Summary
"From the Whitbread Award winning author of: A Good Man in Africa and the Costa Award winning Restless, a sweeping, electrifying new novel set at the end of the 19th century that follows the fortunes of a young Scottish musician embarking across Europe and into the tumultuous, impassioned story of his life. When Brodie Moncur is offered a job in Paris, he seizes the chance to flee Edinburgh and his tyrannical clergyman father, and begin a wildly different chapter in his life. In Paris, a fateful encounter with a famous pianist abruptly alters his path--and irrevocably changes his future as it ignites an obsessive love affair with the beautiful Russian soprano, Lika Blum. From Paris to St. Petersburg and back to Edinburgh, Brodie cannot free himself of his love for Lika--nor of its increasingly dangerous consequences. A tale of dizzying passion and brutal revenge; of artistic endeavor and the illusions it can create; of the possibilities that life offers and the cruel speed with which they can be snatched away. At once an intimate portrait of one man's life and a vivid tapestry of the change and turbulence at the dawn of a new century, Love is Blind is a masterly novel from one of the most widely admired and acclaimed fiction writers at work today."--
