Another 5 stars, thank you Graham Sharpe http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/545354189 If you’ve read the blurb and any of the other reviews then you’ll already know that this is a story about the Weissensteiner family and their troubled journey through the Second World War. I’m not usually drawn to stories like this because I think I have a pretty good idea what’s going to happen. A Jewish family, Hitler’s revolting regime and the horrors of the Holocaust can only have one dire outcome. It’s a bit like watching a film about the Titanic – you know the ship’s going to sink so why put yourself through it. I was so wrong to make this assumption. It seems paradoxical that a book chronicling hatred, fear, loss and death can be uplifting, but The Luck of the Weissensteiners left me on a high. This is a story about the best human qualities: love, generosity, trust, faith and hope. Christoph Fischer has brilliantly combined emotive fiction with detailed, historical facts to create a powerful and engrossing story. Although I finished reading it five days ago I’m still affected by its message and still charmed by many of its characters. I work regular nightshifts and my sleep is precious, but this book often kept me up well past my bedtime.
