Muriel Gardiner was born into wealth and privilege, the heiress to the fortunes of the two greatest meatpacking families in Chicago. As a young woman, she decided to leave her family and study in Europe, taking a particular interest in the work of Dr. Sigmund Freud. Soon after, Hitler annexed Austria and Muriel found herself in Vienna's Medical School just as the Nazis were breaking down the doors. As a member of the Austrian resistance, she smuggled papers, and hid hundreds of Jews and political dissidents over the course of six years. Featuring great characters such as Sigmund and Anna Freud and Stephen Spender, Muriel's life story is packed with adventure and inspiring acts of bravery.
