About this title:

Synopsis: A son’s coming to terms with his mother’s decision to abandon her career as a concert pianist in order to raise her children.

This is the story of one woman’s decision to forfeit a brilliant career for the sake of motherhood. Once a child prodigy, Gitta Gradova traveled the world as an internationally acclaimed concert pianist, performing recitals as well as appearing with prominent orchestras of her era. Her son Thomas J. Cottle uses written records, interviews, and personal reminiscence to reconstruct her life, as well as their own mother-son relationship. He is at times a storyteller, at times a psychologist, at times a son seeking to uncover those aspects of his mother’s life he could never know, or perhaps, chose not to know until it was too late.
