1925 - a curious George Taylor has left Britain behind to explore the gay capital of Europe: Berlin. But just as he’s starting to settle into his new home, an upcoming election threatens the liberated lifestyle for which he’d moved to Germany for. The Nazi Party are gaining popularity across the country and their ruthless leader, Adolf Hitler, is determined to punish homosexuals across the nation and beyond. Is George’s life coming to an end just as it’s only truly begun? Nobody can imagine the horrors that await him and his friends.
I've read many true accounts of the atrocities during WW2 but this is the first book I've read regarding the gay community and the suffering they endured.
I chuckled, laughed out loud and at the end, I unashamedly bawled my eyes out. It was a wonderful read, thank you so much for sharing your love for an amazing bunch of people
I felt as if I was taking every step of their journey alongside them.
