Stirring – oppressive – enlightening: A trilogy about the roots of anti-Semitism.
In 1923, in the French Pyrenees, Leonie Lasker is entrusted with an unusual mission. Her great-grandmother, a follower of the mystic Jewish Kabbalah, has had a vision of great suffering that is going to befall the Jews, and she asks Leonie to find the three golden letters of the Hebrew word “Emeth” (= truth) distributed among her brothers living in Berlin, Vienna and Spain. Whoever is in the possession of all three signs will be able to make alive a golem – a mystical creature who shall be able to save the Jewish people from all harm.
The three-volume family saga is in the tradition of the Trilogie der Wendepunkte [Trilogy of the Turning Points] by Klaus Kordon and the Bienmann Saga by Willi Fährmann.
This wonderful love story is full of fascinating settings, exciting plots and rousing characters
The Three Signs (Vol.1): This first volume of the family chronicle is about Leonie's search for her Jewish origins, her life in Berlin in the “Golden Twenties”, her first love and the search for the first sign.
"Her books are never boring; the writer obviously thoroughly enjoys creating a story."
