ABOUT THIS BOOK

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 for distraction reignites a passion for a mysterious portrait she first saw as a young girl—a painting of a young violinist with piercing blue eyes.

In her search for the painting, Sera crosses paths with William Hanover, the grandson of a wealthy California real estate mogul, who may be the key to uncovering the hidden masterpiece. Together, Sera and William slowly unravel the story behind the painting’s subject: Austrian violinist Adele Von Bron.

A darling of the Austrian aristocracy, 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: in the grim camps of Auschwitz and in the inner recesses of her own troubled heart.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

This was such a wonderful read! I loved it! Though at times I had a difficult time reading what was happening to Adele and the rest of the prisoners. I felt so bad for Adele because of the circumstances that landed her as prisoner, and then the horrible things she and the ladies with her had to do. And in modern day, Sera was so determined to find the special painting, so would do almost anything, even if it meant flying cross country and meeting a wealthy stranger. The process of finding the painting and the story behind the painting was an amazing story to read. This is a book that will keep your nose in the pages until it is finished. And along with the story of the painting, the two heartwarming romances will warm your heart and stay with you for a long time. This is truly a unique romance story.

I received this book from Litfuse to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
