I have always loved Uvi Poznansky’s work and ‘The White Piano’ begins on

I have always loved Uvi Poznansky’s work and ‘The White Piano’ begins on a perfect note-“About a year ago I sifted through the contents of my suitcase, and was just about to discard a letter….” The reader is intrigued and sets on a beautiful impressionable journey filled with delightful stories. The beauty of this work lies in the fact that it can be read as a standalone novel or as a series of events that can be deciphered separately. Personally I really liked ‘She is looking out the window’. This particular piece has the intensity of a silent stream, as characters talk about trivial matters on the surface, but there is a storm brewing inside their hearts. It is very evident from the simple conversation that is tinged with so much that remains unsaid. ‘I think I can see that eye. It looks in, unblinking. It can read the signs of our silence. I want to speak— but find myself unable’. The unsaid is so powerful that it is like flicking light-switches with wet fingertips. As I delved deep into the pages, I got a vivid glimpse of people and characters that are not only human but also immensely lovable. They suffer from all the weaknesses that shroud most peoples’ lives and their joys and sorrows are something every reader can relate to. This novel is a unique mix of ordinary and the extraordinary. ‘The White Piano’ by Uvi Poznansky has the power to unravel situations that are complex as she brilliantly peeps into the minds of her characters in an attempt to disentangle all complexities. ‘There it is, that sound again. And again— just like last night— it is only a whisper...’ This book may be a gentle whisper, but it is enough to satisfy a hungry reader who loves to delve deep into the emotional psyche of people and live every moment of this gift.
