After the ambitious West Berliner loses the dashing East German again, who is in possession of the valuable work of art she is looking for, her life is thrown into considerable chaos.
My woman-driven, fresh and sexy romantic drama begins in Berlin in 1989 and cuts forward to Palma in 2019.
The Brandenburg Gate, which has just reopened, invites the fresh-faced West Berliner to cross the Berlin Wall and, conversely, the East German to find his father in England, as they both fall in love. Neither knows that their roots lie in the same village in East Germany, where the German countess is researching a valuable family portrait entrusted to his deceased German grandmother, a former cook in the aristocratic family. Instead of swapping identities, they lose touch after a one-night stand and remain involuntarily separated for the next three decades.
After the birth of their shared son, she moves to Palma, where she bridges cultures and makes international friends.
Unsuspecting, he sponsors his own son, a celebrated Berlin polo player. She, by now a sought-after real estate queen, unexpectedly gets an English lord, her son’s sponsor, thrust under her nose by her best friend as her future husband.
The work of art she is looking for is in his possession.
In the end, she finds out who he is and why he is in charge of her art treasures. They finally become a family.
