    Throughout Maya Angelou's life, from her childhood in Stamps, Arkansas, to her world travels as a best-selling writer, good food has played a central role. Preparing and enjoying homemade meals provides a sense of purpose and calm, accomplishment, and connection. Now in Hallelujah! The Welcome Table, Angelou shares memories pithy and poignant, and the recipes that helped to make them both indelible and irreplaceable.

    I usually "hear" Maya's voice when I read her work, but nothing beats actually listening to her. The "histories" to the recipes are great. "Light" but Pure Maya.

    Story

    Mozart's wife aroused strong feelings among her contemporaries. Her in-laws loathed her. Mozart's friends, more than 40 after his death, remained eager to gossip about her "failures" as wife to the world's first superstar. Maturing from child to wife to hard-headed widow, Konstanze paid her husband's debts, provided for their children, and relentlessly marketed and mythologized her brilliant husband.

    Catherine says: "Mozart's Wife a powerful story"
    "Fascinating and well researched"
    Overall

    This book held my attention for the entire time--I also found myself researching items presented on the internet-- to learn more about the time period. This was my first historical fiction and I will be looking for more to listen to.
