Product Description

Set in Europe during World War II, Edelweiss is a story of heroism and love.

Marietta von Burgheim is a woman of beauty and morality, and an heiress to a fortune. Turning her back on the responsibilities of her noble birth and her father's wrath, Marietta joins a student resistance group determined to overthrow the Nazis.

Bill Roth, Reuters' correspondent based in pre-war Berlin, is the maverick heir to his uncle, an American industrialist. When Bill and Marietta meet they fall headlong in love, but their passion is overshadowed by the horror of the Nazi occupation and the outbreak of war.

Hugo von Hesse, Marietta's step-brother, makes a meteoric rise through the ranks to become a powerful SS officer. Reaching the pinnacle of power in the New Order, Hugo uses his position to destroy the von Burgheims and take over the family fortune.

As the Nazis tighten their grip on Europe, the struggle between Marietta, Bill and Hugo becomes a microcosm of the war itself – violent, bloody and treacherous.

Madge Swindells was born and educated in England. As a teenager, she emigrated to South Africa where she studied archaeology at Cape Town University. Later, in England, she was a Fleet Street journalist and the manager of her own publishing company. Her earlier novels, Summer Harvest, Song of the Wind, Shadows on the Snow, The Corsican Woman, The Sentinel and Harvesting the Past were international bestsellers and have been translated into eight languages. She lives in South Africa.
