Publisher's Summary

In the early days of the new millennium, pages of a worn and weathered original sonata manuscript - the gift of a Czech immigrant living out her final days in Queens - come into the hands of Meta Taverner, a young musicologist whose concert piano career was cut short by an injury. To Meta's eye, it appears to be an authentic 18th-century work; to her discerning ear, the music rendered there is commanding, hauntingly beautiful, clearly the undiscovered composition of a master. But there is no indication of who the composer might be. The gift comes with the caveat that Meta attempt to find the manuscript's true owner - a Prague friend the old woman has not heard from since the Second World War forced them apart - and to make the three-part sonata whole again. Leaving New York behind for the land of Dvorák and Kafka, Meta sets out on an unforgettable search to locate the remaining movements of the sonata and uncover a story that has influenced the course of many lives, even as it becomes clear that she isn't the only one after the music's secrets.

Original and enjoyable

Nicely structured mix of historical and contemporary fiction. A little technical in parts but Highly recommend.

Maybe a little slow, but worth the patience!

I really enjoyed this novel, even though it did seem slow at times. I also really liked the narrator, though I also felt her narrative style was a bit frustrating at times, when I wanted a bit more sense of urgency for her rather than the higher dramatic emphasis. However, all over, the book is rather wonderful!
