The Cloth Elephant

by David Fawkes

It is 1927, and young German diplomat Peter von Saloman and his family are posted to Canton in China, only to find themselves caught up in vicious political turmoil which soon leads to a violent encounter with rebel communists. Cured of crippling injuries by ancient Chinese medicine, their young son Adam soon emerges as a boy with unusual spirit – and very special gifts. On their return to their homeland, the Von Salomans find themselves caught up in the rise of the Nazis in the prelude to World War II. Peter, his beautiful wife Kathe and young Adam will need all the courage and wisdom they learned in China to survive the iniquities of the Third Reich. Long after the war, when her professor boss and lover dies of cancer, Katerina Lindemann discovers that he is not at all the man she thought he was, and that the two of them share an unexpected link with the Von Salomans and their stand against the Nazis. This thrilling and intriguing story will draw the reader into an ingenious and stirring tale of fascism and bravery, love and loyalty.
