Mannheim, 1777. The four Weber sisters, daughters of a musical family, share a crowded, artistic life in a ramshackle house. Their father scrapes by as a music copyist; their mother keeps a book of prospective suitors hidden in the kitchen. The sisters struggle with these marriage prospects as well as their musical futures-until one evening at their home, when 21-year- old Wolfgang Mozart walks into their lives.No longer a prodigy and struggling to find his own place in the music world, Mozart is enthralled with the Weber sisters: Aloysias beauty and talent captivates him; Josefas rich voice inspires him; Sophie becomes his confidante; and Constanze comes to play a surprising role in his life.Eighteenth-century Europe comes alive with unforgiving winters and yawning princes; scheming parents and the enduring passions of young talent. Set in Mannheim, Munich, Salzburg and Vienna, Marrying Mozartis the richly textured love story of a remarkable historical figure-and four young women who engaged his passion, his music, and his heart.
