You can tell this novel is well loved. I first read it in middle school when I found it at the library. A few years later I got the opportunity to buy it. I’ve reread it more times than I can count. It’s based on the true story of the romance between composer Robert Schumann and pianist Clara Wieck.
I love this lush historical novel by Sherry Jones.
In a cool, inconvenient marriage,
the wedding vows thatch the roof.
Rain makes itself at home anyway.
The bride drinks.
a torrent ready to swallow them.
