JOY...READ. THIS. BOOK. If you want to understand what it was really like to live under the Nazis...not yet another fictional black and white account.

This is real.

The world of chic Vienna is so well conveyed and with charm and grace...elegant prose... and we see and imagine the life Trudi had..and it is fun to read. Yes. Fun.

Then, all gets turned around but instead of writers who use hindsight...we wee how Trudi fights back for her business and her family and people do help her...it is remarkable.

She survives but so often by sheer chance.. that no fiction writer could come up with...and the love story is desperately moving.

I read this in two days and she's still in my head.
Glorious.
