My mother & I both really enjoyed this book! You get a flavor of life in Mozart's time without being weighed down with a lot of detail. The story progresses throughout and is *wonderful*! Even if you never thought you were a fan of Mozart's, this is a great book just for the storytellng aspect. The fact that you get a glimpse of the genius of one of our best-loved composers of all time is a bonus!

Highest recommendations!

Enjoyable, quick read based on historical facts on Mozart's relationships and eventual marriage of one of the four Weber sisters. I thought some of the sisters converstations in the first 4th of the book was somewhat stilted; I could see this was done as to give the reader some background information on the parent's early life. Other than that, I enjoyed this and had a hard time putting it down.

A quick read. Not among the best books I've read because the plot seemed rather flat and contrived. Nonetheless it was an interesting glimpse into Mozart's domestic life. I hadn't realized that his wife Constanze came from such a musical family and that Mozart was close to all three of her other sisters.

A lively journey into the not too well known personal life of Mozart and his beautiful musical legacy.

Sweet little novel about the Weber sisters, their coming of age, and their various relationships to Mozart. Apparently in "real" history Mozart did know the Weber family and in addition to marrying one of the sisters, credited them as the inspiration to many of the female characters in his operas.

This book gave lots of insight into Mozart as he was making his way thru family, the music world, coming of age and gave wonderful dimension to this brilliant artist. The Weber family is finally described in a way that is so captivating as they were artists as well as an important part of the artistic community of Vienna.

The book started out with promise, but soon became inappropriate and I stopped.
