The Lady in the Castle by Robert Tecklenburg
As a fast-paced historical drama of a young Austrian aristocrat’s struggle against tyranny, war, and social upheaval, a survivor and lady emerge strong, but filled with a deep sense of purpose and commitment to honoring the defenders of the Battle of Castle Itter.
The year is 1945, and the Gestapo sentences Maria Von Eickler to death at Dachau concentration camp for treason. Her husband, Josef, marched off to war immediately following their wedding night, and serves in the Wehrmacht fighting on the Western Front. Her plight is unknown to him. Kurt, an SS Officer but childhood friend, rescues her from certain death to serve high-ranking French politicians and soldiers imprisoned by Hitler in Castle Itter in the Austrian Tyrol.
Lady in the Castle is a triumph of the human spirit.
