The Girl Who Lost Her Way
"It was so ridiculous, what her sister feared from her. She, the beautiful, proud creature who dreamt of life as if of a subjugated province, she who saw herself moving in a carriage drawn by eight horses into a marble palace, escorted on left and right by young riders in white uniforms just like one she had seen that morning, she, the cool, rational Hertha who was so very much conscious of her innate power over men, she should begin her career with an absurd love affair with her brother-in-law?"
Genuineness and the scent of the home soil come through from this book. The spicy salt air, the dunes and valleys of the terrain, the wholesomeness of the characters, the play of land and sea. -- All this is achieved so perfectly that we can be heartily thankful to the author for this work. -- Breslauer Zeitung
