I picked this book up recently at the library's book sale. I've heard of this book many times over the years; I may have to add this one to Mt. TBR.

From the cover -
In 1886 a shy, middle-aged piano tuner named Edgar Drake receives an unusual commission from the British War Office: to travel to the remote jungles of northeast Burma and there repair a rare piano belonging to an eccentric army surgeon who has proven mysteriously indispensible to the imperial design. From this irresistible beginning, The Piano Tuner launches readers into a world of seductive, vibrantly rendered characters, and enmeshes them in an unbreakable spell of storytelling.

Sadly, MaryZee passed suddenly in September 2012. MaryZee's daughter is now ready to rehome her mom's books and I was willing to collect and redistribute them to keep her literary legacy alive.

Went to visit my niece in DC and picked this book up on the free table at the Gaithersburg book festival 2019. Went home to Philly today so looks like the book has finally crossed state lines.
