The Crest is a well-researched page-turner set in Prussia, Germany in 1917. It follows the career of an idealistic, patriotic young man, Gerhard, as he leaves home to fight for Kaiser Wilhelm and the Fatherland. The story that unfolds is rich in historical detail and suspense. It was a pleasure to read Jerena Tobiasen’s novel both for its vivid imagery, vibrant prose and well developed characters.

The Crest is an exceptionally well-written and detailed book. It follows the life of a German family through World War I and World War II–not something you read every day. The details are exquisite. I imagine that the author did a fair amount of research to get them right. If you like war stories with a human angle or sprawling family sagas, you will love this first book in the Lange family story.
