This vibrant and unusual re-creation of one woman’s life is the result of years of painstaking research and interviews. Favoured among Women combines biography, personal reflection, poetry, historical commentary, and (above all) vivid storytelling.

We meet Greta Enns as a curious, observant, and compassionate child born in peaceful times which are soon torn asunder. Her life becomes one of hardship and the utter confusion of war, but one also marked by profound religious hope, as well as love and joy.

Hedy Leonora Martens has written a novel both epic and intimate, dramatically presenting daily life in Leninist and Stalinist Russia in the first decades of the twentieth century.
