Let s raise our glasses to Alma Maria Schindler Fran Zuckerandl said who has turned the rest of us poor women emerald with envy Not only is she the most beautiful girl in Vienna and that s uite bad enough she s also a brilliant pianist That s infuriating But on top of it all she composes Alma s mother was pregnant with Alma before she married her famous painter father Jakob Schindler She tells Alma that she had to get married Alma was in love with a man named Alex Zeminsky a poor man Alma s mother literally forbid her daughter to choose her own husbandshe did everything she could to stop the romance between she and Alex Her mother told Alma about her childhood of poverty and the financial struggles during the early years of marriage to her father Alma was conflicted The pressure of how Alma should live her live was constant Mother had two wishes for Alma 1 that she didn t marry for money without love 2 that she didn t marry for love without money Alma had two wishes for herself1 that she didn t have to sacrifice her art for Love2 that she didn t have to sacrifice love for for art Alma wanted to give herself completely to a man and she wanted to give yourself completely to music She wished to be a composer of the great symphonies She had the talent and practiced diligently At age 19 when Alma received her first kiss by Gustav Klimt it was so passionate physically and soulfully the author did a lovely job conveying this young girls awakening experience of lust passionthat Alma knew that to deny herself a life without love would be as painful as to deny herself with music which was already her lustful passion Having both love and her independence to follow her dreams as a female in the 19th20th century was a complicated matter The man she married Gustav Mahler wanted her to regard his music be his wife but not his colleague He didn t want Alma to be a composer because he was oneAlma knew if she married him and carried on composing behind his back it would still destroy her creative spirit Alma s final thinking before marrying Mahler was is that the only way there was any hope of distinguishing herself and doing anything remarkable at all in life was to marry a great man and share his destiny I WANTED TO DIE AT THIS MOMENT in the novelscream at Alma I saw her spirit breaking understood her thinking but was sad Much storytelling to come and tensions keep building The book is about 400 pages but reading flies by I knew next to nothing about Alma Mahler and her excruciating battles of the times both from society those closest to her I learned a lot and enjoyed the journey I absolutely loved reading this historical novel I was transported back to this period There s interesting history personal storytelling drama passion Love conflicts and the music Just delightful Thank You to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Netgalley and Mary Sharratt

Disclosure I received this book for free from Goodreads Well the cover isn t bad the prelude was good Struggled to get through the 1st chapter Unconsciously started hard skimming the thing somewhere after the middle of the 2nd chapter gave up during the 3rd chapter I set it down after the 1st chapter hoping it would be better when I came back to it but obviously that didn t pan out I hate the protagonist The writing was unclear tedious I also didn t realize I had opened a wordier version of a Harleuin romance I ve no idea where all those stellar reviews are coming from but this wasn t anything like the blurb led me to expect Shame bc the women associated w the great men were usually great in their own right but have been left over looked uncredited I d hoped stories like I thought this was going to be would correct some of that maybe some of them will but unfortunately this book is not one of those storiesespecially if I can t even manage to get through the reading of the thing It s too bad but this was a fail
