This is a love story about a woman who loses her heart to hot, wild Australia and an Australian man. It is also about her escape, from the darkness of German guilt and from her own past - into a passionate marriage, motherhood, her career as a rural GP and obstetrician, and a new home in the pristine beauty of Tasmania.
Then comes the challenge of the 'German Year', when she takes her whole family to explore the Germany of today and finds herself facing the demons - and angels - of her past.
From a life full of fierce contrasts, bold voyages of adventure and an ardent search for personal truth, Adriane Wildencamp weaves a fascinating story that vibrates with the colours of her two homelands.
Seasons of Love is one of the most frank, fearless and spellbinding autobiographies ever written in Australia.
