Overview

Set in Bavaria, An Old Shrew, a Tortured Soul, and Everyday Angels is the story of a bitter feud between Olga, a tough and nasty octogenarian, and Agnes, the antiauthoritarian mother of three teen-age delinquents. Olga has perfected the art of manipulating and using people. A thorn in the side to many, she gets flak only from Agnes who has nothing to lose. While Olga practices being a flower thief, Agnes slides into alcoholism. The big clash comes when Olga puts a stop to Agnes's newly found calling, and Agnes counters with a spectacular fire. Out of the blue, three murders are committed. Who could be responsible? Olga, Agnes, or someone else altogether? Both Olga and Agnes prematurely lose their lives, largely due to their errant ways. They might have lived longer, had they accepted the support so freely and readily given by Olga's four wonderful neighbors; Sister Maria, a Catholic lay sister born in Turkey; Zora, a lovable Gypsy; her friend Adi; and others in their close-knit community. While An Old Shrew, a Tortured Soul, and Everyday Angels is first and foremost a work of fiction, it touches upon the fate of the countless displaced persons and foreign worker families who found a new life in Germany after World War II.
