The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck

Join us for a discussion of The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck

Three women, haunted by the past and the secrets they hold, rebuild their lives in in the wake of World War II.  In a crumbling Bavarian castle that once played host to all of German high society, amid the ashes of Nazi Germany’s defeat, Marianne von Lingenfels returns to the once-grand castle of her husband’s ancestors, an imposing stone fortress now fallen into ruin following years of war. The widow of a resister murdered in the failed July 20, 1944, plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler, Marianne plans to uphold the promise she made to her husband’s brave conspirators: to find and protect their wives, her fellow resistance widows. 

All are welcome and registration is not required. Copies of the next book are available at each meeting.
