A seductive, compelling alternate history in the tradition of The Man in the High Castle.
When the mysterious, beautiful Elleander Morning travels through time to Vienna in 1913, her aim is not to visit the birthplace of Schubert and Strauss. Instead, she has come to assassinate a struggling young artist. His name: Adolf Hitler.
But 60 years on, long after Elleander has changed the path of the world, a mysterious book - the history of a terrible, global war that never was - threatens to unravel reality. As the horrific past - a past that never happened - begins to reassert itself, billions of lives lie in the balance . . .

Jerry Yulsman (1924-1999)
Jerry Yulsman was a writer and photographer, who served in the U.S. Army Air Corps during the Second World War, earning a Distinguished Flying Cross. He returned to New York as a freelance photographer, chronicling the cultural rebellion and renaissance of post-war America in Greenwich Village. His photography appeared in Colliers, Pageant, Look, LIFE and Playboy, among others, and his 1957 image of Jack Kerouac, posed in the glow of a neighbourhood bar sign, has become one of 20th century photography's iconic images. His best-known novel is the alternative history, Elleander Morning.
