Here's what readers say:

The book is very good, for a number of reasons. 1. It’s such a great story in itself. The characters really lead you in to the plot. I read it all again in one go just to enjoy the story. I even created a family tree! 2. I really like the English-to German translation exercise for the summary at the end of each chapter. It’s a great addition to what Daniela has done before. What’s great also is that anyone who doesn’t want to do their translation can simply read the summary in German. 3. There is lots of useful information on places in the former DDR. 4. I really like the grammar tips at the end of each chapter. Even phrases such as ’stimmt so’ in a restaurant are so handy to know. There is so much helpful learning throughout the book - like a textbook, almost! In my German learning, I have just finished level B1, going on to B2 this term, and I found the level at which the book is set to be good for me, being not too difficult at all. Overall, it’s great and I really enjoyed it for its own sake and also for my own learning of German.

I have been following Daniela and her books from nearly the beginning, and her books keep getting better. What is special about them? So, I love reading stories in German, it really helps me grasp the language. Daniela adds many extra special bonus' to her stories at the end of each chapter; there is something for every learning style, and if you do not feel like doing the exercises, the story is still worth reading along with the insights, and with all of the vocabulary built right in, it's perfect to learn, and strengthen your German. There is no flipping to the end of the chapter to look for the word definitions, it's on the same or next page! Perfect! I also really enjoy the context and cultural insights she adds to each chapter. I have learnt so much, from just this one book, that I have been wondering about for a year or more. You will not regret your purchase. Will buy more in the future! Daniela, keep writing more fantastic books! Danke!
