pique posted on the California fires topic, and I noticed her link at the bottom which took me to "Grand Obsession" by Perri Knize.

I can't wait to read this novel! "One woman's obsessive search for the perfect piano and about finding a pursuing passion".....and so much more.

You will want to look at this website and make the discovery yourself - the synopis is gravitating - and she's one of us here at PWF!

Take a peek!

www.grandobsession.com

Thanks!

Betty

It's actually not a novel. It documents her journey in finding her piano, having it restored to the sound she wants, plus a lot of other neat piano stuff.

Dear Santa,

This book should come out in January, but you can purchase some early for Christmas. That's now on my Santa Claus list....and I've been a very good girl this year, Santa!
