Amadeus meets Little Women in this irresistibly delightful historical novel by award-winning author Stephanie Cowell. The year is 1777 and the four Weber sisters, daughters of a musical family, share a crowded, artistic life in a ramshackle house. While their father scrapes by as a music copyist and their mother secretly draws up a list of prospective suitors in the kitchen, the sisters struggle with their futures, both marital and musical - until twenty-one-year-old Wolfgang Mozart walks into their lives. Bringing eighteenth-century Europe to life with unforgiving winters, yawning princes, scheming parents, and the enduring passions of young talent, Stephanie Cowell s richly textured tale captures a remarkable historical figure - and the four young women who engage his passion, his music, and his heart.

This story starts out engaging the reader and is lively and descriptive. You soon begin to wonder which daughter will eventually become the wife of Mozart. Liked the switch between the historical recollection and the present day interview. Would recommend for a glimpse into the beginning musical life of Mozart and those around him.
