Teaser Tuesday: Lizzi & Fredl, A Perilous Journey of Love and Faith



"What's wrong?" Fredl asked, alarmed.

"I don't know, but something bad is going to happen. I can feel it in my bones. We have to leave right now!"

p. 19, Lizzi & Fredl, a biography by William B. Stanford.

Who and where am I? A young couple, master jeweler Fredl and dressmaker Lizzi, in Austria in 1938 decide to leave their home country for France, frightened by the "spreading threat of Nazism." Will France prove to be the safe haven they envision?

  10. I have trouble reading Nazi-era lit, especially the true stuff. It makes my blood boil that people had to live in terror like that. What a nightmare. Great teaser! Here's mine.

  13. Great, suspenseful teaser! And very unnerving, thinking of all the things that could go wrong for them. Because if there's a book about it -- something went wrong in the story. Gah!

    Ahem. My own teaser is at Bookishgal.
