Description
A budding pianist will not be stopped, even by Nazis In February 1938, in Vienna, twelve-year-old Greta Radky is devastated to learn that her mother plans to sell the family piano. Greta's brother, a concert pianist, died the previous April, and her mother thinks of the piano as his. But Greta is an equally committed musician, and when she meets a mysterious piano teacher who agrees to work with her, she proves it. With his help the piano is saved, and inspired by his tiny angel doll, Greta practices furiously for her first recital. Then, on the day of the performance, the Nazis invade Austria. Suddenly Greta discovers her teacher's secret and knows that his life is in danger. Having stood up to her mother, Greta must now confront the Nazis...Maurine Dahlberg's fascinating first novel features an indomitable heroine in an unusual and subtle Holocaust setting.
