Publisher's Summary

In 1970, Lenny can no longer deny that his wife is undergoing a profound change. Despite her relatively young age, her mind succumbs to forgetfulness. Now, he goes as far back as the moment he met Natasha, when he was a soldier and she a star, brilliant yet illusive. Natasha was a riddle to him then, and to this day, with all the changes she has gone through, she still is.
Digging into the past, mining its moments, trying to piece them together this way and that, dusting off each memory of Natasha, of how we were, the highs and lows of the music of us, to find out where the problem may have started?
To their son, Ben, that may seem like an exercise in futility. For Lenny, it is a necessary process of discovery, one that is as tormenting as it is delightful. He often wonders: can we ever understand, truly understand each other - soldier and musician, man and woman, one heart and another? Will we ever again dance together to the same beat? Is there a point where we may still touch?

True Love Renewed Every Day

What did you love best about The Music of Us?

This story is a wonderful story about finding true love that lasts forever. Nothing can change the course of unconditional love--not even mental illness. Marriage vows are a pledge that are meant to last forever and this story is such a glorious example of how love can last through "sickness."

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lenny is the main male character. The story is told from his point of view. He is an honest and loving guy who lives his entire life doing his very best to be a loving son, friend and husband. He is loyal and faithful and is a really nice guy.

What about Don Warrick’s performance did you like?

Don Warrick's performance was inspiring. As the moods of the story change, Don manages to convey each scene with gripping intensity. The reader is drawn into the story and becomes engrossed in what is going to happen next.

If you could take any character from The Music of Us out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I would like to meet Natasha and get to know more about her life. She has deep emotions and it would be interesting to know her innermost thoughts.

Any additional comments?

I won this audiobook in a "Mother's Day Event" on Facebook in which several authors shared audio samples of their books. It was a wonderful opportunity to receive a book in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank Uvi for this gift to hear this beautiful and touching story of true love through the years.
