The award-winning Music & Silence is one of Tremain's most popular works. Set in the court of Christian IV of Denmark during the 17th century, it is a beautiful and enduring tale of love, intrigue and betrayal. Part history, part imagination, Music & Silence lyrically evokes the rich tapestry of court life

The obsessions and secret woes of a host of memorable characters are brilliantly realised by Tremain, who deftly weaves together the numerous sub-plots. We encounter a king, tormented by his quest for perfection; the raucous and spoilt Kirsten, raging against the constraints of her queenly situation; and the silently grieving Emilia.

    " One of my all-time top books. It kept me engrossed on a long international flight - I wanted the book to go on forever. The psychological complexity of characters made me mean to reread it to savour and digest. "

    " Pure magic! Meaty in style and characterization! The characters are so alive and real with the villains being so villainous, i didn't wish it to end! You wont regret it ! "

    " A complex story set at the 17th-century Danish court. About 6 different story lines witness to the varieties of ways to love and imagine worlds outside the limitations of our existing worlds (and the relationship between them). "
