Margitta lives in Germany. She was 50 years old when the story took place, her husband then was about 30 years old. She was married twice before that and had a son of 20 at that time.
The husband and her met in Germany, fell in love (plus he needed a visa) and got married for a total of 15 years. At about half into that marriage he proposed the idea of bringing a second wife from his home Algeria to Germany. He wanted to have children of his own while Margitta could not have children anymore. He brought the second wife to Germany despite Margitta's opposition. They quickly started to hate each other and that second wife made life pretty stressful. They seperated, the second wife meanwhile gave birth to a few children, and not surprisingly they got divorced later.
This book is about that whole story, insights into western/arabic relationships, Margitta's feelings and troubles.
