The Love Trap (On My Mother's Grave)

Bianca seems to have it all: Beauty, Health, Family, a successful Career – So why is she crying ? A short note from a younger co-worker informing her of his upcoming marriage makes her realize that she is in love with him instead of her husband. . . . and at this moment her whole life changes from contentment to turmoil. The story begins with a flashback to the hardship of being a teen girl in post-war Germany, and continues, alternating between her romance with her American husband, and her growing involvement with the younger Frederick. In a surprising twist she finally realizes who the love of her life is. But - will it be too late for her decision, or will she finally find peace?
