A Sparrow in Terezin

Two women, one in the present day and one in 1942, each hope for a brighter future. But they'll both have to battle through their darkest days to reach it.

Today. With the grand opening of her new gallery and a fairytale wedding months away, Sera James appears to have a charmed life. But in an instant, the prospect of a devastating legal battle surrounding her fiancé threatens to tear her dreams apart. Sera and William rush to marry and are thrust into a world of doubt and fear as they defend charges that could separate them for life.

June 1942. After surviving the Blitz bombings that left many Londoners with shattered lives, Kája Makovsky prayed for the war to end so she could return home to Prague. But despite the horrors of war, the gifted journalist never expected to see a headline screaming the extermination of Jews in work camps. Half-Jewish with her family in danger, Kája has no choice but to risk everything to get her family out of Prague. But with the clutches of evil all around, her escape plan crumbles into deportation, and Kája finds herself in a new reality as the art teacher to the children of Terezin.

Bound by a story of hope and the survival of one little girl, both Sera and Kája will fight to protect all they hold dear.

My thoughts...

This book is just as awesome as the previous book in the series, it's one of those I could hardly stand waiting for the pub date. How would I describe it? Wow, it's heart wrenching but oh, so good. A one of a kind plot with unexpectedness throughout. I wanted to hurry and reach the end to see what happens but also wanted to savor each page.

Kristy Cambron has quickly become of my favorite authors, what a talent God has given her. Truly, I don't believe you will be disappointed in her books.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
