The Mozart Conspiracy Theresa Schurman #2

Oughout the Vienna of Haydn and Mozart When she stumbles on a murder on her way home from one of her gigs in disguise she becomes involved in a complex conspiracy that rocks the musical world With the help of her captivating friend the Gypsy Mirela she struggles to tie all the complex thr. This book begins with the apparent murder of a man dressed as a musician and carrying an instrument His murder is witnessed by Theresa a young girl hiding in the tree from what she thought may be an attempt to accost herhim She is dressed as a male in order to play her violin at balls and concerts in Vienna It is the late 1700 s and no females are allowed to play an instrument except in her home or at social gatherings but no in orchestrasWithin the first three chapters one sees the role a female was expected to play in these times and of course Theresa does not conform to this role Well of course she would not if she dresses as a male in order to play her beloved Amati violin The other very glaring reality of these times is the treatment of the Jewish people and the stiff fines levied against them Antisemitism was definitely in force in Vienna and most probably in all of AustriaWith all the twists and turns I never did figure out what was going on until the author ties it all together The story takes you into many parts of Vienna and into homes of both the wealthy and and those of lesser influence What I can say is Theresa though a young girl is smart clever and stubborn or perhaps really determined She does not believe anything that she herself has not checked out or has uncovered I was so impressed with her tenacity and compassion even her relationship with her mother is a forgiving oneI was also glad that what appeared to happen at the beginning was not fatal and that a full recovery is apparent I did not realize this was one in a series although it is clearly stated as the second book when I looked again so I can only wonder what escapades Theresa will get into in the next novel I would be remiss if I did not mention that I loved the ending Woman s lib was alive back then too even though not many knew about Theresa s achievement To know what I mean you will have to just read this book and celebrate along with meI received a complimentary copy of this book from BooksGoSocial through NetGalley All opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own
