Much better than the movie! The story contrasts the constraints of Edwardian social propriety with a world of spontaneity and passion. In it a young woman, whose only contact with moments of real emotion is playing Beethoven, awakens to find herself at odds with both worlds. A beautiful love story. Narration is excellent, but English accent takes some adaptation for American listeners: ha ha! another contrast of cultures!
