As a musicologist and biographer of Clara Schumann, I was amazed at the accuracy of Galloway's novel She has done her homework: She has read most of the recent scholarly books (which she acknowledges) on Robert and Clara Schumann; she has visited Germany to, see for herself the places portrayed; she is well acquainted with the language; the names of family members, friends, and acquaintances are genuine; she describes, with acumen, musicians such as Felix Mendelssohn, Fanny Hensel (Felix's sister), Franz Liszt, Joseph Joachim, Johannes Brahms, and Richard Wagner, who were dose friends or colleagues of the Schumanns; and she knows the music performed and composed by Clara and her husband.
