Paperback / softback

Description

THE #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER'Bernhard Schlink speaks straight to the heart' New York TimesOlga is an orphan raised by her grandmother in a Prussian village around the turn of the 20th century.

Smart and precocious, she fights against the prejudices of the time to find her place in a world that sees her as second-best. When she falls in love with Herbert, a local aristocrat obsessed with the era's dreams of power, glory and greatness, her life is irremediably changed. Theirs is a love against all odds, entwined with the twisting paths of German history, leading us from the late 19th to the early 21st century, from Germany to Africa and the Arctic, from the Baltic Sea to the German south-west. This is the story of that love, of Olga's devotion to a restless man - told in thought, letters and in a fateful moment of great rebellion.
