About the Book

Loving the Enemy is a moving memoir. But it is far more than a journal of significant personal experience. Read it, and you will encounter an invitation to reimagine your life journey through the eyes of compassion. With poetic passion, humility, and wisdom, Catherine Fransson describes the transformation of relationships that can only emerge when love is stronger than fear. This is a groundbreaking book—a spiritual compass for adult children caring for their aging parents.
