This is a mesmerizing story of chance, friendship and courage of three children who have no connection with each other but are brought together as a consequence of a chance encounter on the street and a green violin. But soon they are swept away in an epic and utterly compelling adventure.

Synopsis

The Clockwork Three by Matthew Kirby

When Giuseppe finds a green violin washed up in New York docks, somehow he knows it will change his life. But how? The very same day, Hannah, a maid at a local hotel, gets a strange new mistress. Why are Madame X and her mysterious Russian minder living in a hotel? What are they hiding from? Across the square, Frederick, a clockmaker's apprentice, hides his dark terrors, and an amazing gift. There is nothing to link these three children, except the green violin and a chance encounter on the street. But soon they are swept away in an epic adventure. This is a mesmerizing story of chance, friendship, and courage.

About the Author

Matthew J. Kirby has been making up stories since he was quite small. He was less small when he decided that he wanted to be a writer, and quite a bit larger when he finally become one. His father was a doctor in the Navy, so his family moved frequently. Matthew went to three different elementary schools and three different high schools, and he has lived in the American states of Utah, Rhode Island, Maryland, California, and Hawaii, which means that while growing up he met many people and had many wonderful experiences.

Matthew currently lives in Utah with his wife, where he still works with children and continues to write stories for them. You can visit him at his website.
