La infancia de Hanna Malter transcurrio en el pueblo de Burgdorf, a orillas del Rin, en la Alemania de la posguerra, cuando nadie queria recordar esos anos de horror y muerte y el periodo habia desaparecido incluso de los libros de texto. De la mano de Trudi Montag, la bibliotecaria del pueblo, una mujer solitaria y deforme que mata el aburrimiento entrometiendose en vidas ajenas, Hanna descubre los secretos de sus vecinos, historias que son a veces inconfensables verguenzas y, otras veces, heroicidades de ese pasado que los adultos se empenan en borrar. Pero mas alla de los misterios de las gentes de Burgdorf, con cada historia, Hanna aprende que dejar la infancia es mucho mas dificil de lo que nunca habia creido y que el mundo de los mayores esta repleto de gestos extranos e incomprensibles. / The childhood of Hanna Malter was spent in the town of Burgdorf, on the banks of the Rhine in Post War Germany, where no one wanted to remember those years of horror and death and the period had disappeared even in textbooks. From the hand of Trudi Montag, the town librarian, a lonely and deformed woman that kills the boredom meddling in people's lives, Hanna discovers the secrets of her neighbors, stories that are sometimes unmentionable embarrassments and, sometimes, heroic deeds of the past that adults are determined to erase.
