In 1792 Vienna, Nannerl Mozart realizes that aspirations do not always unfold into destiny. Since birth, she and her brother were trained to love music and perform to perfection. As they demonstrated their various talents before royalty, Nannerl could not help but dream of a life filled with applause and musical appreciation.

Yet when tragedy strikes the Mozart family, Nannerl is forced to relinquish her musical ambition and her marriage plans. Can she ever reconcile the life she must live with the life she longs for? (BETHANY HOUSE, Sep., 320 pp., $12.99)
