Petra Hartrlieb (Munich 1981) studied Psychology and History and worked as a literary critic and journalist in Austria. In 2004 she reopened, together with her husband, a well-known Viennese bookstore, which she has revealed through her novel "My wonderful bookstore". She is also a co-author - together with Claus-Ulrich Bielefeld - of a series of police novels, published in Switzerland.
"Winter in Vienna" is a very simple, enjoyable novel, almost a Christmas tale, which tells the story of a nanny that Arthur Schniltzler, an Austrian psychiatrist, playwright and novelist hires to take care of hir two young children. She is a young girl who comes from a remote Austrian town and has no formal education, but knows how to read, likes it and transmits her enthusiasm to the children. This same passion leads her to meet a neighboring bookseller who soon falls in love with her.
The plot is quite simple develops naturally, but has enough action to maintain the attention and suspense of the reader. And the kindness that the author transmits makes the novel pleasant.
