Publisher's Summary

Now published in the United States for the first time - an early novel from the number one New York Times best-selling author of The Giver of Stars.

Isabel Delancey, a classical violinist, has always taken her comfortable 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 the Spanish House, a now-dilapidated manor Isabel inherited in the English countryside.

With the house falling down around them, and the last of her savings disappearing fast, Isabel turns to her neighbors for help, 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....

This one took me a minute

I just finished listening to this book about 30 minutes ago. It took me a while to get into the story, to become vested in the characters and the plot. It is Jojo Moses after all, so surely it will be a great read, right? I read somewhere that this was her very first book. That said, if I would not have read her other books first, and this was the first book of hers I read, I would not have read the others.

Still, this book is good, but it takes a while to get into it. So, knowing this, use your credit wisely.

Not great

Since i really enjoyed giver of stars by this author, i was excited to start this book. Well it was very difficult to get into and at some points difficult to follow jumping around w characters. It just wasn’t that good. Frustrating and not a believable story but wanted to see it through. Honestly disappointing and now that I’m finished I realized it was just plain boring. I usually learn something interesting when I read a book like this whether it be about a topic or a historical event. This book had no depth, climax and certainly not a very good finish.

Elegant and beautiful

The narrator's voice is so elegant and calming, it was a lovely listen. The story was unique and kept my interest the whole time! simply beautiful.

It felt like a Harlequin Romance

I love JoJo Moyes but this book reminded me a bit of a bodice ripper I might have read in Junior High. Better than that but not her best.

Not as good as Giver of Stars

Hard to pin down the time period…not until half way through did we have a character on a cell phone (unless I wasn’t listening carefully), so it felt like a huge time warp when suddenly there was reference to cell phone and computer games. Also not as believable of a story as I’d like, partly due to the ending. the ending was really disappointing. Partial SPOILER: the antagonist’s choices were written off / excused as a mental breakdown. And the love story & chance at hope and redemption is shrouded in a secret.

Need to pay attention when the story switches POV

Very interesting ensemble cast of characters. Could not guess where the story would go next, unique and worth it!!

Engaging Obsessions

Love, Manipulation, Greed, Betrayal...hard to put down.
Characters evoke pity, empathy, and anger from the reader. Night Music makes you FEEL.
