Sebastian - Christoph Fischer I received a free ARC of this book, in exchange for my fair and honest review.

"Sebastian" is the story of a man and his family, non-practicing Jews with a busy grocery shop in Vienna during WW1. I loved the way Mr. Fischer depicted his characters with all their flaws and weaknesses, both physical and mental. Yet, despite their limitations and conflicts, most of these complex human beings dig down deep and stay strong when tragedy strikes.

This is a great family saga with an interesting and enlightening historical background; a story not just about the war but about its politics and their effect on the Viennese. For any who are interested in historical fiction and family sagas, I highly recommend Mr. Fischer's work to you.
