(From the publisher):
Burning Secret is set in an Austrian sanatorium in the 1920's. A lonely twelve-year-old boy is befriended and becomes infatuated by a suave and mysterious baron who heartlessly brushes him aside to turn his seductive attentions to the boy's mother. Stefan Zweig provides the reader with a study of childhood on the brink of adolescence and a boy's uncontrollable jealousy and feelings of betrayal.
