When you have a job to do, you try to do it well. At least that's Juliet's intention. She's smart, good at her work, and determined to persuade an aging musician to fulfill his contract. And Lionel considers resistance his best option.
The twists and turns of expectations in human relationships and resistance make this a story you want to finish. The descriptions of beautiful landscapes and surroundings - and a happy ending makes it worth the time. A good read for passing the hours at the beach or on a summer afternoon.
