About this title

Synopsis:

Winner of the 2016 Grace Irwin award, the 2016 young adult fiction award in the crossover category given by the Word Guild, silver for general young adult fiction awarded by Literary Classics.
Set in 1936 Montreal, A Secret Music is the story of Lawrence Nolan, a sensitive fifteen-year-old piano prodigy who grows up in the shadow of his mother's mental illness. Forced to keep this shameful secret, he attempts to raise himself and his ten yearold brother. He counteracts the deep ache and creeping mistrust caused by his mother's emotional absence by escaping into the intense realm of Chopin and Schubert, the only language he understands. When his brother becomes ill, he is left with enormous responsibilities. At a piano competition in Montreal, Lawrence makes a climactic decision that puts his future on hold in order to salvage his family life. In A Secret Music, Susan Doherty Hannaford re-creates the Depression-Era world of Montreal and demonstrates how music can redeem a life.

Book Description:
