Nannerl Mozart’s early days seem to be the stuff of fairy tales–traveling far and wide, performing piano concerts with her younger brother, Wolfgang, before the crowned heads of Europe. But behind the glamour lurk dark difficulties–the hardship of travel, agonizing bouts of illness, and the constant concern over money. Their father, Leopold, is driven by a desire to bring his son’s genius to the attention of the world.
But what about Nannerl? Is she not just as talented? In a world where women’s choices are limited, what hope does she have of ever realizing her own dreams?
In this lovingly crafted novel, author Nancy Moser brings to life one of history’s hidden heroines.

…As with other historical novels that I ve read it was fascinating to get a view of what life was like back then. The author didn t pull any punches. She included facts that were hard to read, including the death of so many children. Women had many babies at that time but so many didn t make it until their first birthday.
Nannerl was a complicated person. She was blessed with so many gifts. It was really a pleasure getting to know her. She had a long life but as she looked back on it shortly before her death, she could see how the Lord had been working the whole way through. She had expected her life to go in a much different direction, but admitted that the Lord did indeed know what He was doing and could see His Hand in everything and totally accepted His Will.
I would highly recommend this book.
