In her flowing narrative and with the beautiful, descriptive language the author engages the reader with Katharina, the main character, and other people both Tiroleans and Italians. The conflict is palpable; the stakes are high; the future doesn’t seem bright. Katharina’s confused relationship first with Angelo and then with Florian was so touching, I couldn’t wait to see how these complicated relationships would develop. As a reader, I felt as though I was alongside with them all along their difficult journey (which I’m going to continue through the following books of the series).
Compiled with attention to details, the author presents a meticulously researched historical background.
I highly recommend this story, which I'm sure will captivate you from beginning to end.

The heroine is a feisty character and I felt for her plight when as an innocent, over-protected young woman she ends up having to marry her rescuer (no spoilers).
The descriptions of the beautiful mountains are stunning.
I'd have given the book 5 stars but I felt cheated with the ending. I was left in mid-air and annoyed when I realised I have to buy the next book to find out what happens next.
I have to eat my words now and say that I have now bought the box set and will be able to read the other parts. I will review it asap. Thanks for the offer.
What a great story! This book is a long way from the usual genre that I read but it captivated me from the moment that I started it. Several stories - the two main ones of the main characters, as well as secondary stories such as the Tyroleans fight for independence and the fascist's rise to power - intertwine seamlessly and provide a rich, authentic narrative of the times. This book has been very well researched and is full of details, although this does not detract from the story and only adds to it.
I would highly recommend this book although be warned - it is addictive and is not a stand alone story, it leaves you hanging for the next book! I look forward to the next one.
in Bolzano you can touch the air of fear, revolution, military ordung, discrimation, strategy and politic projects.
but the book is also a romantic story, I suggest you to read it, you'll love it.
No Man's Land is the story of a young woman, Katharina, living in the Reschen Valley with her grandfather. Illness and war have taken the rest of her family away. She falls in love with an injured stranger, Angelo, whom she has taken in to her home in order to nurse him to health. She must keep this a secret from the rest of the community, who are all quite set in their ways.
Written in an elegant style, it is a compelling story that makes me want to know not only what happens to the young woman, her secret lover, and the local community, but also what is going on the tumultuous interwar period in Europe. An entertaining read that will enlighten you about a period of history that is often glossed over.
