Punta Gorda residents know Maria von Atzigen as the cheerful co-owner of Swiss Connections, the café and chocolate shop she ran with her late husband, Franz. But not many know of the couple’s years in the Swiss foreign service. Maria and Franz traveled the globe representing their homeland. Now Maria has written a memoir of those years, sharing her life of excitement, enterprise, and family values. Swiss Connections, lavishly illustrated with photographs, offers a humorous, insightful look at the world Maria knew.
