Every once in a while, you come across a book or a series that just totally grabs you…it’s one of those books that you know when you’re finished reading, you’ll put it on a shelf but actually *will* read it again (because, be honest, the majority of books are one-read-only, at least for me). I figure there are so so many books out there to be read, to get a second read through, the book must be exceptional. And that’s what the 2 books I have read from Kristy Cambron are – exceptional. Her newest book, A Sparrow in Terezin, was just as moving and enthralling as her first book in the series, The Butterfly and the Violin. Whenever you have a series of something, you run the risk of being let down. When the first one is amazing, the rest sometimes can’t compare, but I am super excited to read more from Kristy Cambron!
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.
