"We are not so lost after all."
“Song for a Lost Kingdom, reminiscent of the Outlander series, is a captivating tale of passion and self-discovery.
Set amid the castles of 18th-century Scotland and the music halls of present day, this story will appeal to fans of historical fiction, time travel, and romance, as well as musicians who understand the ability of music to alter one's very state of mind.
Well-researched and carefully-crafted, the novel is evocative with an abundance of historical and sensory detail. With several unexpected twists in the plot, Moretti effortlessly ties together two women who lived centuries apart. Readers will be reminded that we are not so lost, after all -- and our connection to the past may be found in the most surprising of places.“

“A great read! This is the first time that I have read books by this author, Steve Moretti, but it won't be the last. I just can't wait to read the next book!
This is a Time Travel story, sort of, LOL. I'm not going into how it is done, as this would ruin the surprise but, I can honestly say that this is a first for me.
The characters are well thought out and the story itself is riveting. I had a hard time putting it down! Set in Canada and Scotland, this story contains Romance, Intrigue, History, Suspense and much more.
There are a lot of historical references and I really loved that.
About the only thing I didn't like was the cliffhanger so, if you prefer to wait for the completion of the set, all well and good.
Steve better get his skates on and put out the next book. Waiting.......
