I read this book as a teenager at the recommendation of my dad. At the time, Gianni's struggles resonnated with my desire for spirituality and art. The idea that music can be a way into the deepest places of ourselves captivates me - which is why I reread the book every so often.

Great fictional biography of a musician's journey toward Jesus. Meaningful and moving in parts as he wrestles with family members and his past.

I read this book as a teenager at a time when I really needed it. Re-read it recently and enjoyed it all over again.

Love this book.

It's the third time I've read it, and there are still parts that really make me think about life and what it means.

I'd recommend it to anyone.
I've read almost all of Davis Bunn's books, and this one was my very favorite!
