Hi, am looking for a book I read years ago & I don't know the name of it.
It starts out that a woman (in the German/Bavarian Alps?) finds herself the last person alive after a possible atomic or some type of bomb/destruction.  I believe she'd had dinner at friends or vice-versa and wakes to find destruction all around her.  If I recall right, she was middle aged?

It is all written thru her experiences, every feeling, etc.

She finds an empty "shelter-cabin" on one of the hills.  Her survival skills are required again and again.

Her trials & tribulations are vast and she's very lonely...then she finds a dog. 


It's an odd book...but I'd like to read it again.
my thanks in advance for any help
Gail
