"As sweet and flavorful as Dutch apple pie, Robert Elmer's The Duet is a welcome treat. I am so thrilled that Robert is now writing for adults as well as children-and I appreciate this loving look into a music teacher's life and heart." -Angela Hunt, author of The Debt "Robert Elmer's The Duet is a charming love story in which backgrounds and traditions clash. If you love music, nostalgia, or a rural setting, then this heartwarming novel is for you." -Randy Alcorn, author of Safely Home and Deadline "The Duet is an absolute delight! How quickly the characters of Van Dalen became like my old and dearest friends. I can still hear the melody of their story playing in my heart." -Robin Lee Hatcher, best-selling author of Legacy Lane and Beyond the Shadows "It's never too late for love and Robert Elmer's first delve into adult fiction conveys that comforting truth with a homespun wit and a unique voice. The Duet is peopled with characters of many stripes, many dimensions, yet they all intersect in the place where grace abounds. Wonderful." -Lisa Samson, best-selling author of The Church Ladies and The Living End. "The Duet is a delightfully romantic story with real meat on its bones. If I wasn't laughing out loud, I was smiling, and if I wasn't smiling, I was crying. Robert Elmer writes with a charming voice. Truly one of the best novels I've read in years." -Deborah Raney, author of A Nest of Sparrows and Beneath a Southern Sky "The Duet is a charming, witty example of masterful storytelling. Chuckles and hankies--you'll need them both in this ' very goot book'!" -Lori Copeland, author of the Morning Shade series, A Case of Bad Taste and A Case of Crooked Letters
