A dying woman, given a second chance to relive her life, travels back in time. Her goal: the execution of an obscure Viennese artist named Adolf Hitler. Two generations later, the assassin's granddaughter is mystified to discover a book relating the history of World War II ― the chronicle of a conflict that never took place.
Elleander Morning spans eight decades of the twentieth century, tracing two different timelines from two very different worlds and raising thought-provoking questions along the way. Part detective story, part thriller, and part romance, this alternative history won the 1986 Ditmar Award for best international fiction and the 1987 Kurd-Laßwitz-Preis. This edition features a new Introduction by Gavriel Rosenfeld, an expert on Nazi Germany and the Holocaust.
