“A fictive musical and familial feast.”
-Booklist Reviews

When Hazel and Remy happen upon each other on a warm Boston spring day, their worlds immediately begin to spin. Remy, a gifted violinist, is married to composer Nicholas Elko, who was once the love of Hazel's life. Over the decades, each buried secrets, disappointments, and betrayals that now threaten to undermine their happiness. We follow the notes of their complicated, intertwined lives from 1987 to 2007, from Europe to America, and from conservatory life to the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Sight reading is an exploration of what makes a family, of the importance of art in daily life, and of the role of intuition in both the creative process and the evolution of the self.

Each month, our Book Club focuses on notable titles in a friendly lunchtime setting. The discussions are open to all readers, and the Library will provide extra copies of the selected titles for checkout prior to the discussion. Join other readers; bring your lunch and we will provide the dessert. This program is sponsored by the Placentia Library Friends Foundation.
