Publisher's Summary

With the grand opening of her new art gallery and a fairy-tale 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 11th-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.

In 1942 Kája Makovsky narrowly escaped occupied Prague 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.

    Story
    "Excellent, highly recommend"

    Wonderful read. This book is a continuation of The Butterfly and the Violin and intertwines the lives of Sara and William with Kaja's life. I would highly recommend reading the books in order. The second hinges on the first, but oh how good the book is. It helps us remember how many lived and what they went through during the war times. Then it helps us see how Sara and William take the hard times in their lives and slowly work through them. Kristy Cambron is a relatively new author to me, but I will be reading more of her books!

    Story
    "BRILLIANT WRITING"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Sparrow in Terezin to be better than the print version?

    Oh yes, I get so caught up in the characters voices that you cannot wait for the next book to hear the rest of the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How the characters lives were pulled together from the past and it was a mystery but with each new character introduced it pulled the puzzle together.


    What does Carrington MacDuffie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The range of characters and voices she can do brings such enjoyment to the story. I will look forward to more audio books by her.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    You will never forget this story and want more.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, please continue to write I will look forward to the next book.
