Today, I want to spotlight a very exciting new book release from a talented author. As many of you know, I am very passionate about human rights issues. The historical fiction novelist Christoph Fischer has written the stellar Three Nations Trilogy, which show the effects of war from both personal and nation-wide standpoints. His latest book, which was just released this week, is called The Black Eagle Inn. It asks these important questions: How does a Nation recover from its collective shame, how does it rebuild itself into a modern state and deal with its horrendous past and the difficult path ahead?
Below is more information about Christoph Fischer’s latest novel:
The Black Eagle Inn (Three Nations Trilogy Book 3)
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.
