Blog Tour – ‘The Piano Player’s Son’
I am delighted to be taking part in this blog tour. I chose to review ‘The Piano Player’s Son’ and you can read my thoughts about this novel below.
‘The Piano Player’s Son’ was published by Cinnamon Press last year. This is Lindsay Stanberry-Flynn’s second novel.
To Isabel family life is very important. Her parents appear to have had a blissful marriage and she has tried very hard to create one for herself. All pretence is shattered though when her husband leaves her. On top of that her father dies, which leaves Isabel totally devastated.
Then, a few hours after her father’s death, Isabel’s mother confides in her revealing a secret kept hidden for more than thirty years. Isabel is shocked by the revelation and feels that her sister, Grace and brothers, Rick and George should be told. But her mother makes her promise to stay silent.
‘The Piano Player’s Son’ was a really good and worthwhile read. It is a compelling and very sad story about families where each person is dealing with their own individual tragedies and issues. I liked the writing style and the way this novel was set out. I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next and I almost felt as if I was part of the characters’ lives.
Lindsay Stanberry-Flynn has portrayed her characters well. My favourites were Isabel and Grace. I wasn’t that keen on Rick but I understand how he must have been feeling about things.
I give this book 4 out of 5.
