Shortlisted for the 2001 Women's Prize for Fiction

Each life has its place, and every variation ripples the surface of the tiny alpine village called Rosenau.

Be it a mysteriously misaddressed love letter or a girl’s careless delivery of two helpless relatives into Nazi hands, the town’s balance is ever tested, and ever tender. Here is a novel spanning eighty years — years that bring factories and wars, store-bought cheese and city-trained teachers — weaving the fates of the wives, mothers, and daughters in this remote corner of Austria.
