Abigail's Song by Alina Rubin

Hearts and Harmony Book 1

When your world is out of tune, can music heal you?

Cast out from her home after her mother’s death, orphan Abigail Jones wanders around her English town on Christmas Eve of 1809. Desperately trying to suppress her cough—the same that killed her mother—Abigail begs for coins on the freezing cold streets. With the help of the medical student, Oli Higgins, she recovers and avoids being sent to the cruel orphanage. Oli then reveals his secret: he is hiding his Jewish identity and his birth name, David Fridman, to pursue his chosen profession. He brings her into his devout, loving Jewish home. Over time, she embraces her found family and discovers her talent for music.

When she grows up, Abigail is caught between two worlds; not Christian enough for the Gentiles, but as a non-Jew, she has no hope of marrying David, the man she dreams of. While she is recovering from a deadly illness, David’s brother Moishe inspires her with music to rise from her sickbed and to begin her journey of converting to Judaism.

Her attempt to capture David’s heart fails when his true love appears in town. Heartbroken, Abigail hastily accepts another man’s marriage proposal and plans a double wedding with David’s bride. On the big day, guilt and misery drive her to take drastic actions.

Can the powers of faith, family, and music help her survive and find her purpose?
