Tying Down The Lion

By Joanna Campbell

Historical fiction, General fiction, Literary fiction | Paperback, eBook


It is the summer of 1967, and the Bishop family are departing their UK home for a continental road trip. Their destination: Berlin, a gritty city recovering from the bombs of World War Two and now sliced in half by the Cold War. Will the journey unite the Anglo-German family, or forever rip them apart? This is a story of ordinary people in an extraordinary situation, and the discovery of how something divided can be more revealing than a perfect whole. It is a quest for a family who build walls in their minds as they try to discover who they are and where they belong. Tying Down The Lion is a remarkable story that is both hilarious and heartbreaking. It will appeal to readers of all ages.



Joanna Campbell has a degree in German. She has taught both English in Germany and German in England. As part of her degree course, which included the study of East Germany, she lived in West Germany for a year. All the people she met were keen to share their experiences of both the Second World War and the Cold War. Most of all, they were enchanted that an English girl, despite past and present hostilities, choose to live in their country, learn the language and try and understand how the ordinary person felt.
