Anne Jacobs’ trilogy, Die Tuchvilla (The Cloth Villa), has become slowly a real bestseller in Germany.
It is a historical novel + women’s fiction – saga that transports us to Augsburg at the beginning of the 20th. century and to the mansion of a wealthy family that hides a dark secret.
The three volumes of 700 pages each, have captivated German readers and this week we find vol.1 in place #1 of the Spiegel bestseller list (with 46 weeks in lists); vol.2 in place #9 (after 26 weeks in lists); and vol. 3 in place #3 and in lists since its publication in December.
