Petra  Durst-Benning - The Photographer – At the Beginning of the Road


Against all odds, Mimi becomes a photographer and finds not only her freedom but also the road to love …

Minna Reventlow, otherwise known as Mimi, has always been different from other women of her time. The year is 1911, and while other women are involved in their families and households, Mimi makes her dream come true. She travels around the country as a photographer and with her pictures loves giving people beauty, just like her uncle Josef, her big hero.

When Josef is taken ill, Mimi moves to the tiny linen-weaving village to take care of him and temporarily take charge of his photography studio. For his sake she not only gives up her freedom but exposes herself to the villagers' distrust. And when before long a man makes Mimi's heart beat just that little bit faster she has to make a decision …

For the readers of Jeffrey Archer's Clifton Chronicles.

"Though Minna Reventlow is fictional, she could easily serve as the prototype of the strong woman at the beginning of the 20th century."
