Editorial Reviews

Review

Named a "Must-Read" book by The New York Post

"Mary Sharratt has made an impressive career fleshing out the lives of women rendered one-dimensional in the pages of history...With this fine work, [Sharratt] has us wanting more."—Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Alma Mahler is certainly worthy of joining the remarkable women about whom Sharratt has previously written."—St. Paul Pioneer Press

“This winning historical novel offers an enjoyable portrait of an ambitious woman whose struggles are as relevant today as they were a century ago.”—Publishers Weekly

“[Sharratt] has in-depth knowledge of classical music and turn-of-the-20th-century Vienna…Recommended for readers who like the peaks and valleys of nonstop drama.”—Library Journal
 
“Thought-provoking [and]…bracing.”Kirkus

"A novel with surefire appeal for fans of romantic women’s fiction."Booklist

“Terrific…An intimate, absorbing portrait of a complicated woman whose talents and passions propelled her to the center of fin de siècle Vienna.”
Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times best-selling author of Orphan Train and A Piece of the World

“In Ecstasy, Mary Sharratt plunges the reader into the tumultuous and glamorous fin de siècle era, bringing to life its brilliant and beguiling leading lady. Finally, Alma Mahler takes center stage, surging to life as so much more than simply the female companion to the brilliant and famous men who loved her. Sharratt's portrait is poignant and nuanced, her novel brimming with rich historic detail and lush, evocative language.”
Allison Pataki, New York Times best-selling author of The Accidental Empress

"Sharratt has composed a passionate symphony for Alma Mahler, a woman who was more than a muse to the greats. She was also a talent in her own right, stifled by society and the passions of the many men who pursued her. This heartfelt, feminist tribute makes for a compelling and sophisticated tale!"
Stephanie Dray, New York Times best-selling author of America's First Daughter

“Evocative and passionate, Ecstasy illuminates through its tempestuous and talented heroine a conundrum that resonates across the centuries: how a woman can fulfill her destiny by being both a lover and an artist.”
Jenna Blum, New York Times best-selling author of Those Who Save Us and The Stormchasers

“A tender, intimate exploration of a complicated woman, Mary Sharratt’s Ecstasy renders in exquisitely researched detail and fiercely imagined scenes the life of Alma Mahler — daughter, wife, mother, lover, and composer — and the early 20th Century Vienna and New York in which she came of age. I loved this inspiring story of an early feminist standing up for her art.”
Meg Waite Clayton, New York Times best-selling author of The Race for Paris

“Alma Mahler’s unexpected, often heartbreaking journey from muse to independence comes to vivid, dramatic life. Sharratt skillfully evokes turn-of-the-century Vienna and the musical genius of the era, returning Alma to her rightful place in history as both the inspiration to the men in her life and a gifted artist in her own right.”
C.W. Gortner, best-selling author of Mademoiselle Chanel 

“Mary Sharratt has more than done justice to one of the most interesting, shocking, and passionate women of the 20th century. Overflowing with life and lust, Ecstasy explores this flawed but fascinating woman.”
M.J. Rose. New York Times best-selling author of The Library of Light and Shadow

“A deeply affecting portrait of the woman rumored to be the most notorious femme fatale of turn-of-the-century Vienna. Mary Sharratt’s Ecstasy is as heartbreaking and seductive as Alma Mahler herself.”
Kris Waldherr, author of Doomed Queens and Bad Princess
