When Kerstin Lieff was going through her German-American mother Margarete's effects following her death, she came upon an extraordinary collection of letters written by her mother during the final days of World War II when, as a nineteen year-old, she was working as a nurse in the besieged city of Berlin. They were love letters addressed to a young soldier at the front. Filled with Margarete's longing and hope in the face of disaster, these poignant letters were never mailed because the postal service was no longer functioning and she had no idea by then where her lover was, or whether he was even still alive. Her letters form a coda to a book that provides an unusual picture of coming of age in wartime Germany, and in the terrible aftermath of the war. Drawing on hundreds of hours of taped interviews with her mother, Kerstin Lieff has recreated Margarete's story from her childhood and her child's eye view of the rise and fall of the Reich through the family's increasingly desperate circumstances as the war neared its end. In the final days, as the Russians moved towards Berlin, there were terrible rumours and fears. When the war ended, Margarete and her mother found themselves on a train which they believed was headed for freedom, but instead, after a long, gruelling journey, took them into the heart of Russia and, finally, to a Gulag, where they were to spend two dreadful years before finally returning to a Berlin that was no longer home to them.

The Tania Blanchard Collection features three blockbuster titles from Tania Blanchard, Australia's bestselling author of The Girl from Munich! For fans of Fiona McIntosh, Heather Morris and Judy Nunn. The Girl From Munich 1943 ... The choices she makes will change her life forever. Growing up in Hitler’s Germany, Charlotte von Klein has big dreams for the future. Her mind is full of plans for a sumptuous wedding to her childhood sweetheart Heinrich while working for the Luftwaffe, proudly giving her all for the Fatherland. But in 1943, the tide of the war is turning against Germany, and Lotte’s life of privilege and comfort begins to collapse around her. As Hitler’s Reich abandons Germany and the country falls to the Allied forces, Lotte is forced to flee from the unfolding chaos to the country with the darkly attractive Erich Drescher, her Luftwaffe superior. Amid the danger, pain and heartbreak, Lotte must forge a new life for herself. But as the country struggles to find its future, shadows of the past come rushing back and Lotte finds herself questioning everything she has fought for – love, duty and freedom. Suitcase of Dreams After enduring the horror of Nazi Germany and the chaos of postwar occupation, Lotte Drescher and her family arrive in Australia in 1956 full of hope for a new life. It’s a land of opportunity, where Lotte and her husband Erich dream of giving their children the future they have always wanted. After years of struggling to find their feet as New Australians, Erich turns his skill as a wood carver into a successful business and Lotte makes a career out of her lifelong passion, photography. The sacrifices they have made finally seem worth it until Erich’s role in the trade union movement threatens to have him branded a communist and endanger their family. Then darker shadows of the past reach out to them from Germany, a world and a lifetime away. As the Vietnam War looms, an unexpected visitor forces Lotte to a turning point. Her decision will change her life forever . . . and will finally show her the true meaning of home.
