Overview -
USA TODAY BESTSELLER

In 1962, in the Soviet Union, eight-year-old Katya is bequeathed what will become the love of her life: a Bl thner piano, on which she discovers an enrichening passion for music. Yet after she marries, her husband insists the family emigrate to America--and loses her piano in the process.

In 2012, in Bakersfield, California, twenty-six-year-old Clara Lundy is burdened by the last gift her father gave her before he and her mother died in a terrible house fire: a Bl thner upright she has never learned to play. Now a talented and independent auto mechanic, Clara's career is put on hold when she breaks her hand trying to move the piano, and in sudden frustration she decides to sell it. Only in discovering the identity of the buyer--and the secret history of her piano--will Clara be set free to live the life of her choosing.
