Reactions from bookshops:
»The Queen Remains Silent is a very special book that I liked immensely and that touched me profoundly. I read it in a weekend and could not put it down. Fanny grew dear to me, almost like a confidante. It is amazing how a young writer can tell this story with so much sensibility.« (Gudrun Suchanek,
Buch&Boot, Altaussee, Austria)
»A rather stunning book – a significant topic, an unusual perspective, a clear language, an assertive style; the author knows her trade.« (Ute Pukropski, Libretto book shop, Oldenburg, Germany)
