Voice of Destiny

Voice of Destiny

A novel by

Lucia Visconti is feted in opera houses around the world. But it has been a long and arduous journey to the top and her personal life is a disaster ...

Born to an Australian father and Italian mother in the Mallee country in the 1920s, Lucia is taken to Italy by her mother shortly before World War II. Trained at the word-famous Toscanini Conservatorium, she survives the horrors of war to become the world's greatest dramatic soprano.

But she quarrels with her domineering mother, and spends years separated from her true love, while accusations of wartime collaboration threaten to destroy her reputation.

It is only when she discovers the love she can truly give to others that Lucia is able to come to terms with her own past.

Inspired by the lives of great singers such as Maria Callas, in a superb piece of storytelling Voice of Destiny lays bare what it means to be a woman and an artist in a world in conflict.
