Linck & Mülhahn

By Ruby Thomas 

"It is life’s great aim. To find a way to be honest with oneself, even as the world pretends around you."

Dashing soldier Anastasius Linck has no intention of falling in love, but a chance encounter with the rebellious Catharina Mülhahn changes everything. As they begin to forge a relationship that breaks boundaries and rejects the rigid rules of their society, they find themselves confronted by a world determined to tear them apart.
