Praise for the Author’s Works

"The Crest offers an intriguing view into the personal lives of a family in war-torn Europe in the first half of the twentieth century. Depicted are not only the usual scenes of domestic life – industry, tradition, loss and love, but also all this in the background of a fierce loyalty to culture and country which is slowly eroding."

Henry Fast, Retired Educator
