The Munich Girl –

A novel of the legacies that outlast war

Anna Dahlberg grew up eating dinner under her father’s war-trophy portrait of Eva Braun.

Fifty years after the war, she discovers what he never did—that her mother and Hitler’s mistress were friends.

The secret surfaces with a mysterious monogrammed handkerchief, and a man, Hannes Ritter, whose Third Reich family history is entwined with Anna’s.

Plunged into the world of the Munich girl who became her mother’s confidante—and a tyrant’s lover—Anna retraces the friendship forged by two lonely women in Nazi Germany, even though the men they loved had opposing ambitions.

EBmem9ivgqZ_DGGHKgWhco68gWhen Anna’s journey uncovers long-buried secrets, and unknown reaches of her heart, it will reveal the enduring power of love in the legacies that outlast war.
