9780862788278: In the Claws of the Eagle (The Louise Trilogy)

Book 3: The Louise trilogy. The year is 1913. The portrait of Louise is now hanging in the home of a Jewish family, the Abrahams, in Vienna. Izaac Abrahams is showing early signs of the talent that will make him a famous violin virtuoso and often practices in front of the picture. After the Anschluss of 1939, Izaac is sent to the Theresienstadt concentration camp and then to Auschwitz. The portrait of Louisa falls into the hands of Erich Hoffman, an SS officer, and seems destined to join the art collection being amassed on the orders of Adolf Hitler. What now for Louise and her portrait? Can Louise save Izaac from the gas chamber and Erich from his Nazism? And what is to be her decision on her own future? Aubrey Flegg's Louise trilogy began with Wings Over Delft, winner of the Bisto Book of the Year Award 2004 and the Reading Association of Ireland Award 2005, and continued with The Rainbow Bridge.

About the Author:

Aubrey Flegg was born in Dublin. His early childhood was spent in County Sligo, Ireland. He went to school in Dublin and later in England. After a spell with a mountain rescue team in Scotland, he returned to Ireland to study geology at Trinity College. He then did geological research in Kenya, before joining the Geological Survey of Ireland in 1968. Aubrey recently took early retirement in order to concentrate on writing. His first book, Katie's War, is about the civil war period in Ireland; it was published in 1997. Katie's War has recently won the Peter Pan Award 2000 -- an award created by IBBY Sweden for a children's book, translated into Swedish, which gives information on another culture. Wings Over Delft, the first book in the Louise trilogy, won the Bisto Book of the Year overall award in 2004.

Review:

'interesting and challenging ... avoids the usual stereotypes' -- Sunday Independent * The Sunday Independent * Robert Dunbars Top 30 Children's Books of the Year 'poignant and humane' -- The Irish Times * The Irish Times * 'By turns joyful and harrowing, this finely written and moving finale to the trilogy contrasts the life-affirming power of music with the destructive forces of prejudice during one of the most troubled periods in modern European history.' -- Bookfest 2006Mary McCarthy, Bookfest
