No Man's Land (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 16, 2018 07:18AM
Description: She wants her home. He wants control. The Fascist regime wants both. It’s 1920. The end of the Great War has taken more than Katharina Thaler’s beloved family; it has robbed the Austrian Tyrol of its autonomy and severed it in half. As her grandfather’s last living relative, Katharina also faces becoming the first woman to own a farm in the Reschen Valley. While her countrymen fight to prevent the annexation to Italy, Katharina stumbles on a wounded Italian engineer on her mountain. Her decision to save Angelo Grimani’s life thrusts both into a labyrinth of corruption, prejudice, and greed. Trapped between a new world order and the man who threatens to seize her land, Katharina must decide what to protect: love or country?
