Enjoy old world charm combined with country hospitality for an unforgettable experience when you meet Orange-based best-selling author Kelly Rimmer for morning tea at the wonderful Montrose House in Canowindra next month.
Kelly’s latest book The German Wife is described as “a heart stopping rendering of the war that will captivate readers page by page”.
Berlin, 1934. Sofie Rhodes is the aristocratic wife of a scientist whose post-WWI fortunes change for the better when her husband, Jurgen, is recruited for Hitler’s new rocket project. But too late they realise the Nazis’ plans to weaponize Jurgen’s technology as they begin to wage war against the rest of Europe.
Alabama, 1949. Jurgen is one of hundreds of Nazi scientists offered pardons and taken to the US to work for the CIA’s fledgling space program. Sofie, now the mother of four, misses Germany terribly and struggles to fit in among the other NASA wives. In a moment of loneliness, she confesses to a neighbour, Avril Walters, about Jurgen’s membership in the SS.
When the scandalous news about the Rhodes family’s affiliation with the Nazi party spreads, idle gossip turns to bitter rage, and the act of violence that results will tear apart a community and a family before the truth is finally revealed – but is it murder, revenge or justice?
