Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "An overlooked pianist who finally receives fraught success after decades of disappointment. An elusive dancer whose fiancé is desperate to untangle her untimely death. A mysterious patient who is comatose after a violent accident. These are the three women who animate Olaf Olafsson's brilliantly rendered One Station Away. Magnus, a New York neurologist -- son to one, lover to another, and doctor to a third -- is the thread that binds these women's stories together as he navigates relationships defined by compromise and misunderstanding, guilt and forgiveness, and, most of all, by an obsessive attempt to communicate -- to understand and to be understood, to love and to be loved. A deeply affecting family tale, a heartrending love story that spans the globe, and a suspenseful drama at the edge of the mystery of life and death, One Station Away is a profoundly moving story of memory, identity, and misconnection; a novel of haunting power and lasting insight." -- From publisher's description.
