Kristy Cambron in her new book “A Sparrow In Terezin book coverA Sparrow In Terezin” Book Two in the Hidden Masterpiece series published by Thomas Nelson gives us another adventure with Sera James.

From the back cover:   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 fairytale 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 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.

1942—Kája Makovsky narrowly escaped occupied Prague in 1939, 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.

There are events that are happening to Sera in the present, some good, some not very good. Obviously she has to deal with them all. Then there are the events surrounding Kája in 1942 that she has to deal with. All of which is dangerous and highly suspenseful. Somehow the two situations are linked. I think Ms. Cambron has done an outstanding job, not only with this book, but with the entire series so far. Ms. Cambron gets us involved with the lives of these two young women and in the situations that they find themselves in. We root for them, we cry for the, we want them to succeed. Ms. Cambron’s characters come alive off these pages. I was really sorry when the story finished because I had to let them go. The good news is there will be another book in this series and I am already so looking forward to it.
