At the turn of the century, Vienna is the imperial capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and teeming with intellectuals and bohemians eager to tear asunder the bonds of hundreds of years of convention.
While the gentlemen crusade to strip the streets of gilded facades, the ladies picket the same cobble-stoned lanes to rally for their rights. Weaving together fact and fiction, KC Blau reanimates history in tales of tragedy, love and inspiration of some of the era’s most fascinating women. Her heroines were considered the “muses” of their time and have spent the past hundred years standing in the historical shadows of their famous partners. She hopes her books will draw these ladies out of the dark corners of history into the light of contemporary fiction as they engage in the timeless search for love, identity and self-fulfillment.
