It may be the Third Reich, but another war is unthinkable, and the girls are having the time of their lives. Aren't they? London, 2006.

The hardest decision she has to make is where to go for brunch - until, that is, events conspire to send her on a quest to discover what really happened to her grandmother in Germany, all those years ago."@en ;
