Einmal Sydney und zurück

by Katrin Schmidt

»Einmal Sydney und zurück« is the story about a girl named Chloe who moves to Australia to start a new life. Chloe wants to leave everything behind – especially her broken heart. So she dives into her new life, works for an Australian fashion magazine and lives in Manly – one of the hippest parts of the city. She enjoys every minute of her new life down under – at least until that one cold evening in Sydney when Daniel, her ex boyfriend, suddenly stands in front of her and she realizes that she can run to the other side of the world but she cannot run away from her past.

The novel is currently only available in German. Katrin aims to translate the book into English as soon as possible.
