Publisher's Summary

From the author of the worldwide best seller The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, a new novel about learning how to listen and how to feel and about second chances and choosing to be brave despite the odds. Because in the end, music can save us all....

It's 1988. Frank owns a music shop. It is jam-packed with records of every speed, size and genre. Classical, jazz, punk - as long as it's vinyl, he sells it. Day after day Frank finds his customers the music they need. Then into his life walks Ilse Brauchmann.

Ilse asks Frank to teach her about music. His instinct is to turn and run. And yet he is drawn to this strangely still, mysterious woman, with her pea-green coat and her eyes as black as vinyl. But Ilse is not what she seems. And Frank has old wounds that threaten to reopen and a past he will never leave behind....

    Story
    "A delightful and compassionate story"

    A thoroughly engrossing tale of a mixed bag of everyday characters brought alive in simple but observant and telling detail. Listening made me join in with despairing or encouraging comments!

    The healing power of music is a major part of the story beautifully described. An accompanying recording would be a bonus.
