In the time of Mozart and Haydn, the role of women and girls in Vienna, Austria is narrowed to home and family. However, after the death of her father, Theresa takes on the role of copyist to the composer Haydn to solve what she believes is murder. She finds treachery, betrayal, prejudice, and intrigue aplenty, along with love and true friends. This historical mystery, set in the glittering eighteenth century court of Vienna, has a gripping story along with a central character whose problems, though framed in a different time than ours, are still very real today. The Musician’s Daughter was recently featured in the Chapter-A-Day email book club, as the teen pick.
