Kurt Palka, author of Clara

Clara Herzog is a privileged, intelligent and thoughtful young woman whose world is changed forever when 1930s Vienna is swept up by the dark prelude of the Second World War. The cavalry officer she married in spite of her family's objections is soon called away to the thick of the conflict, and it falls to Clara, as to so many mothers, wives, sisters and sweethearts through the centuries, to stay at home to provide and protect.
