I highly recommend a new 2019 novel ''The Weight of a Piano"" by Chris Cander, the central 'character' is a 100 year old Bluthner upright and Ms Cander weaves a thrilling tale both mysterious and tragic of parallel narratives of the intertwining personalities who both are deeply committed to this piano, great read!

I have just started reading the book.It looks just what I need at the
moment.An easy to read novel involving a piano which has survived
war, and other great conflicts but which was created with love.
To the more cynical -all I can say there is no shame in expressing
ones emotions or delighting in a book like this.
Thank you for suggesting this book!
