A Sparrow in Terezin (#02 in Hidden Masterpiece Novel Series)

Kristy Cambron
Also Available In

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 fairy-tale wedding just around the corner, Sera James feels like she's stumbled into a charmed life-until a brutal legal battle against fiancé William Hanover threatens to destroy their future 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 with the man she loves.

1942-Kája Makovsky narrowly escaped Nazi-occupied Prague in 1939 and was forced to leave behind her half-Jewish family. 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, she 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 them and fight to protect all they hold dear-even if it means placing their own futures on the line.

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.
