About this book
A 1930s tale of the boom and bust of capitalism. A young Austrian woman is invited by her aunt to join her in America.
A young Austrian woman, Christine, toils away in a provincial post office when, out of the blue, a telegram arrives inviting her to join an American aunt she's never known in a fashionable Swiss resort. She accepts and is swept up into a world of almost inconceivable wealth and unleashed desire. She feels herself utterly transformed.
