Micaela  Jary - The House on the Banks of the Alster


A poignant journey back in time to the age of the big merchant and shipping families

Hamburg 1911. It is only very unwillingly that widowed ship-owner Victor Dornhain agrees to the marriage of his daughter Lavinia to architect Konrad Michaelis. No one in the family suspects that painter Nele, Lavinia's sister, loves her brother-in-law.

About this time, 16-year-old Klara is taken on as a housemaid in the Dornhain household. Only Victor Dornhain and his mother, Charlotte, know that Klara is his illegitimate child.

Three years later, the Great War breaks out and changes everything: Klara sets out to find the parents she does not know, and for the ship-owner the fate of his family becomes a matter of survival…

"A family novel for devouring."
