WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Set in 17th century Bologna and based on the life of Lucrezia Vizzana, Jeanne Marshall's Rapture is the heartbreaking story of an extraordinarily talented composer who, as a child, is sent to live in a convent. Her aunts, nuns in the same convent, encourage her musical gifts, breaking the Vatican's rules by finding a male instructor to teach her. When they are discovered, Lucrezia's music and her family become pawns in a political struggle for control of the convent.
