Summary

Pride goes before the fall.

1900s Austrian Tyrol. Fritz Hanny, confident and optimistic, enjoys the prestige of belonging to one of the most respected families in the Reschen Valley. When he falls in love with Cecilia, a young girl in a neighboring village, he is certain he has found his purpose in life. Already on his way to making his own fortune, Fritz pursues Cecilia only to be cut down by one external force after another. Disappointment, violence, and conflict turn Fritz into a desperate man. When the Great War ends, Fritz is trapped between two borders: on one side, the family he has. On the other, the family he wants.

This is a stand-alone novella and a prequel to No Man's Land, the first book in the Reschen Valley series.

A fast-paced story

A fast-paced story in which author has adeptly used fictional characters to bring to life an interesting slice of history. Great narration. Readers of Lucyk-Berger's Reschen series will enjoy this story, meeting these characters and getting to know them from this angle, or, working in reverse, listen to this one and then get into series. A great listen.

A riveting read!

I devoured this story in one day. I’m in awe of the research this must have taken but even more by the characters & story which engaged me immediately. The protagonist is in many ways an antihero & at times he challenged me. I found myself talking aloud at him, questioning his choices & attitude. But throughout I was invested in knowing what would become of him. He is an intriguing character. A great story & I’ll be ‘reading’ more of this series. Highly recommended.
