It’s not easy to put heart into an era that was filled with so much hatred and intolerance yet Christoph Fischer does it in The Luck of the Weissensteiners. It was well written with a focus on the interpersonal relationships and the human condition and not on the atrocities done to them, that played into the backdrop lending to this read being refreshing and different from so many others written around the holocaust. It’s a worthy and very good read.

Really enjoyed this one. Not what I expected and had a nice twist during a time that was very heavy historically.

This review is from: The Luck of the Weissensteiners (The Three Nations Trilogy) (Kindle Edition)
This is an amazing story that needed to be told I feel. I felt it was interesting to look at the events that led up to and during WWII from the average person’s perspective which isn’t often done. The combatants in the conflict are secondary which is quite refreshing. The author’s voice fits this story perfectly as the tales winds on out and I am entranced with it. Being a historical fiction fan I look forward to reading more from this author. With as thoroughly researched as this book appears to be I’m sure I’ll be missing out if I don’t hunt up his books and read them.
I was given a copy of this book for a fair review.
