** spoiler alert ** Beethoven’s experience of deafness is presented as an example of the stages of grief and overcoming suffering. Jenny Robson is one of my favorite writers from southern Africa, but this is not her best writing. I found the style contrived, condescending and preachy—a shame when Paddy Bouma’s period illustrations are so gorgeous.
