WINNER OF THE ACADEMY AWARD FOR BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY. In her award-winning film THE PIANO, Jane Campion told a love story that transfixed millions the world over. Although she had already spent ten years writing and making the film, Campion continued to be haunted by her characters and decided to tell the whole story....Ada, together with her nine-year old illegitimate daughter, Flora, and her piano, arrive in nineteenth-century New Zealand for a marriage Ada's father has arranged. Ada has not spoken since she was six years old, but she sees her piano as her own special voice. When she learns that her husband has given the piano to the illiterate Baines in exchange for some land, she and Baines strike a bargain which draws all three into a complex emotional and sexual bond.

I loved the story and really appreciated learning the back story that the movie omitted. I loved knowing this was a true story and how much research the author did to uncover what really happened. I have loaned this book out and others have enjoyed it profusely.
I loved the movie. This book is even better. It captures all the mystique, the exotic setting and the quirky characters of this Victorian Gothic story, --- just excellent!
I didn't realize in was going to be in the screen play format!
Loved the movie - the book is awesome and should be read and enjoyed by everyone who saw the movie.
The book is more interesting than the film.
The movie is a favorite of mine and until recently I was unaware of the book. I enjoyed the quick read.
The movie was better in visual description, but the story is still a great read.
