A Letter from Madam Vilma is a novel about the secrets of a family’s past. It is written in a narrative and epistolary form.

This mysterious and sensual novel reveals the hidden truth about an unusual bourgeois family and the suffering of a woman who sacrificed her love to save others from poverty. A Letter from Madam Vilma is a touching story about friendship and love, about the complex relationship between father and son, about revenge and unrequited love, but above all it is the tragic story of one family’s fate. Whether some secrets should stay buried and how much their revelation can influence later life and fate are questions this novel also discusses. Forgiveness is a blessing and Prof. Arthur Veis becomes aware of this after his father’s confession that unravels the tangled web of family secrets. In the past Arthur finds a moral for the future.

A Letter from Madam Vilma was the most-read novel in Serbian libraries in 2012. It received the Golden Hit ex libris, was translated into Macedonian, and in one year sold almost 40,000 copies.
