If youve ever had the pleasure of reading one of Lisa Genovas bestselling novels, then you know what to expect in her new book: bold, unflinching honesty; emotional, intimate writing; and relatable characters with whom you will empathize.

Just as Lisas first book Still Alice brought the reality of Alzheimers to life, Every Note Played gives the reader a vivid and authentic depiction of ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). As Lisa has so skillfully shown in her previous New York Times bestselling novels, Inside the OBriens, Love Anthony and Left Neglected, she blends her neuroscience background with her literary skills to create a powerful story not simply about a neurological condition, but also about the human condition. Through the lens of ALS, Every Note Played explores regret, forgiveness, letting go and redemption.

An accomplished concert pianist, every finger of Richards hands was a finely calibrated instrument, dancing across the keys and striking every note with exacting precision. That was eight months ago. Richard now has ALS and his entire right arm is paralyzed. He knows his left arm will go next.

Richards ex-wife Karina is trapped within a prison of excuses and fear, stuck in an unfulfilling life as an afterschool piano teacher, blaming Richard and their failed marriage—for all of it. When Richard becomes increasingly paralyzed and is no longer able to live on his own, Karina becomes his reluctant caretaker. As Richards muscles, voice and breath fade, the two struggle to reconcile their past before its too late.
