When the Music Plays

by Rebecca M. Senese

Despite retirement, Edith Williams loves pawn shops.

A chance to relive lives in old artefacts. The excitement of the hunt, of the bargain. Examining the strange and unusual. Edith relishes them all on her weekly jaunts, even with her back knees.

Until she finds one special item that makes her heart sing.

A story of the power of music and hope, join Edith in “When the Music Plays.”
