Birgit  Reinshagen - Years of Wonder – Dawn of a New Era


Spring is in the air

Wilmersbach in Vulkaneifel, 1952. Among the volcanic landscape's woods, meadows and lakes, young Ruth Thelen is living an idyllic life. It is a time of restoration: her father's quarry seems to be flourishing in the new German republic, and self-assured Ruth is excited by everything new. She has no interest in men who are looking to marry a mere housewife.

One day, she spots a climber at the quarry, and her heart beats faster. Paul is different from all the other men in Ruth's life. But then Ruth's father suddenly dies, and secrets come to light that threaten the future of the business. Yet Ruth doesn't let this keep her from taking over the quarry's management, and she's determined to make a success of it. If only there wasn't an unexpected visit from her past, which ends up threatening her happiness…

A gripping novel about a young woman in post-war Germany, who produces her very own economic miracle
