The ending of the book was a bit trite, just too little left to the imagination. Nevertheless the plot was fascinating and the female protagonist was strong and resourceful. The issue of 'assisted death' both for her elderly mother with end stage cancer and her business partner with blood poisoning would make an interesting book club discussion. Like we did to Alberta's Joseph Latimer, (1980) would Canadians bring this woman to a murder trial today? The Piano maker had endured so much tragedy and trauma, stigma and separation. I guess she did deserve a good rest in her old age.
