A Book You Won't Want To Put Down ~ A Sparrow In Terezin

This is the second book by Kristy Cambron that I have read and the second in this series by her. This book is as good as the first one and I loved it! I am a huge buff of history and was thrilled to see again the wonderful details that Kristy included in the story. The whole time I was reading it, I felt like I was really there and experiencing everything with the people in the book. Her description of events and the time period are wonderful! I love how she takes events that happened during WWII and brings them forward to how they have affected the lives of those today. It's a wonderful way to see how the lives of those who have gone before us really do affect us in unique ways. The characters Kaja and Sera seem so very real throughout and you can hardly put the book down! I can highly recommend this book to you and hope there will be more in the Hidden masterpiece series!

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.
