The Piano Player’s Son
Lindsay Stanberry – Flynn
I am delighted to be part of the blog tour for this book.
I took this book on holiday with me and I am so glad I did.
This is Lyndsay’s second novel, after her debut novel – Unravelling.
This story is about a family,dealing with the consequences of bereavement. After the death of their father the mother shares a secret with her daughter Isabel, but this secret is hard to keep. The secret creates problems as the story unfolds.
The story takes place in 4 different locations which could be confusing, however the author manages the story with ease, allowing the reader to easily follow the story without taking anything away from the plot itself.
The characters of the were full of life. Complex, but simple enough for the reader to understand their thoughts and feelings. George was my favourite character, he is the quieter of the siblings. Rick was the character is disliked the most. He was written so well as he is a complex character driven by his past.
I don’t want to talk about the plot too much as I don’t want to give too much away. There are twists that I had to re read as I didn’t see them coming at all (and normally I am pretty good and predicting what would happen next in a novel).
I am going to recommend this book to my book club as I think the characters in the book would make a great discussion.
A great second novel and I would recommend as a must read!
Thank you to Silverwood Books for send me a copy to read and review.
