    ReviewI found Eighty Eight Keys by Catherine Lavender to be a book with many surprises As a debut novel, it was quite interesting and it was a pleasure to read However, I personally felt there were too many characters in the book, and at times I found it overwhelming Having two or three main characters in a book are than enough to engage the reader it also helps to establish a connection with said reader I wanted to know about Leah s life, about her trials, and what she went through, as well as what it took for her to break free of the the religious beliefs that music was not to be shared Maybe background and emotional drama and angst between her and her mother, for example, would have given me insight as to what Leah had to endure in the past as well as in the present Secondary characters are great, but I wanted Ms Lavender to focus on the main characters By doing so it makes for great plot development and the reader is invested in the characters.I did like the transition from past to present, giving the reader a glimpse into Leah and Jason s relationship before he died However, the relationship they shared failed to keep me interested His character was flawed, which I don t mind, as I believe flawed characters are a plus in a novel The reader follows them as they mature and change, and they become a better person, if th...
