This story has been stirring inside me for fifteen years, ever since my husband and I backpacked to an ancient Austrian town called Hallstatt that’s curled up between a snow-covered alp and pristine mountain lake (more on my research trip here). Along the lakeshore was an abandoned castle that sparked a story in my mind. And an old legend about hidden treasure set it on fire…
Hidden Among the Stars: The year is 1938, and as Hitler’s troops sweep into Vienna, Austrian Max Dornbach promises to help his Jewish friends hide their most valuable possessions from the Nazis, smuggling them to his family’s summer estate near the picturesque village of Hallstatt. He enlists the help of Annika Knopf, his childhood friend and the caretaker’s daughter, who is eager to help the man she’s loved her entire life. But when Max also brings Luzia Weiss, a young Jewish woman, to hide at the castle, it complicates Annika’s feelings and jeopardizes their entire plan until the Nazis come to the estate and find both Luzia and the treasure gone.
Eighty years later, Callie Randall is content with her quiet life, running a bookstore with her sister and reaching out into the world through her blog. Then she finds a cryptic list in an old edition of Bambi that connects her to Annika’s story . . . and maybe to the long-buried story of a dear friend. As she digs into the past, Callie must risk venturing outside the safe world she’s built for a chance at answers, adventure, and maybe even new love.
I hope you enjoy this journey to Austria!
