About the book
After the death of her father, a renowned professor of German cultural history, Elisabeth is faced with the task of clearing out his house. Since she was never able to get along with her father, this does not initially seem too much of a challenge. But when Elisabeth receives a letter, addressed to her father, rooms open up in the past of which she had no knowledge. Elisabeth and Anna, two women who never met, turn out to have caused a turning point in each other’s lives. It’s too late to change this, but perhaps not too late to understand it. A Kind of Love tells the story of many kinds of love: a troublesome love between father and daughter, and an unexpected love between an older professor and a young student. Love seems elusive and ambivalent, always.
