The Piano Teacher
** I love this cover and the story sounds really entertaining so when I was offered a copy to kick-off this being in paperback from Gabrielle @ Penguin, I jumped at the chance.
In the sweeping tradition of The English Patient, a gripping tale of love and betrayal set in war-torn Hong Kong.Claire Pendleton comes to Hong Kong and is hired by the wealthy Chen family as their daughter’s piano teacher. A provincial English newlywed, Claire is seduced by the heady social life of the expatriate community. At one of its elegant cocktail parties, she meets Will, to whom she is instantly attracted—but as their affair intensifies, Claire discovers that Will’s enigmatic persona hides a devastating past. As she begins to understand the true nature of the world she has entered, and long-buried secrets start to emerge, Claire learns that sometimes the price of survival is love.
