Julie  Hilgenberg - The Brittle Girl


A young woman with brittle bone disease, love at second sight and the threat of World War I

Berlin, 1913. Elisa has the very rare and little researched brittle bone disease, which is why she seldom leaves her protective home. Louis is a daredevil and loves risks. Initially the marriage their parents have arranged for them seems to be a punishment, especially as Elisa is in love with her doctor, Wilhelm.

But while World War One is looming on the horizon, Elisa and Louis get closer. When both Louis and Wilhelm are eventually called up, it becomes clear how strong Elisa really is – and she finds out what true love really means.

"One of the most beautiful and sensitive books I've read in a long time. Absolute recommendation!"
