      This book is presented as letters from an English girl studying music in Germany to her mother in the years leading up to World War I. I had no idea this was actually fiction until just now, after reading the page. When I read the book, I thought it was non-fiction, and it was absolutely heartbreaking and beautiful. Now, it's a little bit trite. I guess no one writes such lovely, thoughtful letters to their mother. Damn !

      This book claimed to be actual letters written by a young Englishwoman in Germany to study violin just as WWI was beginning. Nothing in it stated that it was a work of fiction. As anti-German propaganda, it really deserves 5 stars. Although I had doubts as to its authenticity because it was so well written and the Germans were so consistently unlikeable, it was very convincing. I read the original 1917 edition, which made it seem even more convincing.

      This brief book is wonderfully written. I would give it five stars if the author did not sometimes stretch credibility with features of this faux-dairy. For instance, the reader quickly wonders what sort of daughter mails her mother several letters a day. Despite these misgivings, I gave way to thinking I was reading real letters from the era preceding the First World War. My first thought upon realizing that the entire diary was fiction was chagrin, and remorse that I had wasted two hours readi [...]

      Romanzo epistolare ambientato nel 1914, grazie alla Von Armin veniamo catapultati poche settimane prima dell'inizio della prima guerra mondiale che vide la Germania e l' Inghilterra su fronti contrapposti. Nelle lettere alla madre, speranze per il futuro, impressioni e commenti sul noto periodo storico. Differente da altri Von Armin, altrettanto prezioso e personale.

      A young woman travels to Berlin to improve her ‘fiddling’ skills before the commencement of World War One and through her letters to her mother we witness her hopes, dreams and how they are all shattered as war begins.This is not a long novel about 140 pages but at times it can drag. Really drag. I found the difficulty in the voice of Christine especially when she goes on and on about her relationship with her mother. I know it is a different time, a different age but her attachment to Mothe [...]

      Da dieser Roman nicht mein erstes Buch von Elizabeth von Arnim ist, wusste ich von vornherein, dass er mir gefallen wird. Allerdings hatte ich nicht mit der Thematik gerechnet und schon gar nicht damit, dass mich dieser Roman so aufwühlen würde. Die Briefe von Christine an ihre Mutter (Mai bis August 1914)sind zu Beginn sehr fröhlich, aber schon bald zeichnet sich ab, dass der 1. Weltkrieg unvermeidbar scheint. Was Christine als Engländerin in dieser Zeit in Deutschland erlebt und warum Eliz [...]

      Being German of course I partly found the anti-German sentiments partly really hurtful - probably also because some wh found myself in them. Keeping in mind that this book was written in 1917 and Elizabeth von Arnim's own background story it was understandable though. (Still I think all in all there was not one single likeable character because also Christine herself was not a very charming young lady in my admittedly quite naïve and narrow-minded opinion.) I still consider myself a fan of Eliz [...]
