Publisher's Summary

A stirring and romantic historical novel about nineteenth-century Vienna and the tragedy and dynamic passion that inspired Ludwig van Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata.

Vienna, 1800. Countess Julie Guicciardi's life is about to change forever. The spirited eighteen-year-old is taking piano lessons with Ludwig van Beethoven, the most talented piano virtuoso in the musical capital of Europe. She is captivated by his volatile genius, while he is drawn to her curiosity and disarming candor. Between them, a unique romance. But Beethoven has a secret he's yet to share, and Julie is harboring a secret of her own, one so scandalous it could destroy their perfect love story.

When Beethoven discovers the truth, he sets his emotions to music, composing a mournful opus that will become the Moonlight Sonata. The haunting refrain will follow Julie for the rest of her life.

Set against the rich backdrop of nineteenth-century Vienna, The Woman in the Moonlight is an exhilarating ode to eternal passion. An epic tale of love, loss, rivalry, and political intrigue. A stirring portrait of a titan who wrestled with the gods and a woman who defied convention to inspire him.

Awesome Presention

I laughed, I cried, I totally enjoyed this story. The story was so real, the research for this story was so good and the imagination of putting this story together was superb. The narration by Angela Dawe was supportive to the story, all the different dialects were so good. One felt they were there. I do appreciate Chapter 42, telling the end of the story. Chapter 43, telling about the author,her research.. A really really good book!

Good Story

I love historical fiction that comes alive. A really good story. Just one tiny thing... someone should have corrected the narrator's pronunciation of "Joachim." She pronounced it "Joe-a-keem" throughout the book. 😶

Great!

The narration was great. The story is wonderful! Beethoven has always been my favorite and I've never read anything about Beethoven. Although historical fiction, i thought the depiction of Beethoven was sooo funny, and his nicknanes for funny was hilarious! Loved it! well done!
