The magic of the novel lies in the authors ability to make the faraway seem familiar, even when it is tragic or brutal.

Structured as short stories told from the viewpoints of different members of the village, the novel follows their intertwined lives from 1909 through 1977, layering story upon story to develop the village and the characters. Lippis characters are nothing short of wonderful. There is, for example, Johanna, whose heart is torn between her love for Francesco--a soldier hiding in the Austrian Alps--and her sister Angelika, who hides her dependence upon Johanna behind not-so-subtle reminders of familial duty.

And there is Katharina, whose impulsiveness causes her to betray her two half-brothers for a ride in a Nazi motorcar, and Stante, who proves his worth not only in the Wainwrights workshop but also by his courage withstanding the Nazis. The character portrayals are based upon Lippis own experiences living in Austria for four years. Youll hate for these stories to end.
