Laurel Corona's The Four Seasons is a poignant tale of two sisters, layered exquisitely over the exotic world of brilliant priest/composer Vivaldi and his 18th-century Venice. The result: a vibrant crescendo of hearts and history. -Karen Harper, author of The Last Boleyn and The First Princess of Wales. I've never been to Venice, played a violin, or for that matter carried a tune, but after reading The Four Seasons I feel that I've experienced all three, and through them come to a better understanding of the many forms love takes. Brava, Laurel Corona.

Laurel Corona's "The Four Seasons" tells the story of two orphaned girls who are brought up in a cloistered girls only home/school in 18th century Venice. Love Venice and Vivaldi, but was extremely disappointed in the book. The specialty of the school is music-and when Vivaldi, the great 18th Century composer-shows up at the school and recognizes the girls' talents, their worlds are turned upside down. The novel follows the girls for almost 40 years as their lives change and intersect with Vivaldi's. Corona's story is interesting, but underdeveloped. I had hoped the book focused on Vivaldi and on di coro del Pieta, but instead it focused on two orphaned sisters, Maddalena and Chiaretta.
