The Lucy Variations (Compact Disc)

Special Order - Subject to Availability


Lucy Beck-Moreau once had a promising future as a concert pianist. The right people knew her name, her performances were booked months in advance, and her future seemed certain.

That was all before she turned fourteen.

Now, at sixteen, it s over. A death, and a betrayal, led her to walk away. That leaves her talented ten-year-old brother, Gus, to shoulder the full weight of the Beck-Moreau family expectations. Then Gus gets a new piano teacher who is young, kind, and interested in helping Lucy rekindle her love of piano on her own terms. But when you re used to performing for sold-out audiences and world-famous critics, can you ever learn to play just for yourself?

National Book Award finalist Sara Zarr takes listeners inside the exclusive world of privileged San Francisco families, top junior music competitions, and intense mentorships. "The Lucy Variations" is a story of one girl s struggle to reclaim her love of music and herself. It s about finding joy again, even when things don t go according to plan. Because life isn t a performance, and everyone deserves the chance to make a few mistakes along the way. "
