From the bestselling author of The Girl from Munich
After enduring the horror and chaos of postwar Germany, Lotte Drescher and her family arrive in Australia full of hope for a new life. It’s a land of opportunity, where Lotte and husband Erich hope to give their children the future they have always dreamed of.
After years of struggling to find their feet as `New Australians’, Erich turns his skill as a wood carver into a successful business and Lotte makes a career out of her lifelong passion, photography. The sacrifices they have made finally seem worth it until Erich’s role in the trade union movement threatens to have him branded a communist and endanger their family.
As the shadow of the Vietnam War looms, the unexpected arrival of her former fiance Heinrich forces Lotte to a turning point.
Her decision will change her life forever – and to finally understand the true meaning of home.
