Lori GrahamNancy Moser has chosen to write Mozart’s Sister in the first person and I often felt as if I was sitting and talking with Nannerl as opposed to simply reading about her life. Nancy is very clear in the book that she has attempted to use fact wherever possible but where there were blank spots she took some liberty to fill that portion in while trying to think as Nannerl would. I believe she has captured the essence of this young woman who for most of her life felt she lived in the background and was virtually unseen. However, in the end, Nannerl does realize she made a difference - one that only she could make.
I love historical books along this vein. ... when you take history in the vein of a person’s perspective, it comes to life and teaches. I found her historical references to be right on the mark and while this is so, I also found the words to be full of life. The emotions expressed in this remarkable story were real and could be felt by the reader just as if they were walking alongside Nannerl.
