The women in the castle by Jessica Shattuck
Also available in: e-book | audiobook | e-audiobook

02Three women, haunted by the past and the secrets they hold, are the focus of this riveting novel. Set at the end of World War II, in a crumbling Bavarian castle that once played host to all of German high society, this is a powerful and propulsive story of three widows whose lives and fates become intertwined--an affecting, shocking, and ultimately redemptive novel from the author of the New York Times Notable Book The Hazards of Good Breeding.
