Beate Teresa  Hanika - On the End of a Long Summer


They are mother and daughter. They are strangers and yet they have more in common than they suspect.

Marielle lives in Amsterdam as a sculptor. On one of the first spring days the forty-year-old returns home from the Bloemenmarkt with a huge bunch of red and pale pink tulips and finds at her front door a parcel tied up with string – old fashioned and mysterious. Inside: diaries of her recently deceased mother, Franka. Her entire life, Marielle saw her mother as proud and aloof, a stranger who never understood her.

She now starts reading – of that long summer in 1944 that Franka spent on an estate in Tuscany; of an encounter that changed the life of the young woman forever. And of a calamity the results of which seem to be leaving their mark down the generations.
