Susan Karsten’s Latest Book Review: The Butterfly and the Violin, by Kristy Cambron

Romance. The holocaust. A mystery involving a painting. A fabulously rich legacy.  Have I got your attention?  All the mentioned elements are in this book.  This is the debut novel for the author, and I am quite impressed.

One measure I have for a good book is if it makes me cry.  This book has a distinction that it caused my eyes to weep over and over as I read this riveting tale.   I don’t want to give away the story, because you’ll want to discover this treasure on your own, but I can assure you that it is a very rewarding read and well-written.  Cambron seamlessly moves between current day and the tragedy of the holocaust during WWII.  The heroine, and hero are great ~~ Oh, yes, you get two of each!  The wrap up is satisfying.  I can easily see this being made into a hit movie.

What’s your favorite WWII book or movie? Please leave a comment. Thanks!

    • This one’s really good. ALSO, the story moves between current times, and the past. I am not kidding you, tears would actually leak out of my eyes as I read, not even knowing I was crying.

      • What a beautiful review!! And I also love the photograph. I wish I could sit in that living room and chat with you, my friend. : )

        My favorite WWII Era movie (of which there are MANY): The Best Years of our Lives (1946). I cried buckets the first time I saw it. A completely moving film you’ll never forget. Highly recommend!
