The death of legendary jazz trumpeter Joss Moody exposes an extraordinary secret. Unbeknown to all but his wife Millie, Joss was a woman living as a man. The discovery is most devastating for their adopted son, Colman, whose bewildered fury brings the press to the doorstep and sends his grieving mother to the sanctuary of a remote Scottish village.

I would definitely listen again. I was easily able to connect with the main characters and the narrator did a fantastic job of bringing them to life.
There were times when her narration felt so real and so raw that it brought me to tears.
I loved Millie. I truly felt like she was sharing her love, her grief, and her memories with me. My heart broke for her at times.
"Love, loss and some laughs."
Yes. I have the print edition but am currently hooked on all things audio.
Definitely Millie. I liked her honesty, the fact that what she and Joss had was no less real than any other couple
Again it was Millie. Some heartbreakingly tender descriptions of her love for Joss.
If music be the food of love, play Jazz.
Thoroughly enjoyed the book.
