Summary, etc.: "Jeffrey Stepakoff's The Melody of Secrets is an epic love story set against the 1960s U.S. space program, where deeply-buried secrets could threaten not just a marriage, but a country. Maria was barely eighteen when WWII was coming to its explosive end. A brilliant violinist, she tries to comfort herself with the Sibelius Concerto as American bombs rain down. James Cooper wasn't much older. A roguish fighter pilot stationed in London, he was shot down in a daring night raid and seeks shelter in Maria's cottage. Fifteen years later, in Huntsville, Alabama, Maria is married to a German rocket scientist who works for the burgeoning US Space Program. Her life in the south is at peace, purposefully distanced from her past. Everything is as it should be --until Robert Cooper walks back into it. Pulled from a desert airfield where he was testing planes no sane Air Force pilot would touch, and drinking a bit too much, Cooper is offered the chance to work for the government, and move himself to the front of the line for the astronaut program. He soon realizes that his job is not only to report on the rocket engines, but also on the scientists developing them. Then Cooper learns secrets that could shatter Maria's world.."--
