Stars of Destiny

 A stirring tale of love and betrayal, despair and courage, set against the
background of the First World War

In this novel, Sarah Lark tells a wonderful love story that plays out against the great panorama of world political events in the early 20th century. A young couple has to leave Germany in order to lead a happy life without anti-Jewish sentiment. Yet when the First World War breaks out, they suddenly find themselves just as unwanted in their new home country of New Zealand.

Hanover, just before the First World War. For Mia, the daughter of a Jewish banker, and Julius, a young aristocratic officer, it’s love at first sight. In order to have a future together, they emigrate to New Zealand, where they plan to establish a horse breeding farm. When war breaks out, however, they are suspected of espionage and are interned separately. It is only through the efforts of young Wilhelmina, who loves nothing more than horses, that the farm can be saved. But it comes at a high price, and after the war nothing is the same anymore.

For readers of century-spanning, generational Sagas
