“Hard to put it down. An interesting portrait of San Francisco society in the 1950s with a mystery to pull the readers along.” – Mark Farmer, Amazon Review

Edward J. Dumke’s “Family Secrets: A San Francisco Saga” will be displayed by the self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet at the Frankfurt Book Fair (Frankfurter Buchmesse) 2023. The book trade fair will take place on October 18-22, 2023, at the Frankfurt Trade Fair grounds, Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage 1, 60327 Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

The Frankfurt Book Fair is the world’s largest trade fair for books and other published materials. It is a five-day event that happens in mid-October every year. The event is also the most important fair for international deals and trading. Also known as the Frankfurter Buchmesse, the event is annually organized by Frankfurter Buchmesse GmbH, a subsidiary of the German Publishers and Booksellers Association.

Set in 1953, “Family Secrets” follows a young woman and heiress, Katherine McMasters, who returns to her city of birth – San Francisco – after the mysterious death of her father. She is to inherit the steamship line her father had owned and operated. With the help of her eccentric great Aunt Louisa and her cousin Albert, Katherine learns to love the city again.

Katherine’s life and relationship with her family become more complicated. She also finds a love she cannot deny. These experiences lead her to a journey of self-discovery, letting Katherine navigate through San Francisco’s high society, the perils of the waterfront, the Bohemians of North Beach, and the intrigues of her board of directors. Her most difficult challenge is to unravel her family’s secrets that overshadow her. With this, she must find her inner strength and come to terms with a past shrouded in mystery.

“Family Secrets: A San Francisco Saga” is very cinematic and perfect for a development for a TV mini-series. There is currently interest in Hollywood to do just this.
