I realize this book is meant to be whimsical, with characters you'd love to meet and know in your own neighborhood, but when I figured in the first couple of chapters that I could confidently predict what would happen throughout the book, I felt like whimsical characters couldn't make up for that predictability. I absolutely loved Harold Fry (his wife made me laugh and reminded me of people I knew, and of myself at times, too!) but haven't felt the same draw to her follow-up books.

A standing ovation for Rachel Joyce for a beautiful musical romance.

A beautiful & lyrical story. It will give you a new appreciation to music and how it can be the therapy to the soul. The music lessons were mesmerizing.

Who could forget The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry? Rachel Joyce has done it again with her latest novel The Music Shop. Terrific characterisation, sharp, funny dialogue, and a plot twist that will wrench your heart. Unlike Harold Fry, Frank ( the main character) doesn't walk that much but he is prone to outbursts of clumsy running. The book has a marvellous on-the-page soundtrack. Highly recommended reading.
