SEEKING SEBASTIAN

Today is the day where I share the second book in the Three Nations Trilogy.

Just to give you an idea of how great this book is, read my review first!

Sebastian is a well written and intriguing tale of a young boy who sustains a disability. The rest of his life, he dedicates to proving his worth, not just to his father, but to others too. What grabbed me mostly about this book is that it highlighted how absolutely necessary communication is. So many situations could have been avoided and ended up quite differently. Not that I would change a thing. The way this book had been written and how it ended was just right!
The author had a way of changing the personalities of the characters as would be normal in the lifespan of a person and in accordance to their situations and circumstances. For instance his mother starts off as a loving and attentive mother, but when she starts socializing with her new lah-dih-dah friends, she becomes less involved with her son and more outspoken and almost snobbish. The characters will always surprise you with their reactions and behavior!

Apart from a beautiful love story, this book had a rich history lesson and a great many mysteries incorporated into it. I highly recommend this historical romance!



Synopsis


Sebastian, the second book in the Three Nations Trilogy, is currently in the later stages of editing and is expected to be published in spring 2013

While “Luck of The Weissensteiners” was set against the backdrop of World War II, in “Sebastian” Fischer turns back in time to the Vienna of the 1910s and tells how a different family in a different era is confronted with similar themes, albeit under less extreme circumstances.

Sebastian is the story of a young man who has to come to terms with the amputation of his leg just before World War I. When his father is drafted to fight he has to step up and manage the family grocery store through the hard times, bad fortunes and changes of personnel.

Vienna is the capital of a multi-cultural and multi-religious, liberal society that is on the verge of collapsing into several split nations, a development accelerated by the war. Against this backdrop Sebastian is finding himself and his own place in life

This is pictures of Vienna during the war! Cool huh?
