Bastian  Zach, Matthias  Bauer - Tears of the Earth


Divided by religion – united in crime: two families having to confront fate

The Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, anno Domini 1606. The cloud of the impending Thirty Years' War is lying like a burial shroud on the empire.

There are two families living in the free imperial town of Schwäbischwerd who are close friends. The Catholic Heidfeldts and the Protestant Ackermanns seem to share everything: business, wealth and love. They are powerful and influential, yet at the same time they are being threatened by people who begrudge them their status and want to cause their downfall in the emerging religious dispute. Nobody suspects that it was betrayal that laid the foundation stone of their wealth.

While the storms of war are looming on the horizon, the two families become entangled in a web of intrigue, power and passion …

A major German family saga set in the Thirty Years' War.
