A picture book about the young musician, Bellini, and the tragic love story behind his ascension to fame and glory. Bellini is a young music student in Naples. He gives singing lessons to the beautiful Maddelena and they form a strong bond. A bond similar to a pair of love birds. When Maddelena's family forbid them to marry, they are forced to only write to each of their love and trust. When Bellini leaves Naples to compose his famous operas, their love is put to the ultimate test.
