I have only just started this book about 100 or so pages in (thats why ive only given it 3stars so far) I purchased this novel as I was taking a trip to Salzburg,Austria & had read a review about this famous austrian author who committed sucide in the 40's-driven out of his native land by Nazis. The novel is a re-telling of the cinderella story (slightly more depressing) about a young austrian woman trapped in a life of poverty after the first world war. I fell in love with Austrian as a country, the austrian people are wonderful so i can understand why Herr Zweig would have been torn at fleeing this beautiful country. (Things were very different after both the first and 2nd world wars) so far I am enjoying it- just need the time to sit down and read!
