Format: Hardcover
This was my favorite of a trilogy written by Sarah Gainham concerning Austria under Hitler. It is also the first book in the trilogy. Entering the fictional but authentic world of Viennese theater people, we see the impact of the Anschluss on unexceptional citizens. A non-Jewish actress with a Jewish husband struggles to cope with all the pressures and threats surrounding her because of history and politics. The reader also learns much about the Austrian theater world. I would like to see the trilogy reprinted for a new generation of readers. Do you think we could get Oprah to consider it as a selection? P.S. I have no connection to author or publisher--just remember this book as one that really made an impact on me.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I wholeheartedly agree with the only other reviewer so far and urge others to support this great novel. The actress hiding her husband from the Nazis in WWII Vienna is a memorable, dynamic character. The intense and oppressive attmosphere of an occupied city makes the whole book come alive. This is a novel to savor.

I read this 30 years ago and liked the following two novels. This is the best of the trilogy with a phenominal story of a gentile actress trying to protect her Jewish husband during the Nazi era. Exceptional characters through to the Soviet army invasion and rape of Vienna - I reread it and passed it on to friends until I lost all three books and now want to add them to my retirement library. Highly recommended historical novel.

This story is so well written. I was absorbed into the conversations; as if I was in the room with the interesting characters. The changes that take place in the lives of the characters and the desperate situations that arise are so expertly portrayed.
