Berlin 1909: You can lose everything in life, except your courage. This is the advice given to the happy-go-lucky Margarete by her father as she ventured out into the world. At the time it isn't clear to her just how often she will think back to that advice, as she loses nearly every person who ever meant anything to her. In a Berlin café she meets the handsome Kasimir, the man of her dreams who she follows into Prussian occupied Poland. Ostracised by his family, for whom she represents the hated Prussian oppressor, soon the only thing she has left of Kasimir is the body she risks her life to recover from the front. Her children grow up torn between two nationalities. Against the backdrop of the Second World War they must choose -- between Germany or Poland. Gosia's son Romek ultimately sides with Hitler; her daughter Hela joins the Polish resistance. Nearing her hundredth birthday, Gosia looks back over her long life and comes to one conclusion: despite all the tribulations, it had been worth living -- and loving. Kirkus Reviews: "Grete’s narrative voice (...) makes well-tread subject matter feel fresh." More information: www.gosiaskinder.de
