My Review

Season of My Enemy

Season of My Enemy is the story of a Wisconsin farm family. The father has passed away, and the two older brothers are off fighting in the war overseas. That leaves Fannie, her teenage brother and sister, and their mother to keep the farm going and bring in the crop. With all the able-bodied men gone to war, the only family reluctantly agrees to have German prisoners from a nearby POW camp serve as farm hands.

The farm life aspect of the story appealed to me at this stage of my life, but I was especially intrigued to have the German prisoner’s perspective as well. Not all Germans were Nazis during the war, nor did all who fought in the German army agree with Hitler’s cause. I was fascinated by how the characters worked through their prejudices and found common ground.

From the Publisher

Only last year, Fannie O’Brien was considered a beauty with a brain, and her future shone bright, despite the war pounding Europe. With her father’s sudden death and her brothers overseas, Fannie must now do the work of three men on their 200-acre farm—until eight German prisoners arrive and, just as Fannie feared, trouble comes too. Someone seems intent on causing “accidents,” and Fannie is certain the culprit is one of the two handsome older Germans—or possibly both. Can she manage the farm, keep the prisoners in line, and hold her family together through these turbulent times?
