The Piano Time Rag
by Leah Cutter
Sadie Louise restores wooden furniture, returning it to its former glory. With just a touch, she finds the strength flowing along the grain or where a joint will shatter with the right pressure.
She also frees the spirits she discovers in the wood, trapped there by accident or design.
The spirit Sadie finds in an old player piano is unlike any other.
Maybe not all spirits should be freed.
