The 2008 novel Night Music by Jojo Moyes, the bestselling author of Me Before You and two-time winner of the RNA Novel of the Year award.

'Warm, engaging and acutely observed.' - Woman and Home

Isabel Delancey has always taken her gifted life for granted. But when her husband dies suddenly, leaving her with a mountain of debt, she and her two children are forced to abandon their home and move to a crumbling pile in the country.

With the house falling down around them, and the last of her savings fast disappearing, Isabel turns to her neighbours, not knowing that her mere presence there has stirred up long-standing obsessions.

As she fights to make her house a home, passions and lives collide. Isabel will discover an instinct for survival she never knew she had - and that a heart can play a new song . . .

It is perfectly believable that an artsy person really, really doesn't know anything about maintaining a home that is basically beyond saving. The violin music woven throughout the plot that helps Isabel muddle through life's difficulties is totally realistic. This is a very different tangent for JoJo Moyes compared to her later themes and just as worthy. The music comes to a crescendo as the house comes crashing down, but Isabel remains well grounded throughout and discovers strengths and truths about herself by having to focus on other issues than the music she had been wrapped up in for so long. To learn that your passion and profession aren't the only things that define and limit you is liberating.
