My friend and fellow author G.G. Vandagriff is having a contest that involves books AND chocolate! What could be better? Go to her website for the details on the contest. wwww.ggvandagriffblog.com for the contest.
And here's more about the book: This historical epic recounts the life of a Viennese woman who would be extraordinary in any age. Born a middle-class Fraulein, Amalia Faulhaber has ties to both socialism and the aristocracy, rendering her an ethereal beauty with a tough political conscience. Through her singular vision and that of the men in her life—a Prussian soldier, a Polish doctor, and an Austrian Baron--we experience the darkest of wars followed by Austria's little known struggle to become a democracy. In an atmosphere rich in the Austrian Zeitgeist, the heroine's relationship with each man chronicles Austria's schizophrenia and fatal rush into the arms of Hitler.
