Eddie’s Desert Rose by Vincent Meis

Bio: I grew up in the Midwest and at an early age I began writing plays, which I cajoled my sisters to act in. In the 1980’s and 90’s I published several pieces, mostly travel articles, in several different magazines. In recent years I have finished three novels and a number of short stories. All three novels are set at least partially in foreign countries—Cuba, Saudi Arabia, and Mexico. I currently live in San Francisco.

When Isabelle’s secret past returns to haunt her nightmares, she must take action to protect her family from a threat that is closer than she realises.
Set within the traditional Viennese café culture, ‘Wiener Blut’ (literally translated as ‘Viennese Blood’) is the story of café owner Isabelle Schindler-Krug and her role in a struggle for power that stretches back for centuries.
As she tells her sons the legends behind coffee and Vienna, it becomes clear that one such legend is still in the making, with her own family caught right in the middle.
