Waiting for Sunrise, Hardback

Waiting for Sunrise Hardback



Vienna, 1913. Lysander Rief, a young English actor, walks through the city to his first appointment with eminent psychiatrist, Dr Bensimon.

Sitting in the waiting room he is anxiously pondering the particularly intimate nature of his neurosis when a young woman enters.

Lysander is immediately drawn to her strange, hazel eyes and her unusual, intense beauty.

Her name is Hettie Bull. Their subsequent affair is both passionate and particularly destructive.

Moving from Vienna to London's West End, from the battlefields of France to hotel rooms in Geneva, Waiting for Sunrise is a feverish and mesmerising journey into the human psyche, a beautifully observed portrait of wartime Europe, a plot-twisting thriller and a literary tour de force.
