The Lost Love Song by Minnie Darke


The Lost Love Song


Published by: Penguin Random House

Publication date:  03 March 2020




This is the story of a love song . . . And like any good love song, it has two parts.

In Australia, Arie Johnson waits impatiently for classical pianist Diana Clare to return from a world tour, hopeful that after seven years together she’ll finally agree to marry him.

On her travels, Diana composes a song for Arie. It’s the perfect way to express her love, knowing they’ll spend their lives together . . . Won’t they?

Then late one night, her love song is overheard, and begins its own journey across the world.

In Scotland, Evie Greenlees is drifting. It’s been years since she left Australia with a backpack, a one-way ticket and a dream of becoming a poet. Now she spends her days making coffee and her nights serving beer. And she’s not even sure whether the guy she lives with is really her boyfriend or just a flatmate.

Then one day she hears an exquisite love song. One that will connect her to a man with a broken heart.


Why I can’t wait to read this

I recently read Minnie Drake’s first book Star-Crossed which had me totally enchanted! So when I found out her next book was coming out I was so excited and immediately added it to my TBR.

In Star-Crossed I adored that it’s was set in Australia and her characters were endearing and utterly flawed. So I’m hoping we get a similar character develop and setting in this boosk

But one of my favourite elements was the global nature of the narrative and we see the consequence of the actions. And from what I can tell this will happens in The Lost Love Song as it’s explores the song and the people who’s lives it’s effected.

Also music is books is one of my top buzz words and I’m automatically interested. I think I’ll pre-order a copy and start the long countdown to the release date!


That’s it for me. Comment down below and let me know which books release date you cannot wait for.

Until next time, happy reading!
