Thanks Robin,

So weird I couldn't get it by searching Amazon.
Just purchased. Can't wait to read it.

Good, Josuff—glad you got through. Enjoy the book!

Just got word that International Piano will be publishing a review and excerpt in their summer issue! So I'm very happy about that—it's a nice magazine.

I'm very excited about meeting some PW members on their European tour in less than two weeks. I'll be doing a little concert and reading for them on June 8th, at Schloss Lerbach. What fun!

Big wedding to play this evening. The bride booked me after she read the book, but assured that she didn't have any tattoos!

I just finished it.

Loved it - it is even better than the Memoirs!

I think one aspect that I especially enjoyed was reading about another person's experiences with moving to a new country where you don't speak the language. I have been through so much of what you describe, I can only imagine all the stories you had to sift through before deciding which ones to include.

I wept with laughter and I wept with an aching heart - This is a splendid, well-written book. Every chapter has its own message, and these cover the full spectrum of human experience and emotion.

I would even recommend this book to non-piano playing folks smile

Lovely work Robin, I hope your sales are rocketing - you have written a little gem here.

Thank you so much, Casinitaly!!! Since you live in Italy, you probably related to the expatriate theme that runs through the book.

I know that the one very sad story in the book is a departure from the easy-breezy fun style of the other pieces, but, as you must guess, it was a story I really needed to write.

Thank you again for your very kind words.

I bought both your books to take to camp over Memorial Day weekend. Since the weather was cold and wet, I snuggled up all weekend and finished both. These are keepers! They will live on my bookshelf in perpetuity. I can't even tell you how much I enjoyed them. Hope you write another one soon!

We are meeting Robin tomorrow here in Germany, can't wait.
I agree, her books are wonderful.

Thank you, Sandy! Wow, two books in one weekend? That's real Piano Girl marathon. You've made me very happy with your post.

Frank, it's six in the morning and you and the PW tour group are probably having breakfast and preparing for your trip from Hamburg to Cologne. I can't believe that in a few hours I will finally meet you face to face. Have a safe trip, and John and I will meet you at the WDR Funkhaus at 2:00.

Tomorrow, Wednesday. I am doing a private reading and concert for the PW group at Schlosshotel Lerbach, the castle where I play the piano every weekend. This place is the source for many of the stories in the new book.

Thanks, Renata! I'm really proud of this recording. I think I was so focused on the book, I forgot to be nervous for the recording session, so I've ended up with a pretty relaxed album of some of my favorite tunes. In my business, "relaxed" is good!

I am so happy to report that I now have twelve 5-star reviews for the book on Amazon, some of them from PW members. THANK YOU!!!!

It was an honor and pleasure to perform for the PW European tour group at Schlosshotel Lerbach. What fun it was to finally meet Frank Baxter and some of the other PW participants.
