The Village Teacher - Silence and Storm

One teacher’s fateful year 

It is the end of the First World War, in Tannau. The village teacher, Antonie Weber, is highly valued and respected, the glue that holds this small mountain village together. Her peace is broken only by the new priest who seems intent on making her life difficult. And soon Sebastian, Antonie's great, unrequited love, returns home from war unscathed. 

But the tranquillity of Tannau life is suddenly ripped to shreds when the Munich November Revolution breaks out in 1918, dividing the village population into those loyal to the monarchy and those loyal to the revolutionaries. In these times of political upheaval, Antonie finally allows herself to fall properly for Sebastian. But is she prepared to sacrifice everything she has achieved so far for her love? 

  • The sequel to vol. I of 'The Village Teacher'
  • Big feelings and a breathtaking scenery in the mountains
  • For readers of Anne Jacobs ('The Cloth Villa') and Carmen Korn
