Jutta  Oltmanns - The Lark of the Sky


A lute hiding a secret and a young woman looking for her past

Leer, East Frisia in about 1660: Silvana is dreaming of travelling to France to uncover the secret of the engraving on her lute. She is a wild girl and loves to dance and sing – very much to the sorrow of the Mennonite family she grew up in after her grandfather's death.

When Jakob, the linen trader's son, falls in love with Silvana there is a scandal and an intrigue, after which she flees, making her way to Provence with a troupe of travelling artists. People are enchanted by her as the "Lark of the Sky", and this is the beginning of a new life and a journey into the past. What does the old cliff castle of the masters of Baux have in store for her, and has Jakob really abandoned his love?
