Book review – a Sparrow in Terezin by Kristy Cambron

First let me say that I received this book complimentary from book look bloggers website in exchange for an honest review.
Good reads synopsis

 Two women, one in the present day and one in 1942, each hope for a brighter future. But they’ll both have to battle through their darkest days to reach it.

“Today. “With the grand opening of her new gallery and a fairytale wedding months away, Sera James appears to have a charmed life. But in an instant, the prospect of a devastating legal battle surrounding her fiance threatens to tear her dreams apart. Sera and William rush to marry and are thrust into a world of doubt and fear as they defend charges that could separate them for life.

“June 1942. “After surviving the Blitz bombings that left many Londoners with shattered lives, Kaja Makovsky prayed for the war to end so she could return home to Prague. But despite the horrors of war, the gifted journalist never expected to see a headline screaming the extermination of Jews in work camps. Half-Jewish with her family in danger, Kaja has no choice but to risk everything to get her family out of Prague. But with the clutches of evil all around, her escape plan crumbles into deportation, and Kaja finds herself in a new reality as the art teacher to the children of Terezin.

Bound by a story of hope and the survival of one little girl, both Sera and Kaja will fight to protect all they hold dear.

First let me say from reading the reviews I knew this was gonna be a good story, but and yes there’s a but. The way the it is written how back and forth between both stories of the two main characters and it got a little confusing for me and made it difficult to keep track of the story line. I didn’t get all the way threw the book because of this, it became frustrating for me. I will say the story is a good one and the author has a good way of telling the story, I just couldn’t get into it. 

I will try to revisit this book when  I can really focus on the way it is written, I would however recommend this book.
