Night Music



Isabel has had a gifted life. Attentive husband, affluent lifestyle, two children and is a 1st chair violinist. That is until her husband suddenly passes away.

Struggling with the debt her husband left behind she is forced to move with her two children to a house on the country which is practically falling down.

Pressure mounts to keep her family and house together and Isabel discovers her sense of survival.



My expectations for this book were quite high after reading Me Before You and After You and I wasn’t disappointed. This is a beautiful tale of heart ache, betrayal and romance. It reminds you that when you strip everything back you have the ability to see what is really important.

Isabel initially is a very selfish character. The decision not to sell her violin means that her children’s lives are upended and they have to leave their family home. As the story progresses Isabel starts to actually see her children for who they are she recognises their need for stability and security. She then becomes determined to keep them whole.

Byron was by far my favourite character. He was the perfect mix of kind, humble, compassionate, protective and masculine. The book simply wouldn’t have worked without him.

The plot didn’t really have a fast pace, yet at the same it never felt like it languished either. It just felt comfortable, making this a wonderful book to read on a lazy day.

    I haven’t read any of Jodi Picoult’s books aside from Me Before You. This one sounds very interesting though. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
