Sonata Summer

Ann Ulrich Miller


Take one talented piano major who is swept off her toes when she arrives in Aspen for the Music Festival... and combine her with the "perfect man" -- wilderness ranger Parker Sherwin of the Aspen Ranger District. The result: a whirlwind romance with a September wedding in the works.

Some things are too good to be true. One week before the big day, Rhea Sinclair's dreams are shattered when a forest fire claims Parker's life. Unable to leave the one place she'd found happiness, Rhea remains in Aspen to struggle through the winter as a local.

Ann Ulrich Miller reveals in this novel the heart-rending emotions of a young woman forced to cope with grief over losing her soul mate. Enrolled for her second year at the Aspen Music School, Rhea meets Trey Michaels, an outfitter, and the jolt he evokes is disturbing. How can she possibly remain faithful to Parker, whose spirit jogs at her side during her daily runs along the Rio Grande Trail?

Worse -- how can she hide the fact from Parker that she is attracted to a man who is too rough around the edges? Parker, who loved classical music, was suited to her. Trey is at the other end of the spectrum.

And she doesn't dare tell anyone that she shares conversations with her unseen lover.

Ann Ulrich Miller lived several years in Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado. Having been born and reared in the Midwest, the move to Colorado had a significant impact on her life. She worked for The Aspen Times and Snowmass Sun, and in 1984 left with her Forest Service husband and their two young sons to live in Corvallis, Oregon. When they returned to Colorado in June 1985, their third son was born that November. From her earliest years music was important in her life. She started piano lessons at the age of 4 and continued her musical studies throughout high school, which included French horn in band and orchestra. She currently resides in western Colorado.

Some testimonials:

"Sonata Summer is a fast-paced read. I loved the music aspect. Once you begin, you have to finish." -- Judith Horky, author of EarthShift and Soul Shift: 2012 and Beyond

"This novel shows a ton of talent that I don't have even an ounce of -- Ann is a story teller. She builds on her own knowledge and experiences to develop characters and weave them into an imaginative plot. As I read, I recognized her in the importance of music in her life, her familiarity with and love of the country around Aspen, enjoyment of hiking, the connection with the Forest Service, and even Lynx (her cat Jessica?). Running also was obviously part of her life. I thoroughly enjoyed the book to the final page." -- Suzanne Ward, author of Amusing to Profound, My Conversations with Animals and the Matthew Books
