Happy Friday! It’s that time of the week again! This week’s book featured is:
A Sparrow in Terezin
By: Kristy Cambron
My First Line:
The last thing a bride needs to fret over on her wedding day is whether the ceremony will take place.
I haven’t read this book yet but I just purchased it two weeks ago (plus I need to read book 1 The Butterfly and the Violin first), but I can’t wait to read it! I was introduced to Kristy Cambron this year with her book The Lost Castle and after reading that I’m excited to read more of her work! 🙂
About the Book:
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 fairy tale wedding just around the corner, Sera James feels like she’s stumbled into a charmed life until a brutal legal battle against fiance William Hanover threatens to destroy their future 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 with the man she loves.
1942: Kaja Makovsky narrowly escaped Nazi-occupied Prague in 1939 and was forced to leave behind her half-Jewish family. Now a reporter for The Daily Telegraph in England, Kaja 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, she 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 Kaja must cling to the faith that sustains them and fight to protect all they hold dear even if it means placing their own futures on the line.
Now it’s your turn!
