ABOUT THE BOOK
Baron Ferdinand Harsanyi — After his wife's mysterious death, this Austrian attaché holds control over mines whose coveted ore could turn the tide of war.

Rudolph Harsanyi — Unsure whom to trust, the Baron's son's grief over his mother's death twists into growing anger and a desire to break free.
As France and Prussia plunge toward war, one family is caught in a web of deceit, political intrigue, and murder that threatens to tear them apart.

I recently studied about the Franco-Prussian war in history last semester and I feel that the novel was an accurate depiction of the life and times during that time period. I was not fond of the layout of the book. The book was interesting but the way it was divided into little chapters confused me at times. The scenery and characters were always changing and it took me a while to get all the characters straight. The description of the scenery, clothing and the people were vivid and accurate. Once I was able to figure out the characters, the story was great.
