2 Works in Friedrich Weimer/Other(s)
Two mothers suspect the deep friendship between their sons has evolved into romance. Their situations and husbands are entirely different, leading them to react in different ways as private connections between Albrecht and Friedrich become public.
Chapter 1 - Frau Stein. Approval of the friendship becomes confusion and then disgust. Albrecht's suicide forces her to consider the behaviour of those closest to him, including herself. What role did each play in his downfall? Who is to shoulder the blame and whom should be forgiven?
Chapter 2 - Mother Weimer. Letters from Friedrich begin to create suspicion and then worry. His unexpected return from NaPolA confirms many of her fears while putting one to rest. Can she let Friedrich stay or must she force him to leave?
A piece of that winter day is lodged in his heart just like the shard of ice in the tale of the Snow Queen.
