Mozart’s Wife

By

Mozart’s Wife is a delightfully written novel about Wolfgang Mozart as seen through the eyes of his beloved wife Konstanze.  The ongoing drama between husband and wife is always admirably paced.  The dialogue is charged with reality, sexuality and humor. Waldron effortlessly draws the daily crises that Konstanze must endure during her marriage to a fickle, impractical genius who is her genuine heart’s desire.

The novel is exceptionally researched.  Its settings, which include the cities of Prague and Venice, sparkle with the energy and exhilaration of the era. It is very much Konstanze’s chronicle of growth, reasonableness and love that makes Mozart’s Wife a pleasurable read from start to finish.
