Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mannheim, 1777. The four Weber sisters, daughters of a musical family, share a crowded, artistic life in a ramshackle house. Their father scrapes by as a music copyist; their mother keeps a book of prospective suitors hidden in the kitchen. The sisters struggle with these marriage prospects as well as their musical futures-until one evening at their home, when 21-year- old Wolfgang Mozart walks into their lives.

No longer a prodigy and struggling to find his own place in the music world, Mozart is enthralled with the Weber sisters: Aloysi‛s beauty and talent captivates him; Josef‛s rich voice inspires him; Sophie becomes his confidante; and Constanze comes to play a surprising role in his life.

Eighteenth-century Europe comes alive with unforgiving winters and yawning princes; scheming parents and the enduring passions of young talent. Set in Mannheim, Munich, Salzburg and Vienna, Marrying Mozart is the richly textured love story of a remarkable historical figure-and four young women who engaged his passion, his music, and his heart.

Synopsis:

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.

Synopsis:

PRAISE FOR STEPHANIE COWELL AND Nicholas Cooke: "Ms. Cowell has poured heart and a great deal of intelligence into her first novel, about an impetuous, inquisitive young man in an impetuous, inquisitive age."--The New York Times Book Review
