The lives of the four Weber sisters are changed by the arrival of twenty-one-year-old Wolfgang Mozart, a young man struggling to find his place in the eighteenth-century musical world.

Blackwell North Amer
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 when twenty-one-year-old Wolfgang Mozart walks into their home and their lives.
No longer a prodigy and struggling to find his own place in the music world, Mozart is enthralled with the Weber sisters: Aloysia's beauty and talent captivate him; Josefa's rich voice inspires him; Sophie becomes his confidante; and Constanze comes to play a surprising role in his life. Marrying Mozart is the love story of a remarkable historical figure - and four young women who engaged 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.
