To help her impoverished family, Sophie agrees to marry a wealthy older in far off America. Less than twenty-four hours after she arrives in German’s Mill, Pennsylvania, events have taken a far stranger turn than anything she could have imagined.
Set in Post-Civil-War Pennsylvania, this tale of an arranged marriage is as much family saga as romance. Sophie is a sensitive young woman struggling to make sense of her past and to understand her new homeland. Karl is not only a veteran of the Great War, but scarred by the secret violence of his childhood. How they both learn to trust—and to love—is their unique story.

At the 2001 Virginia Festival of the Book, "Mozart's Wife" won the First Independent eBook Award. The author married her first boyfriend, and stayed that way. She has two princely sons, three princess granddaughters, and four aging, imperious cats. She loves history, and "myth." She also loves music; from opera to rock.
