Stacey’s mother has disappeared. Alzheimer’s has taken her and left a shell. Except, one night, Stacey—a composer who has given up everything to care for her mother—can’t take it any more. She sits at the piano. The music reveals amazing things, things Stacey does not expect, things she cannot hope for.
Also included is the full bonus story "Stille Nacht."
