Sinossi


"Fresh. Fascinating. Unforgettable. The Butterfly and the Violin is a masterpiece of a debut." --Laura Frantz, author of Love's Reckoning

". . .impossible to put down." --RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 Stars, TOP PICK!

A Mysterious painting breathes hope and beauty into the darkest corners of Auschwitz--and the loneliest hearts of Manhattan.
Manhattan art dealer Sera James watched her world crumble at the altar two years ago, and her heart is still fragile. Her desire fordistraction reignites a passion for a mysterious portrait she first saw as a younggirl--a painting of a young violinist with piercing blue eyes.
In her search for the painting, Sera crosses paths withWilliam Hanover--the grandson of a wealthy California real estate mogul--who maybe the key to uncovering the hidden masterpiece. Together Sera and Williamslowly unravel the story behind the painting's subject: Austrian violinistAdele Von Bron.

A darling of the Austrian aristocracy of 1942, talented violinist, and daughter to a high-ranking member of the Third Reich, Adele risks everything when she begins smuggling Jews out of Vienna. In a heartbeat, her life of prosperity and privilege dissolves into a world of starvation and barbed wire.

As Sera untangles the secrets behind the painting, she finds beauty in the most unlikely of places: the grim camps of Auschwitz and the inner recesses of her own troubled heart.

"In her historical series debut, Cambron expertly weaves together multiple plotlines, time lines, and perspectives to produce a poignant tale of the power of love and faith in difficult circumstances. Those interested instories of survival and the Holocaust, such as Eli Wiesel's Night,will want to read." --Library Journal, starred review

". . . debut novelist Cambron vividly recounts interwoven sagas ofheartache and recovery through courage, love, art, and faith." --PublishersWeekly

5.0 su 5 stelle A MUST read for 2014! 9 luglio 2014
Di ChooseWisely - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This book is unbelievably INCREDIBLE. I will not be able to adequately express how much I enjoyed it. I urge you to buy it, read it, and be amazed by the storytelling ability of author Kristy Cambron. To be honest, when I request books to review, I ALWAYS choose books I know I will enjoy. Because of the heavy subject matter, I felt great trepidation in selecting this book. It’s about the Holocaust. Could there be a more serious and emotion provoking subject matter? Kristy Cambron has created a historical fiction masterpiece. I am so thankful I chose this book to read. I would easily rank Kristy Cambron with the greats like Francine Rivers.

I will not give anyway of the plot because that would be criminal. In short, The Butterfly and the Violin, is the first book in Kristy Cambron’s debut series. Art dealer Sera James is searching for a portrait she saw years ago in a gallery. The painting is of a beautiful violinist with her hair shaved and a numbered tatoo on her arm. This book is about the story the painting tells, and the impact the story has on Sera James.

While the book moves back and forth through time, I never felt confused or unable to follow along. Author Kristy Cambron writes with clarity and authority on her subject matter. Even though this book is classified as Historical Christian Romance, anyone, regardless of their reading preference, will certainly love this story. I could go on and on! Because I loved this book so much, I find myself anticipating the release of the second book in this series, A Sparrow in Terezin, available April 2015.

Not many book releases make it to my calendar! This one certainly has. I was given a complimentary copy of The Butterfly and the Violin from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine and I have not been compensated other than the joy I received from reading this book.

I didn't expect to like The Butterfly and the Violin as much as I did. I am a fan of historical fiction, but, often, when romance is added to it, the novel becomes more of a bodice-ripper or a dull history lesson. This novel is neither. Cambron uses the backdrop of WWII and the systematic annihilation of European Jews to frame the love stories. She does not use these terrible events in a sensational or morbid manner; the events are an integral part of of the parallel love stories of Adele and Vladimir and Sera and William, who meet during a search for a painting of Adele.

Adele is an Austrian violinist and the daughter of a prominent Austrian military officer, who is a Nazi. She is in love with Vladimir, a merchant's son who plays in the same orchestra. They are troubled by the events that happen after Hitler invades Poland in 1939 and the increasing antisemitism they find. Adele and Vladimir work to help victims of Hitler's Final Solution. They are caught, and both are sent to Auschwitz. It is there that they become members of the Men's Orchestra and the Women's Orchestra. It is also there that another inmate paints a portrait of Adele. This portrait becomes important to Sera and William, seventy years later.

Through their search for the missing original of the painting, Sera and William meet, and their relationship broadens. Their search is resolved, but no spoilers here.

I was taken by Cambron's attention to detail. Whether writing about Adele's triumph playing for Nazi dignitaries or her performances in the camp, as people were sent to work or to the gas chambers, she evokes the right tone and gives rich detail. She also rounds out the characters. Adele becomes more than just the spoiled only daughter of a rich military officer. I appreciate how she grows Adele from a naive, slightly spoiled, young lady into a strong, selfless woman. The transformation is believable and centers the other characters in the novel. Sera grows from being guarded, tentative, and hurt into a strong women. Vladimir is not a finely drawn as Adele, but his strong ethics and passion for Adele are detailed. William fares better; his character is also guarded, but for a different, and surprising, reason. This is one of the few books that I would like to read a sequel to, just to follow Sera and William as they continue their lives together.

