“The Butterfly and the Violin,” by Kristy Cambron

My review of "The Butterfly and the Violin" by Kristy Cambron“The Butterfly and the Violin,” is a beautiful story. While I read this book, I experienced a reverence, which I will not soon forget. One would think, a story set in WWII, would not be beautiful, but this one is. The story actually moves back and forth from the present time to WWII.

Sera James owns an art gallery in Manhattan. She is searching for a WWII era portrait, a young violinist with blue eyes. William Hanover is the grandson of a wealthy California real estate mogul. William is also searching for the painting. Sera and William come together in the story and decide to join forces in their search for the art work

Adele Von Bron is the talented daughter of a high-ranking member of the Third Reich. Adele is sent to Auschwitz when it is discovered she is aiding the Jews.

When one thinks of Auschwitz, there is so much disease, suffering and death, while the reader does see the suffering in this book, there is also music, beauty and hope. Well-crafted!
