When renowned opera singer Marta Hendriks sees her dead husband in a Paris street, she fears she's losing her mind -- or did she actually see him?

Marta Hendriks is onstage at the Metropolitan Opera in New York when she learns of her beloved husband's death in a house fire. Overcome, she collapses and has to be carried off the stage.

Fast-forward two years and countless therapy sessions, and Marta is ready to resume her career. In a stroke of luck, she's hired at the last moment to sing Violetta for the Paris Opera. She manages to keep her emotions under tight control and triumphs in the opening-night performance. During one of her rare days off, relaxing for the first time since her husband's accident, something threatens her newfound peace. When Marta is caught in a sudden downpour, she dashes for the shelter of a subway station and spots someone doing the same. It is her husband. Marta fears she's losing her mind - or did she actually see him? Back home in Toronto, she struggles with her need for the truth at the precipice of madness.

Another great book by this author. Those who haven't read should consider reading. Note to readers who don't know there's a follow up on this story called "Roses for a Diva"
