Time again for another book recommendation from our residents! Today’s book is “The Ensemble”, by Aja Gabel.
This novel gives a riveting look into the high-stakes, cutthroat world of musicians, and of lives made in concert. The story follows four unforgettable characters; Brit, Henry, Daniel and Jana. Together, they are the Van Ness Quartet.
The youthful group have a rocky start and experience devastating failure, heartbreak, betrayal, triumph and loss. But, their resilience and intensity for their art drive them towards wild success. They would never have become family without their love for the music, for each other. This is a heart-skipping read, filled with ambition, friendship, and the tenderness of youth.
