Waiting On Wednesday

Title: The Musician's Daughter
Author: Susanne Dunlap
Release Date: Jan 5, 2010

Amid the glitter and glamor of musical and court life in 18th century Vienna, fifteen-year-old Theresa Maria Shurman is trying to solve a brutal mystery. Who killed her father, an acclaimed violinist, and stole his valuable Amati violin? When Haydn himself offers her a position as his assistant, it gives Theresa access to life in the palace–and to a world of deceit. Theresa uncovers blackmail and extortion even as she discovers courage and honor in unexpected places: from a Gypsy camp on the banks of the Danube, to the rarefied life of the imperial family. And she feels the stirrings of a first, tentative love for someone who is as deeply involved in the mystery as she is. 

The Musician's Daughter has already been released but I really want this book! It sounds amazing. It also sounds like it has a very independent main character, and is jam packed full of adventure. I can't wait to have the chance to read / review this title. Hopefully I will be able to get this book very soon. It is currently at the top of my Wish List! That cover is also very gorgeous!!
