Celeste Lawson's narration bridges this novel, which crosses historical fiction and romance. The story of Mozart's adult life is told from the perspective of his long-suffering (or hard-hearted, depending on your perspective) wife. It’s the story of her passion for her husband and her struggle to survive being a married to a musical genius who gave little care to the money required to support a lifestyle of parties, hard drinking, and chasing after women and the fickle patronage of aristocrats, upon whom they depended. Lawson presents distinct and nuanced characters who avoid playing to the soap opera quality of the events in Mozart’s life. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
