This heartbreaking story will stay with you long after you’ve read the last page. The novel is about an accomplished pianist who plays in all the major concert halls and is at the pinnacle of his career when he receives a diagnosis of ALS. The story describes in great detail the progression of this disease and the demise of his career and personal life. The author is also a neuroscientist, so she goes into great detail while creating an interesting and engaging story. It is an emotional read and one that I highly recommend.
