A #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Born with a gift for music, Nannerl Mozart wishes to be remembered forever. But even as she delights audiences with her masterful playing, her hope of becoming an acclaimed composer is unfulfilled. She is a young woman in 18th-century Europe, and that means composing is forbidden to her. Her tyrannical father insists that she will perform only until she reaches a marriageable age. As Nannerl’s hope grows dimmer with each passing year, the talents of her beloved younger brother, Wolfgang, shine brighter and begin to eclipse her own. Then one day a mysterious stranger from a magical land appears with an irresistible offer: he has the power to make her wish come true — but his help may cost her everything.
