Summary "Music was everything to Marcia Butler. Growing up in an emotionally desolate home with an abusive father and a distant mother, she devoted herself completely to the discipline and rigor of the oboe and quickly became a young prodigy on the rise in New York City's competitive music scene. But haunted by troubling childhood memories while balancing the challenges of a busy life as a working musician, she succumbed to dangerous men, drugs, and self-destruction. In her darkest moments, Marcia asked the hardest question of all: could music truly save her life?"--Jacket flap.
