A Sparrow in Terezin by Kristy Cambron

Book Review

A Sparrow in Terezin by Kristy Cambron was a great book to read.  This book takes place during modern times and also during WWII which means that it is pretty much guaranteed that I am going to like it.  I also read the first book in the series so if you missed that review you can click here to check out it.  You don’t have to read that book first to understand this book but it would be helpful.  I love how this books goes between two different time periods and really gives you the best of both worlds so to speak.  I love this authors writing and how she weaves both time periods together so seamlessly.    If you love WWII than I would for sure recommend both books to you!

About The Book

A Sparrow in Terezin (Thomas Nelson, April 2015)

Bound together across time, two women will discover a powerful connection through one survivor’s story of hope in the darkest days of a war-torn world.

Present Day—With the grand opening of her new art gallery and a fairytale wedding just around the corner, Sera James feels she’s stumbled into a charmed life—until a brutal legal battle against fiancé William Hanover threatens to destroy the perfectly planned future she’s planned before it even begins. Now, after an eleventh-hour wedding ceremony and a callous arrest, William faces a decade in prison for a crime he never committed, and Sera must battle the scathing accusations that threaten her family and any hope for a future.

1942—Kája Makovsky narrowly escaped occupied Prague in 1939, and was forced to leave her half-Jewish family behind. Now a reporter for the Daily Telegraph in England, Kája discovers the terror has followed her across the Channel in the shadowy form of the London Blitz. When she learns Jews are being exterminated by the thousands on the continent, Kája has no choice but to return to her mother city, risking her life to smuggle her family to freedom and peace.

Connecting across a century through one little girl, a Holocaust survivor with a foot in each world, these two women will discover a kinship that springs even in the darkest of times. In this tale of hope and survival, Sera and Kája must cling to the faith that sustains and fight to protect all they hold dear—even if it means placing their own futures on the line.

The Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron

Book Review GraphicThe Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron was an amazing book.  I do have to say that this book was hard for me to get through at certain parts because of how the story goes but that also is another reason that I loved the book.  I love all books from the WWII time period and this book didn’t let me down at all.  If you are going to read this book be prepared for it have sad parts but I wouldn’t let those parts stop me from reading this book.  It is one that I am going to keep in my collection because I loved it that much.

The Butterfly & the Violin

About The Book

A mysterious painting breathes hope and beauty into the darkest corners of Auschwitz—and the loneliest hearts of Manhattan.

Manhattan art dealer Sera James watched her world crumble at the altar two years ago, and her heart is still fragile. Her desire for distraction reignites a passion for a mysterious portrait she first saw as a young girl—a painting of a young violinist with piercing blue eyes.

In her search for the painting, Sera crosses paths with William Hanover, the grandson of a wealthy California real estate mogul, who may be the key to uncovering the hidden masterpiece. Together, Sera and William slowly unravel the story behind the painting’s subject: Austrian violinist Adele Von Bron.

A darling of the Austrian aristocracy, talented violinist, and daughter to a high-ranking member of the Third Reich, Adele risks everything when she begins smuggling Jews out of Vienna. In a heartbeat, her life of prosperity and privilege dissolves into a world of starvation and barbed wire.

As Sera untangles the secrets behind the painting, she finds beauty in the most unlikely of places: in the grim camps of Auschwitz and in the inner recesses of her own troubled heart.
