His music changes lives...at a high cost
Frankie Presto is born in a burning church and raised by a music teacher in a Spanish town. At nine years old, he is sent to America in the bottom of a boat. His only possession is an old guitar with six precious blue strings. His journey weaves him through the musical landscape of the 1940s-60s, as his playing and singing influence such stars as Duke Ellington, Hank Williams and Elvis Presley-until he becomes a pop star himself.
But his gift is also his burden, as he realizes how, through music, he can affect people's lives. At the height of his popularity, tortured by his biggest mistake, he vanishes, even as his legend grows.
Mitch Alborn creates a magical world in this remarkable novel about the power of talent to change lives.
