Introducing Christoph Fischer...

I had the extreme good fortune to bump into Christoph Fischer in the writers' support group ASMSG, to which we both belong. No, ASMSG don't make hernia belts, in case you were wondering.

Christoph writes literary, human stories, and his The Three Nations Trilogy series is set in a historical context, namely a Europe riven by twentieth century warfare. I have already read and reviewed Sebastian and The Black Eagle Inn and I was blown away. My 5-star reviews are on Amazon under the handle of 'Diogenes'.

Well, now Christoph has a new novel launching this week - on 15th May to be exact (though for a few quid more, I can probably get you a black market copy) - Time to Let Go. Read all about it below, and see Christoph's links. He is definitely an author to watch!

Time to Let Go is a contemporary family drama set in Britain.
Following a traumatic incident at work Stewardess Hanna Korhonen decides to take time off work and leaves her home in London to spend quality time with her elderly parents in rural England. There she finds that neither can she run away from her problems, nor does her family provide the easy getaway place that she has hoped for. Her mother suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and, while being confronted with the consequences of her issues at work, she and her entire family are forced to reassess their lives.
The book takes a close look at family dynamics and at human nature in a time of a crisis. Their challenges, individual and shared, take the Korhonens on a journey of self-discovery and redemption.

Quotes from the first reviews:
“A moving and insightful tale”
“An engaging story of how life can get in the way of the things that should really matter and the things that your heart should hold on to”
“A must read for anyone that has dealt with Alzheimer’s”
“Have kleenex on hand and know that this emotional story will stay with you, but it is worth the tears”
“Having once worked in a hospital dedicated to the care of Alzheimer's patients, I found was a heart-felt and realistic story”
“I cried when I read the book, but I also smiled at the ability of the author to capture the essence of human nature so beautifully. I can't recommend this book highly enough! Treat yourself.”
“This is a heartbreaking story but at the same time it has some wonderful moments.”
“This is a book with great insight, written with understanding and feeling.”
“Christoph Fischer has done an amazing job with a difficult subject. He shows a lot of understanding of human nature and a great deal of insight.”
“A fabulous, thought-provoking read,”
“This achingly beautiful swan song is honest, poignant, and ultimately uplifting.”
