Short text

Sophia Mohr grew up in Diepholz in the late 18th century as the daughter of a wig maker. After the French Revolution, this craft was doomed and hardly anyone wanted to wear wigs anymore. Sophia's childhood wish of being able to take over the workshop is dashed and she sets out on her own life.

She meets the young traveling journeyman Anton Auling. The two spend a summer together in Vechta. With Anton's support, will Sophia be able to move forward with new plans before autumn comes?

The author Gabriele Bagge creates an entertaining, continuing family saga. The story is set in the guild world of Münster, Osnabrück, Diepholz and Vechta.
