Storyline

Maria's husband and children give her a puzzle for her 50th birthday. She's delighted, and finds it a great discovery. Not only does the patient housewife have fun doing the puzzles, she's also really good at them. Overflowing with enthusiasm for her new-found passion, she goes back to the shop where they bought the gift for another puzzle. There her eye is caught by a notice on the message board: "Partner for puzzle tournament wanted". Maria musters her courage and, despite her family's misgivings, answers the announcement. Written by Anonymous

The novel by Henrich, "Die Schachspielerin", on which the Kevin Kline movie was based was published in German in 2007, I think, and is available on Amazon.
