Every five years my mother had her fortune read by Lulu Cho, owner of the Golden Lotus Massage Club for Men. Now it was my turn. And Lulu predicted one hurricane of a future for me!

Judith Soo Jin Raphael’s childhood was shaped by her hardworking immigrant mother, her father who left them, and her struggles to fit in as a half-Korean, half-Jewish kid in a tough urban neighborhood. But music lessons gave her a purpose and passion. Now, as Judith’s fiftieth birthday nears, she has rewarding work as a cellist with the Maryland Philharmonic, an enthusiastic if uncommitted lover, and a quirky but close relationship with her mother.

Then chaos strikes: Judith’s first love, who dumped her decades ago, returns to dazzle her with his golden pedigree and brilliant career. Her long-absent father arrives out of the blue with a snazzy car and a con man’s patter, turning her mother into a love-struck flirt whom Judith barely recognizes. All this while her mentor at the orchestra falls seriously ill. No wonder Judith develops a paralyzing case of stage fright.

Judith finds herself feeling—and sometimes acting—slightly unhinged, but she’s convinced that happiness will arrive any day now. She’s just got to hold on tight during this midlife shake-up...and claim the prize that life surely has in store for her.

I'm a male; could not put this book down - What a Read!

II'm a male (this novel was recommended by my sister); from the first page, I was hooked; could not put this book down. I was caught up in the plots and subplots, and they all made sense. Additionally, my musical education and knowledge of a different culture was expanded. The characters were very real-- we feel their weaknesses and strengths because we have them--and the dialog, wit and humor were spot on. I bookmarked so many passages because of their cleverness that I had to give up, as I was bookmarking almost every page on my IPad. No exaggeration! This novel will touch you, make you laugh, and get to your heart. It is captivating. It would make a wonderful movie with background musical score following the episodes and maybe a cameo by Yo Yo Ma!
