She wants her home. He wants control. The Fascist regime wants both.
1920, former Austrian Tyrol. Katharina Thaler faces becoming the first woman to ever own a farm in the Reschen Valley. The end of the Great War has taken more than her beloved family, it has robbed the province of its autonomy and severed it in half. As her countrymen fight to prevent the annexation to Italy, Katharina finds a wounded Italian engineer on her mountain. Her decision to save Angelo Grimani's life, however, thrusts both into the midst of a new world order-a labyrinth of corruption, prejudice, and greed.
Trapped between a growing fascist regime and a man who threatens to tear her home away, Katharina must decide what to protect: love or country?
No Man's Land is the first book in the Reschen Valley historical fiction series. If you enjoy gripping, historical fiction that will stay long after you've read the last chapter, you will love Chrystyna Lucyk-Berger's vivid saga.
