Not as good as her first book
3 stars By Iola, Apr 10 2015
A Sparrow in Terezin is the sequel to The Butterfly and the Violin, and the two books do need to be read in order. While A Sparrow in Terezin is a good novel, I didn't enjoy it as much as I expected, as I didn't think the two timelines worked as well. I found the present-day timeline frustrating, as it didn't seem to be moving the story forward and the link between present and past seemed contrived (I can only assume the minor character linking the stories will actually turn out to be a major character in a later book).

It didn't help that the past plot took a long time to get to the point-it's not until two-thirds of the way through the book that Kaja arrives in Terezin, by which time I'd been so involved in her London story that I'd forgotten the implications of the title. The sequence of events which lands her in Terezin, a ghettoconcentration camp, seems unlikely and her motivation for taking those steps is noble, I didn't think it fitted with her character as it had been shown.

The writing and research were excellent, although the Christian aspects were too oblique for my taste. I thoroughly enjoyed Kaja's story for the first two-thirds of the book, but I found the last third seemed disconnected, and I didn't get into Sera and William's story at all. The result was a novel that didn't meet my expectations, and left me feeling "meh" in the end.
