    2. This is a deeply affecting story. Mayer is a very talented writer, and he really brings the history alive. The flow and pacing are precise and pitch-perfect. The characters are thoughtfully and carefully presented and throughout the development of the novel, the reader gets a very real sense of the personalities behind the history. The turmoil in Germany (and the world) at the end of the First World War is palpable. The role of the post-War punitive treatment of Germany in the rise of extreme Ge [...]

    3. Jack Meyer’s novel, written in exquisite prose, is historically important and emotionally compelling. Its exploration of the roots and transformation of the main character’s antisemitism is both frightening and hopeful. Add this one to your reading list!

    4. Before the Court of Heaven by Jack Mayer is a stunning historical novel. It's based on a true event, World War I. In this book, I got to travel back in time. Placed in Germany. A frightening time in a world of confusion, conflict, and mistrust. War is something no one ever forgets. Before the Court of Heaven is a tale I'll never forget. The characters lives stayed with me even when I finished. I felt like I was there as the events rolled by quickly. Realistic. Every page was believable. Jack May [...]

    5. Exceptionally written, this story, based partly on fact, took me to a world I'd only slightly imagined. Of course, I've seen all the movies, listened to my grandfather's stories, and read about the atrocities of the Third Reich, but I have never seen it from this perspective, the German perspective. There is so much history here and I feel as though I was there in the world, right along with Ernst Techow.It is scary how "normal" the rise of the Nazis seems to have been, only to be followed by ho [...]

    6. I love historical fiction and I enjoyed reading a book from this time period from the German perspective. It was sobering to think how easily a good-intentioned individual can get swept up - and used - by powerful forces in politics. I enjoyed following the development of the character and the twists and turns that lead to his enlightenment and redemption. It's a great read!

    7. Mayer's writing is superb, and the stories he tells compel you keep reading long past bedtime. Before the Court of Heaven spills over with gripping history that we all benefit from knowing more about. And his insights into the hearts of both historical and fictional characters are profound and make us think about what matters. A must read!!
