"Lyrical and lovely."

--David Haynes

 

This debut novel opens with a 9-year-old boy carefully bearing a tiny infant through a furious thunderstorm. Sworn to hide the baby's origins, he delivers the nameless child safely to the doorstep of an unaware family. Decades later, the boy, L.J. Tillman, has matured into a brilliant young jazz saxophonist and is happily married to Olivia, a promising singer who works as a beautician. When the secret L.J. has kept so faithfully is finally revealed, it tears apart his relationship with Olivia and starts a downward spiral that ends with him homeless and playing for pocket change on the streets of New York. For her part, the tormented Olivia, abandoned by L.J., sinks into depression.

 

More Than You Know is the elegantly crafted story of how this shattered couple rescues their marriage: shaken to the core, they discover that truth conforms to its own rules and that love can endure even the most profound injuries.

 

Rosalyn Story, herself a successful musician and writer about music, has created an emotionally consuming page-turner that delves deeply into the mysteries of family and marriage in rich, lyrical prose.
