January 2018 FREE BOOK!

During all the commotion of the Holiday Season, I did manage to get a few books read. MARRYING MOZART by Stephanie Cowell was one of them. I immediately knew it was a book I wanted to share with all of you, and what better way to share than to include it in the 2018 Free Books? Our free copy is a hardcover edition, brand new.

From the cover flap copy: “Mannheim, 1777. The four Weber sisters, daughters of a musical family, share a crowded artistic life in a ramshackle house. The sisters struggle with [their] marriage prospects as well as their musical futures — until one evening when twenty-one-year-old Wolfgang Mozart walks into their home and their lives. Eighteenth-century Europe comes alive with unforgiving winters and yawning princes, scheming parents and the enduring passions of young talent.”

This is a magical book, beautifully written, and well researched. I think you’ll enjoy it from the first page to its surprising (and true) conclusion.

To have your name included in our Wednesday, January 10 drawing, answer this question: What is your favorite type of music, or do you have more than one?

    Many different music “favs,” but only classical music can move me to tears.

  2. I definitely like all kinds of music, from music like Mozart and Beethoven, to Native American chimes and flutes, to musicals, to Adele, or to rock like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and U2, I just love music. Further, I really love books that feature women in the lives of famous musicians, artists, writers, etc.

    Have a good weekend, hope you aren’t too covered in snow. No school here for tomorrow!

    I love so many types of music it is hard to pick one but… I am so excited about the Northern Michigan Indy Folk Rock scene that is happening right now. So much great music from so many talented new artists! ✌🏻️❤️🎶

    Hello, dear Sue,
    This looks as if it is a great read. I really must read more novels this year if I can.
    Music? It’s easier to say what I don’t like … heavy metal and rap would top that short list. I enjoy worship music and orchestral classical music and oldies music from the 70s and 80s – and so much more, depending on what suits my mood at the time.

    Sending love from Canada.
