Dog-gone it, this could have been a great novel with all the genuine material but WTF? Anachronis-mo-matic. Look, we all want to avenge our oppressed sisters of the past, but if there were really peasants urging girls of gentle birth to fight for their dreams in 18th century Austria I will eat my tricorn. Kudos for some of the characters and their dialogue (Mozart’s mom, smary-ass teen Mozart, usw) but I was bummed.
For one thing, I didn’t know that Mozart even had a sister, let alone that she was also a musical prodigy who used to tour Europe and perform duets with her genius younger brother. I loved this book for teaching me a little history, as well as providing a lush backdrop of the 18th century in Austria, Italy, Versailles, etc. This is a debut novel by Ms. Charbonnier and it took me a little while to settle into the style- the first half of the novel left me somewhat unsatisfied in terms of writing
