Hotel  Lionheart

   A Coming of Age Novel for all ages from 12+







Finalist of the 2016 Finch Memoir Prize


I grew up at the dawn of TV and Rock and Roll in a crumbling 600-year-old hotel on the shores of Lake Zurich with a wacky bunch of relatives and domestic helpers that kept the old place going. All I ever wanted was a TV and to kiss Gisela Miranda. I got a lot more than I bargained for.


“Hotel Lionheart is a deliciously rich read filled with the nostalgia of youth carried by a truly authentic voice. Brunner delivers warm and soft chuckles throughout. Nothing is overwrought in this tightly and intricately written book.
