Although this book is beautifully written Glickman is also a poet it amounts to nothing more than a domestic drama without fully exploring the deeper implications of being a Jew in pre-WW2 London. The main characters are a young Jewish widow and mother of three children, one of whom is a piano prodigy. The boy meets Ned, an emotionally distant Jewish physician and talented violinist, at a concert and Ned becomes his mentor and the lover of the boy's mother.
The mother wants more than the docto Although this book is beautifully written Glickman is also a poet it amounts to nothing more than a domestic drama without fully exploring the deeper implications of being a Jew in pre-WW2 London. The mother wants more than the doctor is ready to provide and in the end, one ends up destroying the other. But the two lovers seem somewhat oblivious to the storm brewing else where in Europe and in their own neighbourhoods. And for some reason, Glickman avoids it too.
Glickman based the story on the experiences of a relative which made the abrupt ending somewhat more believable, but in the end, the book was disappointing.

But that initial sense of being from somewhere never left her. Glickman's love for travel is matched by her love for books. She has worked in bookstores, in publishing, and as an English professor at the University of Toronto. A letter indicating the gift is from you will sent to the recipient.
