Germany, 1943. The choices she makes will change her life forever.

Growing up in Hitler’s Germany, Charlotte von Klein has big dreams for the future. Her mind is full of plans for a sumptuous wedding to her childhood sweetheart Heinrich while working for the Luftwaffe, proudly giving her all for the Fatherland.

But in 1943, the tide of the war is turning against Germany, and Lotte’s life of privilege and comfort begins to collapsing around her. As Hitler’s Reich abandons Germany and the country falls to the Allied forces, Lotte is forced to flee from the unfolding chaos to the country with the darkly attractive Erich Drescher, her Luftwaffe superior.

Amid the danger, pain and heartbreak of a country turning on itself, Lotte must forge a new life for herself. But as the country struggles to find its future, shadows of the past come rushing back and Lotte finds herself questioning everything she has fought for - love, duty and freedom.

A sweeping tale of love and loss in wartime Germany, inspired by a true story.

About the Author

Tania lives in Sydney with her husband and three children. Coming from a family with rich cultural heritage with a German mother and Italian father, stories have always been in her blood. Following a career in physiotherapy, it was only when she had her family that she decided to return to her passion of writing. Her debut novel is The Girl from Munich, the story she has always wanted to write, inspired by the fascinating stories told by her German grandmother, and she is currently working on the sequel, set in Australia in the 1950s.

Tania is excited to have found her light bulb moment, her love for writing historical fiction. She looks forward to delving further into her interests of history and family stories to enrich and bring to life the many ideas inspired by the amazing tales she has gathered over the years.

Waste of time

This must be one of the worst books I have ever read. Lent to me by a friend, I thought I better give it a go. What a waste of my time! The writing style is just awful, the story is utterly predictable and not engaging at all, the characters are stereotype and flat and surely no-one believes the portray of the "naive" heroine who didn't have a clue of what was going on in WWII-Germany. And - being a German - I cringed every time a German word was used. You don't have to have German as your mother tongue to be able to at least spell check the words you throw in, let alone check the use of upper and lower case in German. For anyone who is interested: there is definetely NO "Umlaut" in the word "Frau"! If the author intended to make the writing look more authentic using German words, well, it did not work. You'd think the editor or publisher would have picked these mistakes up, but clearly that wasn't a priority. Best to read something else!

It is refreshing to read a book from the other side of the fence.
