The Butterfly and the Violin

July 12, 2014

I have not read a book recently that has moved me to tears as much as this book has.

You will look into two women's lives; Sera, an art gallery owner seeking a painting she cannot get out of her mind and Adele, the woman on the painting. 

Adele plays violin for the Third Reich in 1940's while Hitler is trying to eradicate the Jews. She falls in love with a young man who plays the cello in the orchestra that she accompanies. Together they try to help Jewish friends escape the city. 

The plot thickens and the perspective changes when they are both caught and their worlds are turned upside down. 

You will feel what Adele feels, see what she sees, hear what she hears. The history is so rich and makes you feel like you are there with her.

 Sera is on a quest to find a painting of Adele holding her violin, with her head shaved and arm tattooed, she is enthralled by what this painting symbolizes in her life. She faces many challenges while looking for this painting, seeks her own spiritual renewal and finds love. 

This will be one book that will find a place on my bookshelf to be read over again and again.
