An idyllic childhood in Lausitz on the eve of WorldWar II, Berlin of the golden twenties, the great love: this could be happiness, Helene thinks. But does the world really lie at her feet?

Then, the Second Great War takes place, hopes, loneliness and the knowledge that everything can be lost. Julia Franck tells in her great new novel a story of a life of a fascinating woman in the struggle with a dreadful century.
