‘A Sparrow in Terezin’ by Kristy Cambron | New Book Plus a Book-Inspired Giveaway

Last August I had the privilege to read Kristy Cambron's debut  book The Butterfly and the Violin.  There we met Sera the art dealer and who has a big  mystery to solve.  Well, Cambron has brought us back into Sera's world with her latest book A Sparrow in Terezin.

I want to start off by saying you really should start off with the first book in the series.  (The Butterfly and the Violin).  Cambron didn't waste the reader's time with a lot of back story but it would leave you a little lost in the story without that information.  I loved that she did it that way because I always skip over the repeat stuff in series.

Sera and William are onto another mystery of sorts involving the present and the past .They have to work though the reconciling the two to see if they can make their life together work.  This novel has two settings past and present.  In the past, 1942 we meet Kaja. She is a strong women and her story in Nazi times is  truly fascinating.  Her story made me think of my relatives I never met who lived in Austria and what trials and tribulations they must have faced.  By reading both of Cambron's stories I feel like I have a sense of that time.

This book wasn't as dark as the first book but it does share true accounts of what happened at that time in Prague.  There is no shying away that it was a difficult time in our history and we can only learn from the past and move forward to a better tomorrow. Cambron has an amazing gift in mingling the past and making it relevant to the future.  Life, death, romance, it is all in this novel!
