Playing with Keys. Julia Osborne
'…and we will be like two stars circling about each other, drawn together – a double star…' It's 1961 and life turns upside-down when 15-year-old Sandra and her family move to the city from their small country town. She's upset to leave behind her beloved piano teacher, her almost-boyfriend Nick Morgan, and especially best friend Emilia. Heart-searching letters fly between the two girls as Sandra's ambition to be a concert pianist takes a new direction and she is overwhelmed by an unexpected and dangerous friendship. &quot;…a retro teenage romance with adulthood more than a shadowland on the fringes. Absorbing as a sequel to The Midnight Pianist, excellent as a book on its own.&quot; – David Brooks Candida Baker on The Midnight Pianist – 'A delightful coming-of-age story about first love, teenage dreams and the courage to face reality… all told through a filter of beautiful music.'
