Charlotte, a reclusive singer trying to find the purest expression of her voice, falls silent. She has to find a way to reclaim her voice and autonomy, and to hold on to the closest thing to family she's ever had—the young, roguish Theo.
"Emotional and entertaining, Chiasson takes readers on a deep exploration of the inner workings of a unique cast of characters, all set in Vancouver."
"A beautifully shaped novel with gentle notes of human frailty and sadness that evokes compassion."
—The Miramichi Reader
"An engrossing novel! I had to read the compelling last chapters while standing/lurching inside a cramped 99 B-Line bus during rush hour. I loved how the book describes the internal and external musical experiences of the main character."
—Fiona Tinwei Lam, author of Odes & Laments, Enter the Chrysanthemum, Double Lives
