First thoughts after I finished: "I want to read more about Nannerl!"

I love books that make me feel as if I have a front row seat to the story and this one delivered in that aspect in every way. I love historical fiction, especially when the author finds such an interesting and real life person such as Nannerl. I hate to admit the fact that I didn't even realize that Mozart had a sister! My heart hurt for her knowing how much she sacrificed over the years. Her father forced her to put her own love and talent for music on the back burner. Instead, Mozart took front and center while she took care of their father until his death.  I loved her spirit and how she really became immersed into trying to find out the truth about her brother's death.

Recommend?  Nothing intrigues me more than true facts blended with fiction. I was totally immersed into this story and didn't want it to end. You should all know by now that I make a habit of reading "About the book or Afterwards" before diving into the story. I'm always glad that I do because it has really added to my enjoyment of the story. I did what the author suggested and listened to specially selected music. I think it really helped to put me into the mood and captured the time period perfectly. I highly recommend this book to lovers of music, intrigue, mystery and beautifully written historical fiction!
