First of all, this cover. Oh my gosh – it’s gorgeous. I know I shouldn’t judge a book by a cover but that was the reason I picked up this book and I’m glad I did.

This is the story of four friends who are classical musicians navigating their relationships, ambition and the apparently fiercely competitive musical world.

Jana, Brit, Daniel and Henry only became friends because they needed each other’s instrumental part and talent to become the award-winning Van Ness Quartet. What they found was that they needed each other in order to be their best musically, professionally and personally. Each section begins with a selection of chamber music that musically sets the stage for the time in the characters’ lives.
