Wolfgang Pike is a doctor, musician and soon-to-be priest. The time is the late 1920s at a tuberculosis sanitarium high on a hill outside Louisville, an area that suffered a huge death toll during the epidemic. Wolfgang believes music can ease suffering; head physician Barker is a doubter. An avid reader's book group read this book; she liked and recommended it-the music, the history. After reading the authors acknowledgements I believe the book was expanded from a short story or novella into this full length novel. There were too many stories waiting to be heard, then lumped together at the end and lots more historical asides than I thought it needed. It was conveniently set in winter in the cold; what happened to these fevered patients in the summer?
