Join author David R. Gillham as he discusses his novel of a woman struggling through the chaos of Berlin in World War II tonight at the Ivy Bookshop at 7 p.m. The event is part of the Baltimore Fishbowl and Ivy Bookshop series, The Front Table, which features well-regarded authors and books found on the “front table” of the shop.
About the Book:
It is 1943 – the height of the Second World War. With the men away at the front, Berlin has become a city of women.
On the surface, Sigrid Schroder is the model German soldier’s wife: She goes to work every day, does as much with her rations as she can and dutifully cares for her meddling mother-in-law, all the while ignoring the horrific immoralities of the regime.
But behind this facade is an entirely different Sigrid, a woman of passion who dreams of her former Jewish lover, now lost in the chaos of the war. But Sigrid is not the only one with secrets – she soon finds herself caught between what is right and what is wrong, and what falls somewhere in the shadows between the two.
