From the Maitland Mercury report:
A tale of love and war on the Eastern Front will come into focus on Thursday night in Maitland.
As part of Maitland City Library’s Look Who’s Talking Local Authors program, Joanna Hempel will talk about her book Feet of wax: Love and War on the Eastern Front 1914-1918.
Inspired by the diaries of her grandparents, Hempel wrote an historic novel that begins in 1913 and moves across Poland, Lithuania and Russia.
The main characters are a young couple and their families face separation and trials while experiencing the political and historic events on both sides of the eastern front.
