Are you a music lover? Have you ever found yourself slipping away, lost inside the notes of a great tune? If so, you will love this book!

Wilson brings us a down and out band, playing in dive bars and drinking way too much alcohol. They're all in search of that one song that will be their own; the one that will bring them fame. Then a chance encounter between one member and an old man playing achingly beautiful blues on a harmonica takes them on a strange journey that changes all their lives. We crawl inside the musical notes and experience the pain and redemption in a way I've never experienced with a written word. ( )
