Litfuse Presents A Sparrow in Terezin Kristy Cambron


A Sparrow in Terezin

Kristy Cambron


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.

I’ve been waiting to read this book since I read the first book in this series from Kristy Cambron. I love the two parallel stories, or two women in entirely different time eras. But yet so much alike. Present time Sera James faces a lonely life with her husband spending time in  prison for something he didn’t do. When Kája Makovsky returns to her home city to rescue her family, she faces loosing the man she wants a life with. As the story unfolds for both of these ladies, I was so glued to this book, I couldn’t put it down. Ms. Cambron does such an amazing job of switching back and forth between the past and present lives of the two ladies, I found the story very easy to read and comprehend.

My only thing with the book was, I wanted more of Sera and William’s story. The book starts off with their wedding, and William’s arrest before the reception, and not much of their story was in the first half of the book. Kaja’s story was awesome as well, but I still wanted more of the present time. All in all, this is a great book, written very well, and well worth your read!

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.
