“A moving tribute to the spirit of a forgotten sibling. Music imbues every gripping page, and in revealing Nannerl, Charbonnier also gives us a different view of Mozart, both rounding out and exploding the myths of his brief, tragic life.”
—Susanne Dunlap, author of Emilie’s Voice and Liszt’s Kiss
“A dysfunctional family, sex scandals, and true love?—eighteenth-century Europe was a far different world from ours, yet Rita Charbonnier’s skill and verve make us feel at home, and we cheer for the brilliant, resilient Nannerl as she struggles to become much more than Mozart’s sister.”
—Karen Harper, author of The Last Boleyn
“If you sympathized with Salieri when you watched Amadeus, wait until you find out what happened to Nannerl, Mozart’s sister. As brilliantly talented as her younger brother, she had a famous musical career that was ruthlessly turned into a mere addendum to his. Mozart’s Sister brings an intriguing woman back to life.”
—India Edghill, author of Wisdom’s Daughter
