A few years ago I read a book about the journey of a Grand Piano from NYC to Montana. The writer called the piano "Marlene" and there was difficulty getting the piano to sound as beautiful in its new home after the move as it did when the writer first played her. The story ends well, just so you don't worry.

Does anyone know the tittle of the book?
