BLACK EAGLE INN News & Reviews

1 Comment Book Reviews, News

BEI 2Although a little in the shadow of its two predecessors THE BLACK EAGLE INN is doing rather well in terms of reviews and sales. Here are some recent highlights from Amazon reviews:

Powerful and Moving, February 5, 2014 The Black Eagle Inn

This story was so moving, with so many different emotions, I found myself feeling sorry for the family. This was a perfect example of how money can corrupt, and destroy an otherwise simple family. How sad that there could be so much infighting and lack of loyalty among family members, that it was carried from one generation to the next.  images (2) The Hinterberger family is a clear example of a dysfunctional family in spite of all their riches. It was also sad to see in the end, all the fighting and greed over money that the only family members who achieved a modicum of happiness were the ones that had the good sense to walk away from it all… In the end, death will have its due. Great story telling, powerful and moving.

A well-thought out look at life in post-war Germany,

BEI post war 1
This book is quite a feat. It has an enormous cast of characters – and each of them is well-thought out and painstakingly developed. The author seems to move with ease from one character’s mind to the next and presents a complete point of view for each. I can’t add much to what the other reviewers have said, other than to add my vote and recommend it as both an educational and an entertaining read – it teaches us history but is not missing any of the elements of ambition, desire, intrigue, and betrayal that are worthy of the most popular soap opera.

Black beauty!! Absolute must read book.,

January 20, 2014

This review is from: The Black Eagle Inn (The Three Nations Trilogy) (Volume 3) (Paperback)
Set in Germany, this exquisite story follows the life of the Hinterberger family from the onset of the Great War through to the late 1970’s. It is not so much a Historical novel as it is a tale of love, betrayal and ultimate redemption. Even though there is very little action, the author cleverly pulls you into to the story with relateable characters and intriguing plot maps. images (10)
Anna Stockmann owns the Black Eagle Inn along with her husband, Herbert. While he is away fighting in the 1940’s war, she runs the business and farm, which soon becomes the source of contention as her nieces and nephews along with her adopted son, vie to be the next successor to take Anna’s place and inherit the family fortune. Then her husband returns from war a changed man!

This book is well written and cleverly unveils a side of German history we are not aware of. You do not need to be a history buff or even like Historical fiction to enjoy this book. There is something in it for everybody and this books guarantees to have you wonder what happens next. I can not wait to read the rest of the books in this series!

The Black Eagle Inn (Three Nations Trilogy Book 3)

Bavaria 1

The Black Eagle Inn is an old established Restaurant and Farm business in the sleepy Bavarian countryside outside of Heimkirchen.  Childless Anna Hinterberger has fought hard to make it her own and keep it running through WWII. Religion and rivalry divide her family as one of her nephews, Markus has got her heart and another nephew, Lukas got her ear. Her husband Herbert is still missing and for the wider family life in post-war Germany also has some unexpected challenges in store.

Once again Fischer tells a family saga with war in the far background and weaves the political and religious into the personal. Being the third in the Three Nations Trilogy this book offers another perspective on war, its impact on people and the themes of nations and identity.
