Mozart's Wife a powerful story
I really enjoyed this book. Very seldom do we get a good look into the lives of the famous and infamous. While this was historical fiction given the known history of this couple (from their letters), the mood and activities of the rich and priviledged from this period, the morals of the times etc this story feels real. I loved some of the day to day stuff about servants, bills, parties, friends,family and the struggles of marriage. You get a great sense of the power and passion that Mozart had for his wife, music and women in general. I was surprised by some of the passionate descriptions. Overall this story made you care about its characters and the sadness of unappreciated genius and wasted love.

Fascinating and well researched
This book held my attention for the entire time--I also found myself researching items presented on the internet-- to learn more about the time period. This was my first historical fiction and I will be looking for more to listen to.
