Halwill Publishing presents Loving the Enemy: building bridges in a time of war, which tells the compelling true story of Fred Clayton, a grammar schoolboy from Liverpool, and brilliant Cambridge scholar, who leaves the comfort of the halls of Cambridge at the beginning of the Nazi era and makes a troubled journey to discover first-hand what life must be like to live under the despotic regime. Arriving in Dresden, he develops a friendship with a German family that will change his life
Through the course of the next decade, with his and their nations at war, Fred will not forget the connections that have been made and refuses to allow hate to win.
After the war, with Dresden in ruins, reflecting his own state of mind, Fred writes to the same German family. Will he find the healing, love and redemption he seeks?
Complete with a foreword written by Bishop of Coventry, Christopher Cocksworth, Loving the Enemy is a compelling true story of love, loss and redemption.
A wonderful story. Family history and perseverance to do the right thing. Found it hard to put it down. Fabulously written.
This is a compelling, well written biography with many attributes of a thriller that I couldn’t put down. I highly recommend it.
I absolutely loved this book. It is a page-turning true life story of two fascinating people, Fred and Rike, living through the tumultuous 1930s and 1940s. It is a real human story, and I came to love the key characters.
This story is truly compelling and beautifully written. It is gritty, honest and deeply moving, giving new insights into both sides of the war. Highly recommended!
