On a Boston street one warm spring day, Hazel and Remy spot each other for the first time in years. Though their meeting might seem insignificant, Remy, a gifted violinist, is married to the composer Nicholas Elko--once the love of Hazel's life. It has been twenty years since Remy, an ambitious conservatory student; Nicholas, a wunderkind on the cusp of success and its challenges; and the beautiful and fragile Hazel first met. From Europe to America, from conservatory life to the Boston Symphony Orchestra, they have forged crisscrossing paths of thrills and doubts, wonders and betrayals, each discovering how the quest to create something real and true can lead to deep personal revelations. As Remy and Hazel find themselves once more linked by shifting fate, Sight Reading explores the mysteries of intuition and perception while unspooling a transporting story of marriage, family, and long-held secrets.
