Reviews: what others say…

“Incidentally, this author is the Queen of unconventional happy endings. You can expect a rocky ride, but you will get the resolution you require.” – Debbie McGowan, Hans’s publisher

“A moving, compassionate, and poignant tribute to the enduring bonds of family amid disease, this account should be a must-read for anyone in the throes of an ordeal involving Alzheimer’s disease.”Kirkus Reviews

Family Ties tackles the issues of non-traditional relationships, monogamy, parenthood, and family — the family we’re born into, and the family we choose to build.  The intimate history weaved into the narrative brings the high stakes sharply into focus, allowing the reader to identify strongly with his rich characters and the complicated twisting road that has brought them to this critical point in their lives. – Rik McNeil – WEBL/WUMY Memphis”

“Would I read another from this author, already downloaded another, so the answer it: MOST DEFINITELY!!! – Claudine Clarke, Pennsylvania, after reading Jonathan’s Hope

Writer_compliment_Hans-HirschiThe Opera House is another powerful Hans M. Hirschi story. There is a healthy dose of drama and romance in this story, social issues such as homelessness, child abuse, and homophobia added a deep level of depth, so, I read this book through the night. I loved the end…I was left with warmth, relief, and contentment. – Lily from Perth, Australia”

“I do not know what to say. After reading Jonathan’s Hope, I don’t think I will ever be the same. As I’m reading it, it’s as if I’m feeling everything for myself. I love it! – Luie Anderson, Kentucky”

The Opera House does what the ‘blurb’ says. It’s an emotional fistfight of a read that will knock you down each time you struggle to your feet, but you, like Raphael will end victorious. This is awesome writing by Hans M. Hirschi. I’m sold.”

“A remarkable must-read novel from an emerging master storyteller.” – Diane Anderson-Minshall, editor at large, Advocate Magazine

“It’s authors like you that will be the Jane Austens and Charlotte Brontës of LGBT literature.” – Phetra H. Novak, author

“I had the sense of being invited into his home to pull up a chair and hear a story. The flow of the narration has an almost personal feel to it. This is what I love and why I keep coming back to read more.” – A.M. Leibowitz, author

“I’ve read a lot of books by Hans Hirschi. You might even say he’s one of my favorite authors.  Each story is a journey into the lives of characters who courageously battle not only their own issues but also the world that isn’t always accepting of people who fall outside the box.  The characters he writes about are strong, compassionate and independent. Characters who refuse to be anything but who hey are despite what people think. They embrace the good and the bad while trying to understand those who may not try to understand them. These are the kind of characters that make you want to be a better person.” – Tracy Willoughby, reader/reviewer