One last surprise for me--I didn't really look at the publisher when I bought this book. I just scanned the description and liked that it was about a piece of art and WWII. I suppose some would characterize this as "Christian" fiction. But to do so condescendingly would be a mistake. The faith of each of the characters is not the highlight of their personalities or life. They are Christians, and they each live out their faith. Unlike many Christian romances, this is not preachy, shallow, or unrealistic. The characters do not berate or push their faith on others, but it is their faith in God that ultimately leads them to make the decisions they do. I appreciate a book about Christians that is also just good fiction. Period.

The Butterfly and the Violin has received numerous rave reviews and countless recommendations. I wasn't sure a book could measure up to the praise I'd seen. I have to say that this book went beyond my expectations. I was enraptured and captivated by this haunting masterpiece! My emotions were all over the place.

The story line transports the reader from present day New York to WWII Auschwitz and back throughout the novel. This parallel story is woven together by a highly desired portrait of a young woman, with only a copy of a painting, and no clues to where the original is located, or the name of the artist.

Characters are so realistically portrayed that I could feel their emotions through the written page. I lived the music as it was performed, with the rising pitches and tones of the orchestra and violinist. I can only imagine minute fragments of the agony of the Holocaust and the depression the detailing evoked.

This is one of the most compelling and haunting novels I've read, and I must say that I will be following this author's future works. I am about to begin A Sparrow in Terezin with the hope that it also evokes the emotions and passion that is revealed in The Butterfly and the Violin. I highly recommend this masterpiece!

5.0 su 5 stelle One of the best books I have ever read and highly recommend that you read it too! 4 maggio 2016

This is one of the best books I have ever read and I am a serious reader, reading up to7 hours a day and many books per week. Therefore I have a vast knowledge of books and know what makes a book an enjoyable read and some of those things are a well thought out plot with varying happening do good, bad, stressful, victory, hate, love, evil, good etc,Next is the characters and the depth they possess as it has to be enough to make you believe these are real people, people w pasts and hardships, love and broken hearts, victory over hardships, a good backstory of where they're from and their childhood, what makes them tick. Next, the involvement of the characters w one another has to be realistic with fun outings, things in common, but also disagreements, arguments and make ups always coming back to each other, what draws them together and what keep them together. Next and very importantly the time, era and place where the plot takes place. This plot took place in Europe during WW2. The author has to study the era and place very thoroughly when it's a plot that's happening during a well known historical event. It should have small cliff hangers throughout to keep the reader turning the pages, but should end w all the loose pieces wrapped up and questions answered. A well written book becomes a small part of your heart that you carry w you forever and you find yourself thinking about the story and the people in it as if they are your long lost friends and you wonder how they are and even miss them. Every book I open my heart to and give my time to affects me in some way, mostly good and wonderful ways and once in a while negatively, but regardless of those emotions a good book has me closing the book after the last sentence w a smile on my face, contentment in my heart, a more aware and learned person on the subject of the book and a better person all around, for reading books to me is more than a source of entertainment, reading books are adventures and events that I encounter through my imagination and with my heart invested those circumstances are real to me for the duration of the book and very often for the rest of my life for the ones I choose to carry w me always in my heart and mind! The Butterfly and the Violin accomplished all the aforementioned qualities that make a book great and it has impacted my life making me a better person, I learned more about WW2 from a historical view and deeply felt that the characters were friends and people in my life and this is one of the books I will forever carry w me in my heart and mind! It fulfilled all my criteria for a book to be not only a good book, but a great read and for that this book gets an A+! Buy it, Read it, Live it, Enjoy it!

Deeply poignant and heartfelt. This is one of those stories that lingers with you forever. I quickly found myself immersed not only in Adele & Vladimir’s story but in Sera & William’s story as well. Kristy has a wonderful ability to take her reader on a delightful journey of words thru the very pages of history and back.

Adele on the surface seems to be the perfect society girl; she plays the violin in the Orchestra, and “Austria’s sweetheart”. However, upon getting to know her, we quickly see that she has a heart for the less fortunate and a strong sense of wanting to see that others are treated fairly, even to the point of putting herself in danger. Adele fell in love with Vladimir from the beginning, but he is more hesitant. He’s from a tradesmen family and knows that her high-society parents will not approve. He can’t help but be attracted to Adele as he tries to watch out for what he feels is her best interest.

Sera has thrown herself into the successful opening of her Art Gallery. After being left at the altar, she has little need for entanglements. She has been searching for years for a painting that she saw once when she was 8 years old on a trip to Paris with her father. The eyes of the women in the painting seemed to draw her in and stayed with her. Sera’s search leads her to William, as he is also searching for the painting. Can they find a way to work together to uncover the secrets long hidden by time?

Both Adele and Sera struggle and grow in their faith. They may be separated by time, but they are united in their discovery that finding a lasting peace in Jesus brings the comfort they are seeking.

I loved this story and look forward to reading A Sparrow in Terezin.
