A mystery unfolds in this contemporary take on Eleanor Porter’s beloved literary classic tale of ten-year-old David, a luminously gifted musician. Why would David’s father, a virtuoso violinist, have raised his prodigy son in seclusion on a mountaintop? Long-hidden secrets unravel when the father dies en route to introduce his guileless son to the people of valley below.
Radiantly naïve, David enters a small town orphaned and alone, knowing only his first name and nothing of his heritage. All David knows is what his father has taught him–only what is beautiful and good, and nothing of the evils of the world he is about to encounter.
