My novels



Ironically, Désirée, who left her family and home behind many years ago and celebrates a scandalous career as a saxophonist in London, inherits her parents' home after the death of her mother, Maria Goldinger. The Last will forces her back home, where she meets her five-year-older sister Lara. An encounter that is anything but harmonious. Not only the strange will of the celebrated writer, but also a bewildering manuscript and a mysterious amulet in her estate force the daughters to grapple with their own unpleasant past - and with a repressed chapter of European history that had more impact on their lives than they could ever have guessed. In retrospect, the story of three women unfolds, all dealing with family secrets in their own way. It is also the story of a love wrested from fate, which plunges the following generations into misfortune.
