Frank always seems to know exactly which record his customers need to hear. (Yes, vinyl records – not those awful cassette tapes or newfangled shiny CDs.) Yet when Ilse comes into his shop, fixes his pencil sharpener, and asks for music appreciation lessons, he doesn’t know whether to run or to proceed. You can’t help but hope these quirky characters overcome past wounds to find each other.
(It was great fun to listen to the musical pieces as they were mentioned in the novel – just a search away on YouTube!)
