Melodies of the Heart

A Novella by

A Romance of the Soul, of Melancholy Melodies and Long Faded Memories.

"Melodies of the Heart" can be described as many things. It is is a heart-breaking story of a parent's love for a child; of growing old; of helplessness; but most of all, of our inner most need to cling to memories long lost.

The Story has won many accolades from critics, has won or been short listed for a number of awards and is included in a number of collections (including a 'Year's Best'). But as the author himself puts it "the best recognition it received was from readers who wrote me or have commented on message boards that they wept uncontrollably when they finished it."

Technically, the story has been classified as a 'science fiction' (it takes place in the near future). But it is, at its heart, much more than that. Like any great story, it is a mirror into our souls.

"Melodies of the Heart" is the lead story in the forthcoming collection Captive Dreams by Michael Flynn. Release date July 2012.
