Finding Viola: A Short Story

by Bo Burnette

“I could hear the music again, and somehow it seemed louder than before.”

Every day, Miss Erikson hears mysterious music coming from behind a locked door at the Lang School of Fine Arts. When the strict Mrs. Borg demands she leave the door alone, Miss Erikson’s curiosity propels her to uncover the secrets of the ever-closed door. As she pursues the source of the inexplicable music, she must finally face the grief of the past she has long tried to ignore.

(A 3,000 word short story about mystery, grief, and the power of music from the author of Denver and the Doolittle Raid and The Lighthouse Thief.)
