Mimi has broken with all traditions and declined a marriage proposal for following her dream to become a traveling photographer. It’s extremely non-traditional for the time period but her passion and she’s strong willed, talented and driven. Following the example of her uncle, Mimi sets off on her adventure and the story ensues.
Petra Durst - Benning is a seasoned, German author of historical fiction. This book is well written and the translation is clean. At times, the dialogue slips into language that’s more appropriate for contemporary characters but it lasts only a sentence and then fades. The prose is solid and a good feeling of time and place are easily accessible to the reader.
What’s not available is a conclusion; for those that dislike cliff hangers, you might be a tiny bit upset with this ending as there are many threads left unresolved; VERY MANY. The wait won’t be too long as the concluding volume is due out in September of 2020.
Benning has penned a clean story. There’s no foul language, sexual content or violence to speak of. The heroine is a courageous woman and the supporting characters run the gamut from quirky uncle to fleeting paramour and everything in between. An intriguing read with open issues I liked enough to read the sequel . Read & Reviewed using my Kindle Unlimited subscription📚

My only gripe is the ending ..why leave it in such a way , a bad way ..I know you want the reader to buy the next in the series , but by the time that comes out ,I feel the connection between them will be lost. I did not feel it was a good plac e to finish this book .
Then a newcomer shakes them up a bit, before she has settled in and come to see that there is not much choice to dream big. Finally the prodigal son returns, what will happen next?
