Summary
"The Piano weaves the passionate tale of Ada, a young mute woman desired by two men. Sold into marriage to a husband who doesn't understand her, Ada finds herself drawn to her darkly intense neighbor, stirring up vengeful jealousies and violent emotions. But in the end, only one man truly understands how to win Ada's heart, through her beloved piano."--Container
