Description

This work is set in Austria, 1938. Anne von Korvacs watches in horror as Hitler's tanks roll through the streets of Vienna, amid crowds of cheering supporters. Her embittered ex-husband, now a fervent supporter of the Reich, is among the cavalcade - he is burning with hatred for Anne, seeing her as a symbol of the old Austrian empire he once served. A chance encounter with a British journalist leaves Anne with a secret microfilm that must be smuggled out of the country, and Anne knows that she must forsake her beloved Vienna and with her children flee to Britain. In a thrilling journey that will separate sisters and brothers, parents and children, Anne and her family escape to freedom, to dream of a reunion in far-away London. Mary Jane Staples introduces a cast of gloriously warm characters in this wartime romantic adventure.show more
