The German connection

Here is chapter four of Christobel, wherein the (other) titular Chris moves to Germany to work and live with his German girlfriend Frieda. The present-day part of the book is set in 2014-15, back in the halcyon, non-xenophobic days of European togetherness when people could fall in love with someone from elsewhere in the EU and freely move to live and work with them in either of their native countries (a situation which might no longer obtain when British divorce from the continental mainland is triggered; please excuse the political point, but I feel strongly about it). 2,705 more words
