Editorial Reviews


"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." - Roberta Rich, author of The Midwife of Venice, The Harem Midwife, and A Trial in Venice

"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."

Malcolm van Delst, author of Do the Wrong Thing

About the Author

"The thrum of city life runs through my veins, and I draw energy and inspiration from my west coast lifestyle. I've had stories swimming in my head my entire life, and when I returned to the west coast, those stories surfaced with a determination to be heard." Jerena Tobiasen grew up on the Canadian prairies (Calgary, Alberta and Winnipeg, Manitoba). In the early '80s, she returned home to Vancouver, British Columbia, the city in which she was born. Although Jerena has occasionally written short stories and poems since her return to Vancouver, it was not until 2016 dawned, that she began writing her first full-length manuscript, which was set primarily in Germany during World War I and World War II. When that draft was complete, she travelled to Europe and traced the steps taken by the story's primary characters. Then, she rewrote that manuscript, embellishing it with experiences and observations. The manuscript evolved into three volumes, the first of which tracks a family of German soldiers through two world wars (The Crest). The second volume tracks a family of Roma who are forced to flee Germany during the early years of Adolf Hitler's round-up of undesirables (The Emerald). The third volume reveals what can happen when the paths of two very different families collide (The Destiny). Together, these volumes became the saga The Prophecy.
