This is a heavy story about a concert pianist and family of classical musicians. There's lots of tension and drama between the characters. I was drawn in because I'm a classical singer and love classical music. It's hard to believe that it will have a positive resolve, but it does in the end and despite my resistance to the dark aspects of the characters and story, I enjoyed reading it.

I'm also from the state of Iowa and the author is living there, plus one of the significant characters is gay and that also drew me in. I was curious of the town where the author sets the story and it exists, but it's hardly worth noticing, so that part is true fiction.
