Three reviews in one day for The Luck of the Weissensteiner, that is what I call luck!

Thank you Christoph for allowing me to step out of my comfort zone and into your world of historical fiction. What an amazing read and one I will not forget quickly. It gave me a much greater insight into the lives of the Jewish community in eastern Europe during WW2, and their struggle to survive the multitude of obstacles and abuse. This is a must read! Well done Christoph, I can not wait to read book two of the trilogy.




I was recommended this book by a friend of the author. I have never been much of a reader of historical books and facts, however I was quite pleasantly surprised when I finally got stuck into the intertwining story of Greta and her family, extended family and friends.
It seemed a good portrayal of life for the Jewish community throughout Europe during the start and course of the second world war…nothing which I can remember being taught of at school. Although this is a fictional story and in parts not quite as beleivable as I would have thought, I can see that the author has made a great effort to show the reader what turmoils families endured to remain in contact with their loved ones, which must have been quite some feat considering the displacement of Jews after the war had ended.
Congratulations to Christoph, for what must have been many long hours researching details and information to ensure that the plight of the family was made ‘real’ to the reader.
