romance Author, Ashley Rescot

Author of the Strings of Sisterhood series, Ashley Rescot shares her personal background, her passion for music, and the romance that awaits each sister.

You'll learn about Rescot's short stories, her recent release, A Change in Tune, her book club, and so much more. I seriously had a blast chatting about music, literature, favorite authors, and especially, her new story.

This Romance Is Full of Music That Makes Hearts Sing

Ashley Rescot, author of quite a few short stories in her fictional musical world as well as her recent release, A Change in Tune, began her own musical career back before she turned three!  As one of five sisters, Ashley was inspired by classic literature such as Little Women, Pride & Prejudice, and Little House on the Prairie.

One of the things we talked about was personal preference in music and that led me to a confession about my own ignorance regarding one composer I thought I didn't like.  That song... THIS is the one:

Yeah... my favorite song... sung to something written by "that guy I can't stand."  Shows what I know.

You can learn more about Ashley Rescot, her books, her FABULOUS book club, and more on her WEBSITE.

A Change in Tune by Ashley Rescot

Violinist Victoria Pearson dreams of attending Johann Conservatory of Music in New York City for graduate school. As the oldest of five sisters, she hopes to escape her Midwestern college town and hectic family situation to fulfill her passion in life—music. But when she decides to participate in Belton University's Concerto competition to bolster her chances of acceptance, Victoria finds herself competing against her sister Adrienne and lifelong cellist friend Jerry Chang.

This sets in motion a rivalry that questions the roles of sisterhood, friendship, and maybe love.

Victoria wants to maintain the rigors required of a professional classical musician without losing her family and friends, not to mention her sanity, in the process. The demands of her large family might hinder her ability to achieve her dreams. What sacrifices will she make to reach her goals, and are they worth the cost?

A new, twenty-first-century generation of little women takes the stage in A Change in Tune.
