Product description

Product Description

"Rachel McMillan has proven her ability to create the perfect harmony of story, romance, and characters in her beautiful novella, Rose in Three Quarter Time. Using rich and varied descriptions, she blends friendship, music, pain, discovery, trust, and love into the seamless tempo of a sweet, passionate, and endearing love story between two people who fit into each other’s wounds and hopes so well. They truly are the perfect pair. McMillan uses the magnificent setting of Vienna and the powerful platform of music to delve deep into how two genuinely kind people become better through loving the other. Rose is a vibrant aria in Oliver’s life, awakening his world to something even more beautiful than the music he conducts. Love. The song every heart longs to hear, live, and believe in. Bravo, Ms. McMillan. Bravo."
Pepper Basham, "When You Look at Me"

"There are love stories and then there are legendary love stories, and this is the latter. Rose and Oliver show us how real love, when surrendered to, carries us to our true selves. In a setting so alive it vibrates as beautifully as the music in this novel, we follow these two wounded and beautiful souls through Vienna. McMillan dares to ask the big question — what do we do with our life when we believe our purpose has been stolen from us? And then she responds by having her characters live into the answer. As McMillan says in Rose in Three Quarter Time, “A true musician never gives 98 percent,” And neither does this author. This is one truly resplendent book.”-- Patti Callahan Henry, NYT Bestselling author

"Rose in Three Quarter Time just may be one of the most romantic stories I’ve ever read. How could it help but be, with the delicious combination of a marriage of convenience with the author’s obvious love for music and Vienna entwined in a glorious fictional symphony?" --The Silver Petticoat Review

Some people marry for love; others marry for music...

Rose McNeil is rising the ranks at the Mozarteum in Salzburg as a violinist to watch. Her musical Nova Scotian heritage has loaned an unparalleled technique to her interpretation of some of the most beautiful compositions in the world. The opportunity of a first chair assignment to the Rainer Quartet under the baton of Oliver Thorne is a dream come true--- until her visa expires and the threat of leaving Vienna looms. As much as she grieves the prospect of leaving Vienna and the quartet, it is Oliver—with his dry sense of humour and unexpected charm- she will miss most.

British ex-pat Oliver Thorne’s recent appointment as conductor to the Rainer Quartet make him the youngest in the role during its prestigious history. But it wasn’t the path he wanted. A tragic accident years ago forbade him from ever playing his beloved cello again. Now he spends his life teaching and guest conducting for premiere orchestras at the Musikverein. When he first hears Rose McNeil play, all the dreams he left by the wayside are reborn with her unexpected talent. When Rose learns she may have to leave Vienna, Oliver has to come up with a solution. Losing his first violinist is unfortunate, losing her is unimaginable.

So he comes up with a crazy idea: A marriage on paper only. She’ll take his name and his citizenship. They’ll split rent money and coin toss to decide who takes the bed or the the futon every night. They’ll keep their secret from the orchestra. She’ll play and he’ll conduct and, most importantly...she’ll stay.

Unbeknownst to each other, Rose is in love with Oliver and Oliver is in love with Rose. They might even find a happy ending, if only their pesky marriage doesn’t get in the way.
