A novel by

 
 
The first in a new series from Petra Durst-Benning, the bestselling author of The Glassblower series.

An inspiring historical tale of one woman risking it all for her dreams set in 1890s Berlin.

After the tragic death of her little brother, Josephine travels to the Black Forest to heal. There she discovers a feeling of freedom astride a brand-new invention: the bicycle. The very idea of a woman on a bicycle is beyond taboo - it is indecent and even illegal - but Josephine will not be deterred. Back home, Josephine rides under cover of night, while the world is still asleep so as not to provoke a scandal. But Berlin's streets are dangerous and the winds of change are blowing.

Can Josephine's fighting heart help her overcome the obstacles in her path? Will the passion she feels for this new adventure lead her toward true love?
