At nine years old, Frankie Presto is sent to America in the bottom of a boat. His only possession is an old guitar and six precious strings.

But Frankie's talent is unique, and his amazing journey weaves him through the musical landscape of the twentieth century, from classical to jazz to rock and roll, with his stunning talent affecting numerous stars along the way, including Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Carole King and even KISS.

Frankie becomes a pop star himself. He makes records. He is adored. But his gift is also his burden, as he realises, through his music, he can actually affect people's futures -- with one string turning blue whenever a life is altered.

At the height of his popularity, Frankie Presto vanishes. His legend grows. Only decades later does he reappear, to change one last life . . .

“A very different sort of read”

I am a huge Mitch Albom fan; my favourite book of all time is Five People You Meet in Heaven and I have read several of his other titles. I was absolutely thrilled when I heard he had a new novel and right away got... More

“A must read for a musician”

This book spoke to me, in a way that no other book ever has. When some of the chapters are written from the point of view of Music itself, Music becomes the most thought provoking narrator. A tale of Frankie Presto,... More
