Meet teenage drummer Jane Bowman. She's fifteen, funny, and wounded by the loss of her famous percussionist mother. Robin Meloy Goldsby's touching and humorous coming-of-age musical odyssey invites us to tap our toes in time to Jane's powerful music—cheering her on as she mends her shattered heart, finds her groove, and discovers the tragic beauty of human resilience.“Goldsby, who marries the pathos of her plot line with the whimsy and near-magical-realism of her characters, deserves comparison with John Irving, a modern master.”Marion Winik, NPR commentator and author of First Comes Love“Rhythm conveys the magic of sound plus the transformative power of music, and the words—like a well-played melody—ring true.”Peter Erskine, drummer and author of Time Awareness for All Musicians“Rhythm is a beautifully written story, alive with the sound of drums and various percussion instruments.”Amanda Richards, Amazon Top 50 Reviewer
