Synopsis: Anna Bishop, the rebellious wife of the English Mozart, Henry Bishop, eloped in 1839 with the dissolute French harpist Nicholas Bochsa and began an adventure lasting forty years. She and her lover survived snow and jungle, shipwreck and impassable mountains, bandits, cholera outbreaks and civil wars. She sang in the great opera houses and in makeshift venues in the outposts of civilisation. Hers was a life that cannot even be imagined today. Extensively researched and generously illustrated the book is introduced by Richard Boynge.
