IT IS AN UNLIKELY FRIENDSHIP
Amy Campion is the beautiful but naive daughter of an English country vicar, Claudia Farnholz an aspiring German actress – flamboyant, precocious, down on her luck. Their friendship is forged in the turmoil of Berlin in the wake of World War One.
The relationship will survive pain and separation, rivalries and resentments, even the vicissitudes of their love for the same man. Through the louche and precarious years of the notorious Weimar republic, the rise of the Nazi Reich, the Second World War and its desolate aftermath, the two women remain bound by a dark secret that brings them both anguish and joy.About the Author:
After taking a Modern Languages degree at Oxford, Elizabeth James taught at various schools and also worked with children with special needs. She then ran a bookshop with her husband but since 1987 has been writing full time.
