ANNE G. FAIGEN
Rating: 4 Cups
Getting her grandmother out of Manhattan is a feat in itself, so Dr. Sarah Brandau is very excited to able to share her time in Prague with the woman who means everything to her. The speaking engagements she has will not take long, and the rest of the time they can explore and see the sights.
There is nothing Edith would not do for Sarah, and she is thrilled to be visiting such a beautiful and historic city. Antiques and art have always caught her eye, and it would be nice to take something home for her good friends.
The city of Prague is as beautiful as a fairytale and Sarah and Edith long to see all they can, but their first little excursion throws them right into a mess of trouble. Edith’s love of antiques takes them off the beaten path and in direct conflict with a notorious and deadly criminal. Sarah and Edith struggle to understand why they are being targeted, and become even more alarmed when a new but very dear friend strongly advises them to seek safety. Sarah finds it hard to believe that their purchase of a small print could have such massive ramifications, but she is about to learn firsthand what some families still do to reign supreme.
The relationship between Sarah and Edith is a joy to behold. They spar, laugh, and cry together, and they never fail to support and care for each other in any circumstance. I also like that the author does not try to turn them into super-sleuths, but rather keeps them honest and real. The historical background is extensive and well written, but it is the heart and personality of the characters that really capture your attention.
