The Miracle Women

#2 Simply the best of Everything

Number 1 on the SPIEGEL literature bestseller list: The second volume of the “Die Wunderfrauen” series: four strong women between the economic miracle and the hippie era, between nylons and emancipation, between love and friendship.

At the beginning of the 1960s, the Swinging Sixties, there was a lot to do in Luise Dahlmann’s little shop; it was her pride and joy. The shelves are filled to the brim with everything your heart desires: fresh goods from the surrounding area and delicacies from all over the world. Luise wants to keep up with the competition, the customers suddenly want self-service, look for offers and ask for the recipe for Sunday dinner.

Three women are at her side in this decade full of upheavals: the single parent Helga, who now works as a doctor, her sister-in-law Marie, who now has four children, and Annabel, whose family is in danger of breaking up after a stroke of fate. In recent years, life has brought the four women closer together than they thought. And they notice: together you can create real things from dreams.

The 2nd volume of the wonder women trilogy – three novels about four friends whose lives we can follow from the economic boom in the mid-1950s to the 1972 Olympic Games.
