Publisher's Summary

Eleven-year-old Nannerl is arguably the best keyboard player in all of Europe. Yet, because her six-year-old brother, Wolfie, can play almost as well as she, he receives virtually all the praise and adulation. Traveling far and wide with her family, she and her brother perform before the crowned heads of Europe. Social convention and public clamor relegate her to living life in the shadow of a prodigy. When will Nannerl ever realize her own dreams and aspirations?

What the Critics Say

"Realistic to the point of feeling as if I was almost living with the family, Mozart's Sister highlights the life of Baroness Maria Anna Walburga Ignatia Berchtold zu Sonnenburg who preferred to be known simply as Nannerl Mozart. Written entirely in first person style from Nannerl?s point of view, Mozart's Sister is a fascinating story that takes readers on a behind-the-scenes journey into the life of the Mozart family."

    "Un-listenable"

    I downloaded Mozart's Sister thinking the story sounded very interesting, but I neglected to listen to the sample before purchasing it. I am sorry to say that my wife, her parents, and I preferred hunting around for NPR stations in the rural Midwest on a long car trip to continuing to listen to this book. The writing is very heavy-handed, leaving little to interpretation or imagination. States of mind of the characters are bluntly stated rather than suggested by actions or environment. We got through 20 minutes and turned it off.

    "Just couldn't get into the book."
    What could Nancy Moser have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I enjoyed Moser's book about Martha Washington, but this book was too slow for me.
