Every note played. Lisa Genova. 2018.

Regular price $7.00

As an accomplished concert pianist, Richard’s every finger was a finely calibrated instrument, dancing the keys and bringing captivated audiences to their feet. That was eight months ago. Richard now has ALS, and his entire right arm is paralysed. The loss of his hand feels like a death, a loss of true love, a divorce - his divorce.

Even though Karina removed their framed wedding picture from the wall three years ago, she still blames Richard and their failed marriage for her unfulfilling life as a piano teacher. But when Richard becomes increasingly paralysed and is no longer able to live on his own, Karina becomes his reluctant caretaker. As Richard’s muscles, voice and breath fade, both he and Karina try to reconcile their past before it’s too late.
