Sarah Broadhurst's view...
I wonder if perhaps Emily Barr used Jacqueline du Pre for her inspiration here for this centres on a highly-strung, strong-willed classical musician whose personal life conflicts with her professional one.

Atlantic Shift by Emily Barr
Gorgeous, world-famous cellist Evie Silverman is classical-lite through and through. Real musicians despise her. Her talent has been promoted way beyond its value because – apparently – everyone loves a blonde girl in lipstick who can do interesting things between her thighs. She’s played for the President of the United States. She’s played at No 10 Downing Street. And tonight she’s playing for Royalty. But tonight she’s also going to change her life. Tonight she’s going to leave her husband. Tonight, for the first time in fifteen years, she’s going to stand on her own two feet. For tomorrow begins her new life – starting with a trip to New York. It all too soon becomes apparent that breaking the rules – and escaping from your past – isn’t what it’s cracked up to be…
