If you're prone to crying when reading a touching story, then do not read the end of Lisa Genova's Every Note Played in a public place. If you're like me, you will be reading through blurry eyes as you wipe away tears. Genova's latest book is like her others, Still Alice, Left Neglected, Love Anthony and Inside the O’Briens, in that she writes about a neurological disease, this time ALS. Richard is a world famous pianist, divorced from Karina and an absent father to Grace, who is stricken with ALS at the height of his career. When Karina takes on the job as his caretaker, a story of forgiveness and self realization for both characters emerges.
