On a warm spring day after a long New England winter, Hazel and Remy spot each other for the first time in years. Under ordinary circumstances, this meeting might seem insignificant. But Remy, a gifted violinist, is married to the composer Nicholas Elko - once the love of Hazel's life, now struggling with a masterwork he cannot fully realize. In the twenty years since Hazel's world was tipped on its axis, these three artists have faced unexpected joy, mysterious afflictions, and other puzzles of life, their fates irrevocably entwined. From the author of "Russian Winter."

A rich and deeply engrossing world, filled with flawed characters and moving music that seems to rise from the pages. At times it is a tad too mystical and affairs are romanticized, but a decidedly enjoyable and thought provoking summer read nonetheless.

"Sight Reading revolves around a composer and conductor who left his wife and daughter for a musically gifted younger woman and the emotions this provokes in all four characters over the succeeding years. But, as the novel revisits the principal characters in ten-year increments, it's also an exploration of forgiveness and regret, the importance of art in daily life, and the insular world of top musicians. Fans who remember the author's absorbing debut, Russian Winter, will want to snatch up this equally complex and artful story, and it will likely appeal to readers fond of literary, musical fiction, like Kazuo Ishiguro's collection, Nocturnes."

The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.
