Description - The Four Seasons by Laurel Corona
Chiaretta and Maddalena are as different as night and day. They were abandoned at birth outside the steps of the Ospedale della Pieta, Venice's world-famous foundling hospital and musical academy. Rebellious Chiaretta develops into a dazzling singer, soon becoming a celebrated soloist. Her more reserved sister takes up the violin and forms a dangerous bond with her instructor, the controversial red-haired priest - and suspected womaniser - Antonio Vivaldi. Based on rich historical research this is a fictionalised account of the lives of two sisters.
