"The Texicans" by Jinx Schwartz is a fascinating historical novel that intertwines the lives of German Immigrants with the history of the state Texas from ca. 1800 onwards.
For this European/German reader it was an eye opener to learn so much I hadn't known about, yet be entertained with great characters and a good storyline at the same time.
I instantly took to the characters.
Overall, I must say that I am stunned by this book: knowing the author from her light-hearted and highly amusing detective series I am impressed at the effortless versatility.
With just the right balance between historical facts and storyline this is highly recommended.
