“Eine Handvoll Gluck is besser als ein Haufen Verstand.”
“A handful of luck is better than a heap of Reason.”
That’s what they said in those days, when situations changed by the ticking of seconds, and the government sought to keep up lies, the time during World War 2.
In the midst of the hard times, there was the friendship of Luise and Jola.
This is a story about growing up into adults, friendships, relationships and loss. Luise and Jola remain friends in spite of differences in character and opinion. It is also about surviving loss and adapting to change. Written in an easy to read style, with beautiful similes, which I read over and over, it is a book that tugs at the heart.
Sadly, I could not find an English version of the book.
The German version can be found here.
