Publisher's Summary

Mozart's wife aroused strong feelings among her contemporaries. Her in-laws loathed her. Mozart's friends, more than 40 after his death, remained eager to gossip about her "failures" as wife to the world's first superstar. Maturing from child to wife to hard-headed widow, Konstanze paid her husband's debts, provided for their children, and relentlessly marketed and mythologized her brilliant husband. Mozart's letters attest to his affection for Konstanze as well as to their powerful sexual bond. Yet the question remains: why did she never mark his grave?

What the Critics Say

"Celeste Lawson's narration bridges this novel, which crosses historical fiction and romance....Lawson presents distinct and nuanced characters who avoid playing to the soap opera quality of the events in Mozart's life." (AudioFile)
