Petra Durst-Benning has developed a loyal following for her well-researched historical novels in her native Germany, where she lives with her husband. She has written more than a dozen books, many of which have gone on to be bestsellers. Durst-Benning's love of the US dates back many years. She visited frequently as a child and developed a passion for American bestsellers, which went on to inspire her own writing career in later years. The Glassblower's English-language debut is, in many ways, the fulfillment of a girlhood dream.
A greeting from the author:
my Name is Petra, I'm a German Author and in the last 20 years I have written more than fifteen novels, most of which have become bestsellers. Some were also transformed into movies in German Television - that was an exciting experience!
But even more exciting for me is the fact that my books are now published in English. This is a lifelong dream come true for me ...
For me my big success in America is still unbelievable. I cannot thank you enough for your affection of my "Glassblower-trilogy." It is such a great joy to see those thousands of happy customer reviews, it really makes my heart laugh with gladness. Thank you!!!
Now I wish you all a lot of wonderful reading hours with my new "Century wind-trilogy". When you meet Josefine, Clara and Isabelle, please tell them Hello from me!
