Waiting On:
Title: A Sparrow in Terezin
Author: Kristy Cambron
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Publication Date: April 7th, 2015

Synopsis:
From GoodReads
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 fiance 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, Kaja 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, Kaja 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 Kaja 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 Kaja will fight to protect all they hold dear.
Why I'm Waiting:
After having read Kristy Cambron's debut, The Butterfly and the Violin (if you haven't read it yet...do it!), I can't wait to read her next book. She has a beautiful way of telling a story. I also loved how the story was a mix of contemporary and historical fiction with a bit a mystery and romance...it had everything and it worked together flawlessly! Can not wait for this one, it looks to offer the same!


What are you waiting on this week?
