    I really enjoyed this book!  I have always been curious about &q

    I really enjoyed this book!  I have always been curious about "The Red Priest" and LOVE Vivaldi's Four Seasons composition; one of my favorites!  But the backdrop to the story was the big surprise, the Pieta where the two main characters grow up in a cloistered environment and one is trained on the violin and the other as a singer.  Set against the extravagances of Venice and Carnivale, where a master like Vivaldi is forced to travel to earn his keep as a genius composer, and women have little control over their futures, especially if they come from wealthy families.  It was so interesting!  I was also surprised at the religious thread in the story.  The writing is a little slow, but stick with it because the entire story is worth it!

    An excellent read...

    I highly recommend this book to anyone that is interested in the passion that drives people. Whether it is their passion to express themselves in the form of music, or the love they have to share with another which may or may not be consummated as well as the love they share with their sister. Being a sister and understanding the complexities of sisterhood, has only enhanced my reading experience of this book. I found the characters to be compelling and I thought the author brought the music of Venice to life for me.
