Every Note Played
An accomplished concert pianist, Richard received standing ovations from audiences all over the world. Richard now has ALS, and his entire right arm is paralyzed. He knows his left arm will go next. His ex-wife, Karina, stuck in an unfulfilling life as a piano teacher, blames Richard and their failed marriage for all of her problems. When Richard is no longer able to live on his own, Karina becomes his reluctant caregiver. As Richard's muscles, voice, and breath fade, both he and Karina try to reconcile their past before it's too late. A poignant and powerful novel from Genova (Inside the O'Briens, 2015).
