The Piano Woman
Finally, after a number of Co-Vid delays, my first book of fiction is available though the link below or at Readings, Dymocks and all good bookshops.
The Piano Woman is a story that highlights the fragility of family, the price of love and the importance of traditions that can sometimes save us from ourselves.
On the threshold of World War II, a young woman from a titled family in the south of England disappears, seemingly without trace.
In 2016 on the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia, Maddison Browne is a romantic fiction writer who is lucked out in love and scared that her best days as an author are over. When she learns that she is to inherit an antique piano from a woman she has never heard of, she wonders why and is driven to find out.
In England, Maddison unearths a century-old secret that leads her to a family she never knew she had and an entanglement in affairs of state, And she meets someone who might turn her life around.
I am greatly indebted to a number of people who helped make it a reality. I thank all of them in the acknowledgements in the book but wanted to let them know how thankful I am for their assistance.
I really hope you enjoy it!
Hector Crawford — the name remains synonymous with Australian television.
The tag line ‘This has been a Crawford Production’ still resonates with generations of Australians who grew up with his cops, the Sullivan family or any of the long line of productions that flowed from his legendary company.
His public façade is part of our collective memory, but the man behind it, and how his passion and drive changed Australian culture, is revealed in Hector.
In this compelling account of Crawford’s life Rozzi Bazzani recounts vividly how, as his influence grew, the off-screen politics employed by the TV networks and rivals to diminish his company’s power became as exciting as any of his on- screen dramas.
