Abandoned by her parents, young Olga is raised by her grandmother in a Prussian village in the early years of the 20th century. Smart and uncompromising, she fights against ingrained chauvinism to find her place in a world run by lesser men, but when Olga falls in love with her aristocratic neighbor, Herbert, her life is irremediably changed. While Herbert indulges his thirst for exploration and adventure, Olga is limited by her gender and circumstance, loving him from afar. Unfolding across decades and continents, this novel by the author of The Reader traces the thoughts and feelings of a remarkable woman, as her life converges on a fateful moment of great rebellion.
