Theme Thursday - Sound/Music

This is a meme hosted by Kavyen @ Reading Between Pages  “Theme Thursdays” will be open from one Thursday to the next and anyone can post it. The rules are simple:

* A theme will be posted each week (on Thursdays)
* Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
* Post it and don’t forget to mention the author and the title of the book
* It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
* Since we may take a few days to finish a book, this event is open for one whole week

This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

This weeks theme is
 -  Sound/Music

I've just finished this book on my Kindle -  a 99c bargain which proved to be a very beautiful and moving story which I recommend.

" But before I reached the house, the winds returned carrying with them beautiful violin music - music that suggested mystery and evoked the voroszhka and the magic of her camp. The music tempted me to follow. Tato and Mama would expect me to linger outside. 'Our Nadya lives in dreams,' they always said. So I could probably steal away unnoticed for a few moments. I turned away from the house and toward the wind, urged on by the music."
