It's never too late to be more "you" than you were before.

As a fierce nor’easter bears down on her Massachusetts town, Fiona Richter places a frantic 911 call. Her husband, Simon, eighty years old and suffering from dementia, has gone missing from the house—along with his clarinet.

So begins The Singing Stick, the story of a son, his long-dead mother, and the music that anchors them both in times of great unmooring.

"A startling tour de force."
