The Freedom of Emma Herwegh

Dirk Kurbjuweit

From best-selling German author Dirk Kurbjuweit comes the story of Emma Herwegh, a woman ahead of her time.

When Emma marries the revolutionary poet Georg Herwegh, she desires and promises only one thing- to love and hate by his side for the rest of their lives. Their marriage creates waves in Berlin and the couple soon decamp to the Paris of Marx and Heine, where Emma is the only woman to join the armed struggle of 1948 to bring the French revolution back to Germany. But when Herwegh falls head over heels in love with the wife of his comrade Alexander Herzen, their manifesto of free love becomes a struggle between loyalty and betrayal.
