Novel Playlist: Through Summer’s Light

Not all my novels will have inspirational playlists, but this one does. I love these songs and they fit the main characters Florentia and Silas well—both their worldviews, and their journeys.

Character Songs:

Florentia is all ‘Happy love!’, ‘I’ll support you!’ vibes, and Silas is all passion, old pain, and conflict.

  • Dandelions. Ruth B. – Florentia
  • Lover, Don’t Leave. Citizen Shade. – Silas
    • This song is SO Silas. Including the gorgeous range of lead singer Will Howard’s vocals. Yum. Note, the novel is a clean romance, and Florentia doesn’t spend any time in Silas’s bed during the course of the story, lol. …But the sentiments, they fit him very well.
  • Moments to Memories. Adeline Hill. – Florentia
  • Sketches of Summer. Roo Panes. – Silas
  • Run to You. Lea Michele. – Florentia
  • Hold Your Head Up High. Darlingside. – Silas
  • Love Has No Limits. Fleurie. – Florentia
  • Shine a Light. KAINA. – Florentia
  • UNINVITED. Brian Justin Crum. – Silas
  • Just Maybe. Mandy Moore. – Florentia

Western Violin Music:

Silas plays the violin for Florentia and her family.

  • Vivaldi: The Four Seasons, Violin Concerto in G Minor, Op. 8 No. 2, RV 315 “Summer”: Ill. Presto. Antonio Vivaldi, Kyung Wha Chung. – Silas plays a solo violin version of this
  • Jerry Holland’s Reels. Ross Kennedy, Archie McAllister. – A fun reel like he would play

Indian Violin Music:

Silas is from India. These are a taste of what Silas might play for appreciative audiences with the tambura accompanying.

  • Raga Nagaswarali. Ambi Subramaniam.
  • Balamurali Tillana. Ambi Subramaniam.
  • Raga Begada. Ambi Subramaniam.
