His Scottish wife, Clare, is an artist, a tower of strength, fanatically devoted to a musical future for her daughters. This is the story of their life in south London, a life threatened by Piers's streak of tragic folly which keeps them on the verge of financial ruin and social disgrace....

Yes. I've read this book many times and the audio is a great enhancement.
The scene in Kew Gardens, where the family deal with grief by enjoying the beauty of the lapageria vine.
Where Rose and her mother visit Constance and Rosamund for the first time, with exciting results.
This book has so much depth - it's wonderful in its details about music and education; it's a great family story; everything I say is only one facet of the plot. Well worth reading and listening to!
