Golden Straw in my Hair
Antje's father is shot and killed by a SS-man because he had denied shooting innocent men. A rich farmer takes advantage of this death and marries his son Manfred off to Antje's mother Helena. Being incredibly brutal Manfred makes Helena's and Antje's lives a living hell. Only when the neighbor's son Guenter enters Antje's life, the situation gradually changes connected with many difficulties. However Antje is that much traumatized that she tries to make herself popular and indispensable everywhere. Only a severe illness makes Antje see reason. Based on diary entries, talks and enquiries the author Elisabeth Margaretha Countess of Schoengau-Brixendorf lively and comprehensibly created this work. This book enables the reader to get insights into a village community which is not idyllic at all, but it also shows that true love can't be destroyed and can move mountains. Elisabeth Margaretha Countess of Schoengau-Brixendorf grew despite its name in modest circumstances on, worked her way up to senior executives of a major bank high and serves customers who want to invest their money wisely. At a party in Cologne, she met a nurse from Hannover, who told her about a strange patient. Countess of Schoengau-Brixendorf then traveled to Hanover, met the patient and heard an incredible story. This resulted in her first book, "Sara, the weasel." A short time later, she researched the story of a village girl because of a note. That was the birth of the book "Golden Straw in my Hair".
