The Music Shop by Rachel Joyce (August 2017)

The Music Shop by Rachel Joyce (August 2017)1988 Frank owns a music shop.  It is jam-packed with records of every speed, size and genre.  Classical, jazz, punk - as long as it's vinyl, he sells it.  Day after day, Frank finds his cutomers the music they need.  But while he is loved by many people, Frank is happy alone.

Then into his life walks Ilse Brauchmann.

Ilse asks Frank to teach her about music.  His instinct is to turn and run.  And yet he is drawn to this strangely still, mysterious woman with her pea-green coat and her eyes as black as vinyl.  But Ilse is not what she seems.  And Frank has old wounds that threaten to reopen and a past he will never leave behind.

The Music shop is about learning how to listen and how to feel; it's about second chances and choosing to be brave despite the odds.  Because in the end, music can save us all.
