In the midst of what should be a reflective time of life, 74-year-old widower Jules Lecour—cellist, veteran of the war in Algeria, and child of the Holocaust—is confronted by a series of challenges to his principles, livelihood, and home, forcing him to grapple with his complex past. This "masterpiece filled with compassion and humanity" (Kirkus Reviews) by the author of Winter's Tale follows Jules as he risks fraud to save his infant grandson, matches wits with a renegade insurance investigator, is drawn into an act of violence, and—most alarmingly—falls deeply, excitingly in love with a young cellist a third his age.
