My thoughts: I give it ❤️❤️. The story was interesting and it kept me wanting to know more, but I couldn’t seem to connect with Dieter and Gerald. I never really felt their relationship. Dieter had a very sheltered childhood, so at times he appeared childlike, and it was hard to reconcile that with the working adult fighting for his family legacy.
Years ago, Dieter Krumpf’s grandmother died and left him everything, including a photo album containing pictures of the art collection she left behind when her family fled the Nazis. Now, Dieter is calling on the services of a lawyer, Gerald Young, to determine whether his family’s legacy might be returned to him.
Gerald doesn’t hold out much hope that the paintings will be returned, but Dieter’s earnestness speaks to him and he agrees to help. At first he concludes that while Dieter has a case, suing in Austria isn’t practical. But Gerald is a good lawyer, and as his feelings for Dieter develop, so does his determination to win the case. Together, Gerald and Dieter navigate research, hearings, and a dysfunctional family in the pursuit of fine art—and discover the art of love along the way.
