The letters of Shiela Grant Duff and Adam von Trott zu Solz tell of a friendship - tender, strained, and in the end tragic - between a young Englishwoman who became a distinguished foreign correspondent in the mid-1930s, and a German Rhodes Scholar who eventually joined the resistance againstHitler and was executed by the Nazis. The correspondence spans the years when Sheila and Adam's friendship first blossomed, amid hopes for a new Europe and a world order of social justice and self-rule. The story continues to the eve of war, when their relationship finally floundered under thestrain of their own temperaments and the mounting crisis in Europe.
