I am nearly obsessed by all things WWII, so choosing this book to review was easy. My choice was made even easier by the rave reviews I'd already heard about it.
The book was a bit difficult to get into, but I'm pretty sure that's because A Sparrow in Terezin is #2 in a series (The Hidden Masterpiece Series). So, while that made a bit of the book slightly confusing, I was still hooked, and it didn't make the plot too difficult to follow. It certainly didn't hinder my reading enjoyment!
Kristy Cambron wrote a compelling tale of faith, love, sacrifice, forgiveness, and finding beauty in the middle of some of the darkest, blackest ugliness the world has ever seen. I'll admit: I found Sera and Will's story a bit distracting, but that could have been because I didn't read the 1st book in the series...or maybe because I preferred to stay in the middle of the WWII action.
The Author's Note was especially interesting. Kristy Cambron has certainly done her research, and it shows in her work! So, if (when!) you read A Sparrow in Terezin, don't stop before you've read the Author's Note.
I give A Sparrow in Terezin 5 out of 5 stars.
