Enemy Brothers

By Constance Savery
Level 6

This book is a timeless treasure. Written in 1943, the author did not even know the outcome of World War II as she wrote about it. The characters are well-developed, engaging, and convincing, and the story is intriguing. I also love the fact that the book gives deep insight into history and human nature, and the characters have high moral character. The writing is fantastic. I highly recommend this book. The summary reads: “British airman Dym Ingleford is convinced that the young German prisoner, Max Eckermann, is his brother Anthony who was kidnapped years before. Raised in the Nazi ideology, Tony has by chance tumbled into British hands. Dym has brought him back, at least temporarily, to the family he neither remembers nor will acknowledge as his own.”
