Publisher's Synopsis

Villa Elsa is a novel by Stuart Henry that tells the story of a German family living in the early 20th century. The family, headed by patriarch Franz von Kessel, is wealthy and lives in a grand villa in the countryside. The novel explores the complex relationships between the family members, including Franz's wife, his children, and his sister-in-law. As the family navigates the changing political and social landscape of Germany, they are forced to confront their own personal struggles and the secrets they have been keeping from each other. Along the way, they encounter a cast of colorful characters, including a mysterious Russian countess and a group of radical students.Through vivid descriptions and rich character development, Villa Elsa offers a glimpse into the lives of the German elite during a tumultuous period in history. The novel is a compelling exploration of family dynamics, love, and betrayal set against the backdrop of a changing world.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
