Author: Ray Ballantyne
Release Date: August 2014
Formats: Paperback, e-book
Sixty years have passed, and the people of Hamelin have yet
to heal from the loss of their children to the Pied Piper. Pieter has
grown up in a town without joy, without hope, without music. Yet his
heart is full of songs and tunes he cannot express.
He often escapes to the side of Koppelberg Mountain, the
very spot where the children disappeared, and there he can hear what
he thinks no one else can—the notes of the Piper’s song still floating
on the air. But there is another who hears: Old Simon, who as a boy,
was left behind.
Pieter’s musical gift creates a connection with the piper of
legend, but will Pieter be able to control the magic of his music or
will it control him, as it did the Pied Piper?
