it was amazing

What a fantastic read! Like most historically set mysteries of the 1930s, one will typically expect historically charged content with the horrors of war, but this master pieces turn out to be a book of its own kind.
Elsie has just "began to feel certain stirrings" for a Gunter, a German custodian who seems to be lost in his search for one Liesel Klinkhammer. Liesel is also looking for her love in the USA, one Heinrich Klinkhammer, but she is again seemingly escaping Nazi German persecution following her Epileptic condition. Elsie feels for Gunter and wants to help. While she thinks that looking for Liesel and, in this case, even finding her won't help, she gives in persuading Gunter otherwise and decides to find Liesel with the help of Henrietta and her husband Clive, a Veteran and retired police detective.
Henrietta and Clive have a series of cases to handle, including one concerning a spiritualist woman who is thought of conning people on the other side of the town. They decide to first deal with Elsie's request. What follows is an unforgettable story that will touch your heart and make you believe in love's endurance legacy.
The story cuts across great investigative fiction work and love between Henrietta and Clive and Elsie and Gunter and the lost child Anna. This is simply a fantastic work of fiction; Michelle Cox thoroughly captures the readers' attention throughout the story. In the end, I felt like this was a true story, but it is a work of fiction. Michelle Cox makes it feel so real!
