The violin does something remarkable, magical, and evocative.

No other instrument is steeped in such a rich brew of myth and lore - and yet the making of a violin starts with a simple block of wood. The Violin Maker takes the reader on a journey as that block of wood, in the hands of a master craftsman, becomes an instrument to rival one made by the greatest master of all time.
