Music of a life is a novel for the heart. It is elegant and flows so well you really feel like you are standing there with Alexei as he is going thru all these experiences. This novel is a great work that should be kept in a safe place for you will return to it over and over as the years pass and it will only get better. When you think of this author, you will think of the greats like Tolstoy, Proust and Balzac!
