Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

A novel that has been compared to THE FRENCH LIEUTENANT'S WOMAN and POSSESSION - an ambitious new literary departure for New York Times bestselling author Manette Ansay.

Two extraordinary women, and two love stories separated by centuries - an ingenious fusion of fiction and fact, inspired by the story of Clara Schumann.

Forty-two and newly divorced, Jeanette Hochmann is trying to reassemble her life with her young daughter. Lately, the world seems bereft of the passion that s always inspired and sustained her, first as a child prodigy at the piano, later as a novelist.

Now, she s struggling to write a novel based on the relationship between nineteenth-century German pianist Clara Schumann and her husband s handsome young protege, the composer Johannes Brahms. Was theirs just a close friendship, or was it something more?

As Jeanette delves deeper into Clara s story, she uncovers uncanny parallels with her own life. And just when she s least expecting it, she embarks on a love affair of her own.
